With its powerful compression and encryption capabilities, WinZip 17 dramatically improves file sharing with direct integration to your accounts on SkyDrive®, Dropbox, Google Drive™, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn®. Built-in productivity features include converting files to PDF, adding watermarks and resizing photos while zipping. With a redesigned, more intuitive interface, WinZip 17 makes it easy to find the features you need, when you need them.

Key features:

• Manage and share from the cloud: With integration to your cloud accounts, easily see and manage your files directly from within WinZip. You can also share links to files in the cloud from your own email.

• Secure sharing in the cloud: Zip and encrypt before saving files on SkyDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive for worry-free sharing.

• Zip and share to social media: Use the integrated ZipShare™ service to broadcast any file format to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn®.

• Updated interface: Context-sensitive ribbon toolbars display the tools you need for zipping and unzipping, encrypting, sharing and more.

• Send larger files by email: With ZipSend, the integrated files delivery service, send large files and folders directly from your email without worrying about delivery failure and bounce backs.

Winzip is the defacto app if u need to compress large files into a more manageable Zip file. The wizard is helpful in getting beginners to learn to use it. It's got extra features to secure your files like encrypting, encoding and scanning. You can even create executables.

The only problem with Winzip, and it's far from minor, is that it is essentially limited to Zip files. For that only reason, I much prefer using Winrar, because RAR has a better compression ratio and because it handles all types of compression formats, not just Zip.

Pros
  • Encrypt
  • Create EXE files
  • encode and scan
  • wizard
Cons
  • Limited to Zip
