Our Review:

ZArchiver is a handy and excellent app for you to create archive files straight away on your mobile device with supported formats including zip, 7zip (7z), gzip (gz), bzip2 (bz2), tar and XZ.

Using the same app, you can also decompress or view the archive contents in the above six formats, besides some other formats such as rar, rar, rar5, iso, arj, cab, lzh, lha, lzma, xar, tgz, tbz, Z, deb, rpm, zipx, mtz, chm, dmg, cpio, cramfs, img, wim and ecm.

Working with files and folders with this app is pretty convenient in that useful tools are provided, either for searching, sorting, multi-select, select all, invert selection or deselect all, while long pressing a file brings up a context menu for zipping or unzipping together with other additional functions.

ZArchiver is also complete with user options to suit your needs such as password protection, compression level, extraction of split archives and character encoding besides other settings.

These are all built into this free version of app and good enough for average users, even though some advanced features such as theme selection is limited to the paid-for Pro or Donate version only.
