View Full Version : Open zip office files in Mail

Jan 25, 2011, 11:56 PM
I was considering buying the 3 iwork apps from Apple to be able to read and edit excel, word and powerpoint documents on the ipad that I usually receive and send via email. The problem is that most of the files I receive via Mail come zipped and I'm not sure if Pages, Numbers and Keynote will be able to open them this way and don't want to pay for the apps before I understand how this works
So the question is: will I be able to open zip files with iwork? If not, is there a turnaround?

I'm not certain but I don't think that Apple's App natively support zipped documents. However you could use Goodreader; send the zip files to Goodreader from Mail, decompress them there and then open the files in Pages or Numbers.
