Thanks, useful indeed on iOS. Only one thing I haven't figured out is how to handle zip files. When I download it with Yoink from the web, how can I unzip it and take some files out of the archive?

Hi Kor,
iOS doesn’t naitively support zip files, but there are a few third party apps that you could use. Winzip I believe is one. Hope that helps!

I'll look into it. Thanks.
