What's New in Version 1.3
- bug fixes
I picked this one up, hoping it would resolve some issues, but it disappointed me on one big point: it does not recognize passwords. I tried a couple of different ones, thinking it might be an iPad-related keyboard issue, but even a simple lower case password was not recognized, and it kept asking for it. So it will not open password-protected zip files, which only makes it half-useful. The 'print in zip box' dialog takes forever to show up when I open the attachment in Safari. Initially, I thought it didn't work at all, then I realized it just took a while. So, if your main concern is zipping for file size, and security isn't an issue for you, then this app will work okay. If you need to open password-protected zip files, I doubt it will work - it did not work for me. Hopefully they will fix this bug soon. I need to open secured zips.
Ridiculous waste of time and money
This crappy app works about once every month... never when i need it. When I try to open a zipped file, I usually get a message saying "Mail cannot open this attachment", even though I have purchased Zipbox precisely for this purpose. Nothing I try to resolve this works. This is one more reason that the iphone makes a crappy business device - especially for corporate e-mail support.
Works as expected
Works fine on my iPhone 4 and iPad. You need to select "open in" ZipBox. Not sure what other folks are having problems with.
