If you’ve already grabbed the WinZip app for Android then you’ll hopefully have noticed a cheeky little addition lately. If not, grab it now and you’ll now find that the app lets you encrypt, squish and share files directly to Dropbox.
It basically means that you have one central app to zip down your files and instantly back them up to your own private Dropbox account or, if you want to share them directly from your phone without the inbox “weight”, you can fire them off to a shared link hosted on Dropbox and send that instead. Nifty huh?
Grab the app for free and you can also create Zip and Zipx files, send archive files to contacts via email, receive and handle zip files plus you can manage and encrypt zip files from the app.
