What can you use the app for?

WobZip simplifies the process of sharing many files. Zip files make it easy to pass along numerous files into one, easy to manage file. The problem is not everyone know show to manage all types of files. This is where WobZip comes in. Users can unzip files quickly from anywhere with internet access. Even if the user cannot install software on the computer they are using (such as at school or work), they can still access those files through WobZip. As the files are unzipped, WobZip automatically runs an anti virus scan to ensure that the files are not infected and are safe to download. WobZip also allows users to unzip many different file formats, rather than being limited by the software they currently have on their computer. Users can make handling compressed files much easier and safer when working with WobZip.

Alternative Apps
How does the web app look and feel to use?

The WobZip website remains simple with a wide, blue header showcasing the stylish, if not slightly humorous, WobZip logo in orange and green. Five navigational links, including features, updates, FAQ and support, are positioned along the top center of the page so the user can quickly navigate. The main area includes the actual upload tool, which is also kept very clean and simple. WobZip includes no clutter. However, during our test WobZIP only showed error messages while trying to uncompress a number of files.

How does the registration process work?

WobZip visitors do not need to register to use the site’s features. As soon as a new visitor arrives, they are greeted by the upload tool. The tool also allows the user to password protect the file they uploaded. Another link at the bottom of the upload box gives users the option of uncompressing from a URL. The flexibility is great and users can spend minimal time getting their files into a viewable format and more time actually using them.

What does it cost to use the application?

Anyone can use WobZip for free. There are no registration requirements. The site does not currently list a premium paid membership. Whether or not this will change in the future remains to be seen. No other information is provided as far as any future features or account options. Users can enjoy free access to all WobZip features.

Who would you recommend the application to?

WobZip is intended for anyone who needs to handle compressed files. The site should make life easier by eliminating the need to download software, which may not always be an option. But during our test it was not possible to unzip any of our compressed files.
