WinZip has been the go-to archiver for managing files since as long as I can remember, and even though the archiver is still one of the most popular in the world, the developers were interested in how expand their services. With this in mind, they have developed a new service called ZipShare, which helps users share files from any location, cloud or local.

Even though the service is in beta testing, users who need to share files easily can still try it. The beauty of ZipShare lies within the fact that it allows users to share files from different cloud sources like Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, Box and a few more, making it a central hub for managing your online content.

ZipShare Unifies Cloud Storage, Local Storage and Social Networks


Apart from what we’ve told you so far, ZipShare has a few other features which might make it more appealing for those who aren’t still sold on the idea. The platform allows users to share their files not only with other people, but on social media websites as well. Sharing on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are supported now and for some added security, users can also password protect their files if they wish.

The service is free for basic users, but these accounts are somewhat limited. Free accounts only allow the uploading of files up to 50 MB and the files are stored for only 5 days. Additionally, free accounts holders can also use a few of the cloud storage managing features. But if you plan on investing in a premium account, you can turn this service into a cloud storage service.


After the using the service, I find it to be a great time saver, as it allows me to link all my cloud storage accounts to only one portal, from which I can view the combined space, manage and move files around. Overall, the service is very easy to use and it works pretty good, considering it is still a beta product.

If you’re interested in the service, you can try it out by creating a beta account, and for more determined users, the service allows Pro accounts for $39 .95 /yr or Ultimate accounts for $9 .95 /mo. The differences between all three account types can be seen on the website.

I often wonder, where is technology heading? What do all of these advances mean for us and for our future? I sometimes miss the days when I didn’t know how to use a floppy disk, or how a computer CPU works, but now, until I find an answer to my questions, I’ll keep tracking these advances and show everything I find to those who share my interests.
