We had taken a look a few weeks back how WinZip 17 has been re-designed for social sharing and the cloud in the now ended giveaway. The new WinZip version brought in full-integration with cloud services like Dropbox, SkyDrive, and Google Drive and social linkage with Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. There was just one major player missing from the roster of major cloud services.
Now in a little update, Box is added to the lineup of supported services. The new WinZip 17 update with support for Box will be a free download for registered WinZip 17 customers.
WinZip users (or otherwise) looking to increase their available cloud storage options should definitely go for the download. Box has cross-platform support and also apps for Android and iOS along with Windows Phone. The Personal (Free) plan offers 5 GB of secure online storage. Upgrades are priced accordingly. WinZip can help make the most of this space by offering industry standard compression and Banking-level AES encryption. With better file handling features and social integration, it is a well-rounded offer.
Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip said in the press release,
With new support for Box, WinZip 17 connects to the industry’s leading cloud storage services, making it ideal for anyone who wants added security and convenience when saving and sending files. Whether you’re using the cloud for better collaboration at work or to backup personal info and memories, WinZip is the trusted and affordable solution that lets you store and share with confidence.
You can test with the trial version or go with the Standard retail versions at the suggested retail price of $29.95. WinZip 17 Pro is available for $49.95.
