This app has a serious bug. When moving files from internal memory to an SD card, the SD card is afterwards no longer readable by the Android operating system, as if it has been deleted. I was moving files from my download folder in internal memory to a folder with the same name on the SD card which was formatted for external file storage. The files are still there and I was able to retrieve them in a Windows op system via a memory card reader, but were no longer visible on my Android devices.

Great app! Useful for when I want to open 7z or RAR folders. But i have issues, sometimes when I'm opening a 7z folder, it'll say that there are no files selected, so i have to delete the app and try again. The full screen ads are strange though. Otherwize, amazing. Its user interface is easy to use, I never had a hard time looking for files. The downloading of extracted folders takes a long time, but you can press the background button to download them in the background. Also SD card support!

Does the job, compresses and decompresses without fuss or drama or ads in your face with every click. Yes, the interface is old school, directory structure based, not point and drool, but if you are looking for a tool like this, you should understand directory hierarchy. Yes, there are adverts, the occasional full screen obvious sort, not that nasty subtle sort trying to lure in misclicks. Overall, full of win!
