WinZip, one of the most popular file compression softwares for Windows (Mac support was added in 2010), has landed on the iOS platform. Countless have relied on the utility for compressing/decompressing files, data backup and even file encryption. And now, as per app description, the mobile zip file management app can:
WinZip isn’t nearly as sophisticated in terms of its feature-set as ReaddleDocs, but for the price of free, there’s really not much to complain about. You can download the universal app now on the App Store for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

It appears that Siri has all but confirmed that Japanese support for the iOS digital assistant will be coming soon. If you ask Siri now what languages she speaks, you’ll get the reply “I can speak French, English, Japanese, and German… but I’m always learning.”. That said, Japanese isn’t an option yet under Siri’s languages setting. For full support, that may not happen until the next iOS update (5.1). As for additional languages, the FAQ section for Siri states that more will be arriving in 2012, including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Italian, and Spanish. So if you’re an iPhone 4S user who speaks one of these languages, hopefully it won’t be much longer before you can whisper sweet nothings to Siri in your native tongue.

Realmac Software, the devs behind Courier and RapidWeaver for the Mac, have just released Clear for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Designed with simplicity in mind, Clear is unlike any other Todo apps for the iDevice in that are all actions are gesture-driven (there are no buttons or icons for navigation). To create a new task, you can pull down with your finger, or pinch to move between lists. As for prioritizing your items, a color-coded “heat map” will identify what’s most important out of that particular list. What you won’t find in Clear are tags, contexts, calendar syncing and other functions you’ve grown accustomed to with apps like Pocket Informant or OmniFocus. If all you need is a simple yet fun to use Todo app, Clear should fit the bill nicely – especially for its intro price of $0.99. The demo video below will give you better idea of how it all works.
