Compressing Software for Symbian Mobile Phones

E-mail attachments are normally sent as zipped files, and unfortunately, there are very few phones that natively support zipped files. Every mobile professional who checks e-mail on the phone dreads these. Now easily access and even create Zip archives on your mobile – with Handy Zip!


This little application allows you to access and create zipped archives on the phone. When you start the application, it searches for any zipped archives on the phone and displays them. Just click on the relevant archive to go into it.

When you want to create an archive, go to Select > New Archive. Then, browse to the file or folder you want to archive and select it. The application allows you to choose between five levels of compression—from None to Maximum. You can also choose to archive sub-folders and sort archives by name or size in ascending or descending order.


The only drawback is that it is not free. But, If you are so much into mobile applications and works more on your mobile then this is worth a try.
