[prMac.com] Bloxham, United Kingdom - Goo Software Ltd has released version 1.0 of Zippity, the easiest way to open zip files on your iPhone.
Zippity is the ideal utility app for anyone who needs to open zip files on the go. Zippity lets iPhone owners open zip files, preview the contents, mail selected contents to others, add photos to their device's camera roll, and send files from Zippity to other apps on their iPhone.
Using Zippity is simple. Once it's installed on an iPhone, the user can browse to a zip file online and tap the "Open in..." button in Safari to open the file in Zippity. Likewise, zip files received via email can be opened in Zippity with a single tap. Files in other iPhone apps (for example, Dropbox) can also be opened in Zippity.
Zippity has been designed from the ground up to be as intuitive and simple to use as possible. It uses standard iOS UI elements and metaphors throughout, meaning that occasional users don't have to re-learn the interface every time they use the app.
Zippity is an invention born of necessity. When Goo Software Ltd founder Simon Whitaker needed to open a zip file on his iPhone he was dismayed to find that none of the existing zip file apps on the App Store offered a simple, intuitive and uncluttered approach to opening zip files. Without hesitation he set about doing what any self-respecting geek would do: writing his own zip file app!
The next version of Zippity is already in the App Store review queue. It adds Dutch and Hungarian localisations of the interface plus some minor bug fixes.
