WinZip for iOS 3.5 adds Google Drive and OneDrive support, makes zip file management easier

winzip-full_200x175WinZip has released WinZip for iOS 3.5, a major update to its iOS app for managing zip files on an iPhone or iPad. The latest version of the app, which is heavily discounted to just $1.99 until July 2nd, allows users to zip, extract, encrypt and share zip files safely.

Version 3.5 opens with added support for two new cloud-based storage accounts, with users now able to directly access both Google Drive and OneDrive accounts in addition to Dropbox.

To access cloud-based accounts, users need simply tap the account, provide credentials if required, and then the account is fully accessible. Users can zip up files stored online, unzip files to their cloud accounts and even create and save zip/zipx files directly to the cloud.

The app can also be used to download files from the user’s storage account and save it on their iPhone or iPad, plus -- thanks to improvements introduced in version 3.2 -- upload music tracks from the user’s device to their cloud storage.

Version 3.5 also tweaks the user interface to simplify the task of navigating files. The UI redesign also makes zipping up, protecting and sharing files simpler than before.

WinZip already supports the viewing of a wide range of document formats, and version 3.5 extends this further by adding support to the latest iWorks 13 formats for Pages, Numbers and Keynote.

The update is rounded off by providing users with access to WinZip’s helpdesk should users fail when attempting to open an archive file.

WinZip for iOS 3.5 is available now for a limited time for $1.99 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 7.0 or later. The normal MSRP is $4.99.
