WinZip Computing, a Corel company, has introduced an update to WinZip® for Windows 8, offering new options that make it easy to access, manage and safely share files from your Windows RT device. With direct integration with Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, the new WinZip for Windows 8 enables you to interact with multiple cloud services and social media channels - all from one easy-to-use, modern app. Users can start with a 15-day free trial and then subscribe for just $7.99 a year.

WinZip for Windows 8 enables you to manage all your file sharing accounts including ZipShare(TM), ZipSend(TM), Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Dropbox, SkyDrive and Google Drive from a single convenient location.


--  Remove the challenges typically associated with sharing files across
    your accounts, systems and devices in the modern Windows RT environment.
    WinZip for Windows 8 lets you take advantage of WinZip compression,
    encryption and extensive cloud service integration to open .zip and
    .zipx files from the cloud; save .zip and .zipx files to your cloud
    accounts; add files and folders from your cloud accounts to your zips;
    and unzip files directly to your cloud accounts. 

--  Use banking-level AES encryption to secure confidential files from
    prying eyes, whether they're sent by email, shared online or stored on
    your system.

--  Easily email large files by zipping your attachments or send them using
    the integrated ZipSend file delivery service.

--  Securely share any type of file and rich content on Facebook, Twitter
    and LinkedIn with ZipShare.

--  Use the Windows 8 'Share' charm to deliver zipped files to your contacts
    through email, social media or other apps.

--  Compress large files or entire folders for faster transfer and to save
    space on your device. New support for .zipx enables the best compression
    for files including JPEGs. 

"The new WinZip for Windows 8 simplifies file sharing on Windows 8 devices by giving users a central hub for all your file sharing needs. With its simple, modern design and the power of WinZip under the hood, this app makes it easy to access and send files from your Windows RT devices - saving everyday frustrations and making you more productive," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip.
