“Works with Voiceover”

Easily open and extract your zip files and archives and store them inside the app.

Zip Viewer lets you open zip file attachments from your emails, Safari downloads or other applications that offer a share/'open in' feature. (Also password protected zip files.)

Import zip files from iCloud Drive or other cloud providers such as Dropbox or Box (app needs to be installed on the device) directly from Zip Viewer.

Zip files will be automatically extracted and stored in the application documents directory.

You can drill down through the folder structure within the zip file. Files can be viewed by the build-in file previewer which supports file formats such as:

- iWork documents
- Microsoft Office documents (Office ‘97 and newer)
- Rich Text Format (RTF) documents
- PDF files
- Images
- Public text files
- Audio file (playback)
- Movie files (playback)

Share extracted files via email, Twitter, Facebook - Pass them through to other applications that support the file format (e.g. for editing) or printed via AirPrint. (functionality is depending on your device configuration)

The extracted files can be removed manually. The complete folder/file structure can be downloaded via iTunes file exchange too.

Use Zip Viewer alongside with Zip to Mail to get the full experience of viewing and creating zip archives. Zip to Mail is also available for free on the App Store.

Fatally flawed

Apart from the full screen adverts popping up every few seconds, it isn’t possible to export any files from this app: once you select this app as the destination for a zip file, both the original zip and its expanded contents cannot be exported.
I have lost several valuable files this way. Avoid.
