AURORA, Ontario (PRWEB) February 18,
2004--NSC today introduced CrunchIt 4.1, the next major release of its award-winning
compression utility. The software delivers new features in an affordable, easy-to-use
package for mobile users who want to secure and exchange files with other computers.
Fine-tuned for Microsoft Pocket PC and Windows Mobile devices, CrunchIt 4.1 supports more
file formats, an enhanced user interface and is the first product to offer self-extracting
ZIP files to this platform.
"CrunchIt is the swiss army knife
that every Pocket PC user needs," said Jeff Preston, NSC's President & CEO.
"With its winning combination of powerful features such as self-extracting archives,
performance benchmarking or the new UUencode/decode functions it solves a lot of problems
handheld users encounter on a daily basis."
CrunchIt helps users organize, search,
browse and secure ZIP archives in an easy-to-use fashion. The application builds on the
Microsoft Pocket PC user interface and allows users to edit seven different file formats
by tapping files and options. These capabilities enable users to store more data on their
handhelds and safely transfer files over the Internet.

will automatically unzip themselves.

built-in UUencode/decode features.
