    Winzip, the leading software for compressing/decompressing files

    • Lots of formats supported
    • Dropbox support

    • Encryption features

    WinZip is one of those software celebrities that anyone who has touched a computer in the last 20 years know about. Yes, WinZip is the most-known software to view, open, compress and decompress zip files. Although Android comes with a built-in zip utility, WinZip brings some extra features and formats to avoid any incompatibility.

    With Winzip you'll be able to zip/unzip lots of files formats such as: .jpg, .png, .gif, .rtf, .csv, .bat, .html, .asp, .apk, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .pdf and many many more. You can preview files in the app, no need to decompress them first. Of course, you can decompress files and folder separately. The iOS version of WinZip adds local and cloud file exploring functions, which goes beyond the classic features of the desktop app.

    Thus, you can easily share files and links with your contacts right from the app using Dropbox (that's the only cloud storage service supported so far). The full version unlocks file encryption options (Zip 2.0, AES 128 and AES 256).

    WinZip for Android is set in a neat, user-friendly interface that makes it a snap navigating through folders and files. It falls shorter than other similar apps as file explorer but it has all you need to manage your files and keep them safe.

    Q1: I am using WinZip to compress JPEGs, but the size didn’t change much. Why?
    A1: In order to compress your photos as much as possible, without any loss of photo quality, in the app Settings, choose Zipx (Best Method). This compression method examines each file and selects the compression option most likely to supply the best compression results.

    Q2: I used WinZip to protect a folder of files with a password, but the list of files can still be viewed. Why?
    A2: Even though the files or folder is encrypted, the file names can still be viewed (but not the file content). For this reason, we recommend that you avoid using confidential information in file or folder names. For example, avoid using account numbers or ID numbers (such as a social insurance number) in file or folder names.

    Q3: Why does WinZip Android need permission to access "Device ID & call information" permission?
    A3: This general access permission is used to better understand the device info when feedback is sent through email and for the WinZip app coordination and tracking with Google.
