The ZIP app for Android allows you to manage archive files such as ZIP, rar, jar or APK on your device. Quickly and easily extract, open, view, or create your own archive by compressing files and folders.

Protect your files and folders by encrypting them in password-protected ZIP files. Encryption is a secure way to protect your files.

Archiving allows you to reduce the size of files or folders. You can also compress multiple files into a single smaller file, making it easier to send via email or share information.

You can archive files and large files on your device that you rarely use to save space on your Android device's disk. You can unpack them later when you need them.

More about archives:

  • Archives come in various formats, each with its unique compression algorithm. 7Z supports all common archives such as 7Zip, 7Z, Rar, Zip, as well as less commonly used archives.
  • Archives are usually found on the internet and need to be unpacked or extracted before their contents can be used. You need to unpack the files before you can use them.
  • Sometimes archives are encrypted. This means that they require a password to extract. This password was entered by the original author and is typically included in the download.

Some information about archive formats:

  • Rar and zip files have been the standard form of archive compression for decades, but recently the 7z 7Zip format has become very popular.
  • Zip files remain the most popular type of archive since Winzip popularized them on computers several decades ago. It also supports encryption. Zip files are stored with a .zip extension. You can also unpack files.
  • 7zip (pronounced "seven zip") is an open-source compression format that provides high compression ratio, speed, and reliability and supports multiple files. Files are stored with a .7z extension.
  • These days, Rar is less popular as 7z provides higher compression and zip offers greater simplicity than rar, but it is still a widely used format. Files are saved with a .rar extension.
  • Jar and APK archives use compression technology similar to the zip technology but are usually used for other purposes.
  • Jar archives typically consist of Java archives, and APK is used to store Android applications. They are stored in .jar and .apk formats respectively.
  • The tar format provides high compression for multiple files and is usually combined with the GZip (gz) format to further enhance compression. It is very popular in Linux systems.

Benefits of ZIP:

  • Supports all common formats and types of archives (zip, rar, 7zip, 7z, jar, apk, tar, gzip)
  • Create password-protected zip files (or unzip files)
  • Create archives with high compression, such as 7Zip or Tar.
  • Unzip zip files or extract password-protected 7Zip or 7z files (you need to know the password, 7z is not a password cracking program)
  • View the contents of multi-file format archives: 7Zip, 7z, Tar, Apk, Jar, Rar.
  • Background execution: create, extract, or unzip files even when the application is closed.
  • Intuitive file manager with standard file operations such as move, copy, and delete.
  • Progress and history
  • File associations for extensions (e.g., 7z) allow you to open files by selecting them from outside.
