Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Archives is an unarchiving app for your iPhone or iPad that can open pretty much any archive file in existence. It is based on the extremely popular Mac OS X app "The Unarchiver".
It can open files that have been mailed to you, files you encounter on the web, or even files from your computer through iTunes file sharing. It lets you preview the files inside archives, such as text, images or music. If you have another app installed that can open a file, Archives can also use that app to open contained files.
As it is based on The Unarchiver, it can handle a large number of different archive formats: Common formats like Zip, RAR, 7-zip, Tar, Gzip and Bzip2, as well as older formats like StuffIt, DiskDoubler, LZH, ARJ and ARC. It can also handle other kinds of formats, like CD and DVD images such as ISO, BIN, MDF, NRG and CDI, many Windows self-extracting EXE files, and can even extract media from Flash SWF files and images from PDF files. See the program home page for a full list.
What's New in Version 1.5
* Updated visual design for iOS 7.
* Add support for PMA files.
* Better support for broken Zip files.
* Fix bugs in handling of NSIS and MSI files.
Top decompression for iOS
UnArchiver is, imho, the top decompression app for iOS. It handles a multitude of different compression types (including rare, outdated, and obscure types) and does it's job well.
Highly recommended with one caveat: the developer has yet to update UnArchiver to fully support iOS 8. If that were done, this app would be as quantitatively & qualitatively perfect as I've seen in an app.
Best archive program in App Store
My favorite on Mac and iOS.
