Introduction

Today smartphones and tablets running Android provide a near complete substitution for desktop PC in functionality. One of the tools which arrived on the portable platform with its development into a full-fledged device is a zip utility.

Such an application is necessary for unpacking archives downloaded from the Internet and compressing multiple files for decreasing the space they occupy on a device or for an easier and faster file-transfer via emails or file-sharing services. This is where their functionality is essential and the possibility to extract the content of any archive is a must-have.
