This was exactly what I was looking for. It handles encrypted zip files allowing me to open from email just like other apps do. It does not try to be a file management tool so it is a small streamlined program. Once file is unencrypted and unzipped, it allows you to open in whatever app you prefer to support your file management, like PDF Expert or iAnnotate. Quick and easy. I am surprised some commenting that they wanted file management features or that the file was gone from izip once it was finished. These are good things, minimizing redundant storage on the iPad. Nicely done, keeping it simply. I have used unarchive lite previously and quickly deleted it when I found this one. Note sure why this program is free, when I would gladly pay .99 cents for it.
Good but 1 problem
After you will have to delete app and re-install app to get data storage space usage back. Keep an eye on space the app takes up and after use (after exit and file "gone"). Not too bad for working app but simple solution nowadays with a clear all / reset app setting or make it automatic (as already assumed but fails to). One star loss almost made it two. Just be prepared to delete app after use and install again before needed.
Love it, only one request
This is my fav for ease of opening zip/rar files. My only complaint is if the zip file has more than one item in it that needs to be opened individually, I have to go back to the original rar every time as new as the app doesn't save or remember the last opened file. This can be very time consuming and cumbersome. Still a great prog, clean interface and will continue to use.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
