ZArchive Manages Your File Archives

ZArchive Manages Your File Archives

Today smartphones are quite powerful devices that can handle multiple processes at once. In fact, some of our mobile devices are more powerful than older PCs from not too long ago. Certain operations that require much computing power can be done right on phones, such as the CPU-intensive task of archive management.

Not many of you may know that Android can be used to compress, decompress, and view content of various types of file archives. This is possible thanks to applications like ZArchiver, which was developed by XDA Forum Member Ant-ON. The application can be used create multiple file types like, 7zip, zip, bzip2, gzip–just to name just a few. The full list of supported formats to decompress is even more impressive, as the app can open almost every archive extension.

ZArchiver is not a new project, as its initial release was way back in February 2013. It’s still actively developed though, and Ant-ON recently released a new beta that makes the application compatible with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

If you work a lot on archives and want to have a useful tool to handle all your files, ZArchiver is exactly what you need.  You can read more about supported formats and other features that this application has to offer by visiting the official ZArchive application thread.
