    This would be a cool app to save space, the idea is you can compress apps and games, and when you need them you can uncompress them, it seems somewhat logical

    any comments?

    The only problem I see with this is that it takes time to compress or uncompress files. Maybe for roms or something, but I can't see this practical for commonly used apps.

    Anyway I'm on the touch now and its listed in the utilities folder... There are a few of them but the ones that stick out are zip and unzip.
