Any computer user, whether on a Windows PC, Linux or Mac, always makes sure that he has a decent compression tool. It doesn't matter which one; the only important thing is to be capable of opening and generating compressed files in at least two of the most extended formats: ZIP and RAR.
And since these formats are used in many situations, it's also convenient to have a compression application to work with them on Android smartphones and tablets. And that's what this RAR for Android is, an APK that allows us to open and create compressed files with the guarantee of being able to work with them on any other mobile device or computer.
A simple, easy-to-use and fast compressor
This compressed file opener comes along with a really simple interface and very clear options that allow any user to open and compressed files in a matter of seconds. By means of its file explorer, we can navigate through the folders of our mobile device and add any file or document to be compressed or select any compressed file to be extracted.
A must-have tool to work with files on our smartphone.
One of the main advantages of this RAR app for Android is that it isn't limited to this format and neither to ZIP, as it goes a step further and allows us to work with other extensions that aren't so common. These are the main features of this compression tool:
- Creation of compressed files in RAR and ZIP format.
- Unpack compressed files in RAR, ZIP, TAR, GZ, BZ2, XZ, 7z, ISO and ARJ format.
- Repair damaged files in ZIP and RAR format.
- Use several cores for data compression.
- Encryption of compressed files.
As you can see, it's not limited to compressing and extracting as it also comes along with dedicated repair functions, without forgetting about those that have been conceived to offer us greater security and privacy regarding the information we work with.
