Berlin (dpa) – Users of Apple’s iOS devices grumble that the iPhone and iPad can’t natively open common file types like a zip file, but there’s help, if you know where to look.
Zip Browser, a free app, decompresses zip files so you can see what’s inside them.
You can set it up so that a context menu in your mail-reading program will offer the option to open a zipped attachment in Zip Browser.
What’s more, it can not only read PDF files and pictures, but also the Word, Excel and PowerPoint file types that belong to the Microsoft Office suite.
Zip Browser works on iOS version 6.1 and higher.
