UnZip is this week's Windows Phone myAppFree Deal

Touted as the best file archiver for Windows Phone, UnZip is the myAppFree Windows Phone deal of the week.

The app supports a wide range of compression formats, password protection for the archive files you create and has support for multivolume archives. The Windows Phone app normally sells for $2.99 but through the myAppFree deal you can pick up UnZip for free over the next twenty-four hours. As an added bonus, being a Universal App, the Windows 8 version of UnZip is free as well.


Here's a quick rundown of UnZip's key features:

  • High speed zipping and unzipping
  • Can create and unpack archives with a password
  • Support for the following file formats: .zip, .gx, .bz2, .7z, .xz, .ixo, .lzma, .cpio, .ar, .lzip, .lzop, .lz4, .tar, .tgz, .rar
  • Support for multi-volume archives

The interface is clean and simple to bounce around and in just tinkering with Unzip for a short time this morning, the performance isn't too shabby.

UnZip receives nice reviews in both the Windows Phone and Windows Store, nailing a 4.5 star rating in both Stores. If you've been tempted to pick up either version of UnZip, now is your time to take the plunge and save a little through the myAppFree Deal.

The Windows Phone version of UnZip normally lists for $2.99 and the Windows 8 version has a price tag of $5.99. Over the next twenty-four hours you can pick both versions up for free.

The deal may not be reflected in the myAppFree Windows or Windows Phone app just yet due to time zone differences but the deal is already live in both the Windows Phone and Windows Stores.
