Windows 8 is launched recently and after that a host of applications has been designed and developed for the all new OS. Among other apps a common app used in Windows XP and Windows 7 is Winzip and Winrar. Winzip has launched a new version for Windows 8 (and RT). This app is capable app and will allow you to open existing ZIP and ZIPX archives or create new ones, then makes it available to be shared easily online.
With this new version of Winzip you will get files and folders presented using a clear, touch-friendly tile-based interface which fits in well on the Windows desktop. Although it is not equally powerful like the winzip’s desktop version but still it is a powerful app. With this app you can zip up files or folders, add password protection to restrict access to your archives, or lock the world out entirely by making use of WinZip’s military-grade encryption.
Winzip app is quite powerful tool to reduce the size of files and can save you enormous amount of disk space which can always be used for better purpose. However the best thing with the all new app of winzip is the ability to share files online.
The program neatly integrates with the Windows 8 ‘Share’ charm, and in just a few clicks (or taps) you’re able to safely send your confidential files via Facebook, Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive and more. However, all these features will come with a cost of 7.99$ subscription after 15-day free trial. Although it has awesome features, but 7.99$ is surely not a lucrative deal.
