“Fast and efficient zip file viewer on iPhones and iPads.”
“Perfect companion for iPad in business …”
“Highly integrated native iOS app”
“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.

Zip Viewer

After looking at all the options and reviews for zip files, I came down on the side of Zip Viewer and I am so pleased I did.
I have had no problems - thus far, it is working extremely well. The strip of advertisements that sometimes runs along the top of viewer I find unobtrusive.
Admittedly, I am using the viewer to listen to a lot of spoken downloaded files, but it works for me.

Killed by the update.

Was pretty good. I had downloaded some files from a website that recommended the app. All was going well, I would open the app, select the file and crack on. Then the update...... now when I open it, there’s a third of the page taken up by file lists and ads, and then the frequent pop up ads that weren’t there before. I am gutted, as I had paid for the files, and now they are a pain to use. I’ll be looking for a new one and deleting this as soon as I can get the files transferred over.
