ZArchiver is a freeware tool capable of working with compressed files inside the Android platform. Thanks to this application, you can compress and decompress multiple archive types on your smartphone and tablet. The graphical user interface is composed of the folder view allowing you to navigate through the entire storage space of your device. Using this tool, you can create archive types like ZIP, 7z, GZIP, TAR, and others.
If you're looking to extract some archives, you can achieve this task as long as the file type is one of these formats: 7z (7zip), zip, RAR, rar5, bzip2, gzip, XZ, iso, tar, ARJ, cab, LZH, LHA, LZMA, XAR, TGZ, TBZ, Z, deb, rpm, ZIPX, MTZ, CHM, dmg, CPIO, CRAMFS, IMG (FAT, NTFS, UBF), WIM, ECM, arc (FREEARC), LZIP. Another important thing about this tool is that you can view archive contents of archives such as 7z (7zip), zip, RAR, rar5, bzip2, gzip, XZ, iso, tar, ARJ, cab, LZH, LHA, LZMA, XAR, TGZ, TBZ, Z, deb, rpm, ZIPX, MTZ, CHM, dmg, CPIO, CRAMFS, IMG (FAT, NTFS, UBF), WIM, ECM, arc (FREEARC), LZIP.
Plus, this application is capable of creating and decompressing archives protected with passwords. You can use ZArchiver to open archives files from the attachments inside your emails easier. In case you have a large compressed file, and you want to extract only a couple of files, you will be happy to hear that this tool supports partial archive decompression.
Besides all these features and functions, you can use this tool to open archives received through email applications. Please keep in mind that some compressed files might be password protected. To be able to read and extract the contents, you first need to have the correct password configured by the creator of that archive. Using the passcode of your phone won't help you with anything. Instead of browsing through the folder tree looking after your target archive, you should make use of the incorporated search function located at the top of the layout. Moreover, ZArchiver allows you to use national symbols in filenames thanks to its support for UTF-8/UTF-16 characters.
