New Winzip Mac 3 offers direct cloud sharing support
Today, WinZip announced its new file sharing app, WinZip Mac 3. Aiming to simplify management and projection of file sharing, WinZip Mac 3 offers direct support for Dropbox and Google Drive, complete with 128- or 256-bit AES encryption. Files that have been saved on cloud storage can be viewed and organized within WinZip; its new Cloud Picker tool allows users to see cloud files, rename files and folders, add zipped files and more. Other features in WinZip Mac 3 include an updated user interface, new shortcuts and a new Cloud Links tool for sending cloud files by email. Priced at $30, WinZip Mac 3 can be purchased from the App Store or directly from WinZip.
MailBox 2.0 for iOS adds Auto-swipe service
Email client Mailbox has been updated to version 2.0 for iOS, offering additional service features. Built directly into Mailbox, its new Auto-swipe feature automates common actions by learning frequently used gestures and selection patterns. This feature means that certain types of messages -- such as ones from known friends -- can be "snoozed" until after work, or otherwise sorted without the need to manually do so. Mailbox now uses Dropbox to sync preferences and Auto-swipe patterns across e-mail accounts and devices, so one's email experience is consistently integrated.
Mailbox has also announced the beta release of its desktop client version for Mac. Those interested in acquiring early access can do so by signing up.
