Really useless


Cmon guys, you are better than this! Like a lot of the other reviews, this is an app that has very very minimal functionality, unless you buy it. I don't personally prefer this type of marketing. Price it up front: .99, 1.99, 2.99, etc. be CLEAR on just exactly what you are selling or not selling. I realize this is all the fad in the App Store now, but it still seems a deceptive practice to market this way. Not really a "try before you buy". More like a get a crippled app, struggle with it. Get frustrated. Delete it, move on to another app that works for the purpose you had hoped this one would have done. Little word of advice: Instead of responding back to your reviewer's negative comments with defensive statements, read your reviews, listen to your potential customers. Fix the problem. That will get your rating up. Not defending your approach. Lol.

The Premium version and its price is clearly listed in the App Store. There also is a comparison page in the knowledge base showing what the differences are in the feature sets - I don't know what you mean by zero Zip functionality. The free version will open Zip files and allow you to view supported files. In the case of photos, they can be "shared" with your Photos app, which is unzipping.

Waste of Time, Space, and Data

I’m planning on scraping my Facebook account but have several photos and videos I’ve uploaded to my it over the years. In order to download all these files from Facebook I needed an app to open an .zip file that Facebook provides for you. After searching the Internet, this app was suggested. I was hesitant to download it at first because of the low user rating, but I downloaded it anyway — boy, do I now regret it. Sure it copied the zip file, it displays the “folders” of the zip. But it DOES NOT show what’s in the folders. Every time I try to open them it ask me to pay $4.99 for the Pro version. Nope. Sorry. Not happening.

Developer Response

I have just tested the Facebook download. Most of the information comes as .html files, but it also will include pictures and videos if you do not uncheck those boxes. I had no trouble opening the Zip file with the free version of WinZip and each of the files opened with no problem. I do not know what the issue you had was. Perhaps it is how Facebook put the file together so that it might have included empty folders.

What are you downloading this?


If it worked fine. But you will download it and only frustrate yourself trying to use it. Don't waste your time and energy with this lying garbage!
