ZipThat opens up a whole new world to you while using your iPad/iPhone! Before ZipThat, there was no way to open up zip files on your iPad/iPhone. This limitation has been shattered with this new utility app for the iPad/iPhone. No longer do you have to wait until you're at a desktop computer to view contents of zip files, or suffer through long downloads because you can't receive and open zipped files on your iPad/iPhone.

ZipThat works invisibly in the background... When you receive a zipped file via email or even IM, tapping and holding on it will cause the helpful "Open in ZipThat" menu to appear. Simply tap on it and the file will be unzipped and placed in a list of unzipped files for you to view. Tapping on a file will cause that file to be opened on your iPad. Whether it's a supported graphic file like JPG or GIF, an HTML file or a PDF, ZipThat allows you to view them all right from your iPad/iPhone!

ZipThat even supports password-protected zip files!

ZipThat is now also a zipThat a generic file viewer/reader for most commonly emailed file types including:

PDF Document
HTML Document
PowerPoint Document (PPT)
Excel Document (XLS)
Word Document (DOC)
Text Document (TXT)
M4A Audio
