    "I've been using RAR for 15 years. Maybe longer. So glad to have a mobile version of it. Think of it like a more efficient version of zip. Keeps files neat and tidy for sending them out"

    "I am always experimenting with new apps and programs on my laptop. I have an interest in acquiring programs that might be off the beaten path, and sometimes they come in zipped folders. I remember being a newbie and not knowing how to access the files in these folders. Then I got iZip for my device, and now extracting the zipped folders and files is a breeze. It's literally a couple clicks, and so easy that a grandmother could do it."

    "If you need a file compression app, Audio Compressor: Resizer may not be for you as it's meant to create MP3 files from RAW audio files and not compress other files. If you're a music fan thig may be useful but as a general compression tool, this isn't for you."
