Ratings and Reviews
Rename files and change file extension
I do a lot of extracting on my iPhone 8+, but I extract with a lot of different file types, such as a deb. With other apps, I just rename the dev to a rar and extract it. I can’t with this app, and I paid $5 for this. Not ruining, but annoying.
Sense of Security
The WinZip app has done great by me. It is the only way I’ve found to encrypt and decrypt zipped files in iOS, which gives me a sense of security when transferring data that I don’t want out there on the wire in plain text. I used the trial version to see how it fit my workflows before I decided to pay for it - great way to NOT end writing about how you lost your money... (I wish Vegas worked the same way!)
The interface is hard to get used to but it’s not impossible to figure out. I couldn’t bring myself to trust the other questionable app vendors for compression software. After all, this is giving free range to ALL of my data. I’ve trusted winzip on Windows and I’ll assume that same trust with winzip on iOS.
