AndroZip File Manager
Allows the user to unzip encrypted ZIP files
AndroZip File Manager is an Android file manager and compression tool.
You can use AndroZip File Manager as a standalone tool to compress and decompress archives. You can also use it to manage your files and apps locally or across devices and storages. AndroZip is perhaps at its best when you take advantage of the marriage of these two focuses. The app provides a great way to maximize your available storage space, and compression and decompression are fast enough on modern devices that you can have just about everything archived.
Another way AndroZip distinguishes itself is through broad compression format support. Most Android file manages support ZIP and perhaps RAR. This app supports those as well as BZIP2, GZIP, TAR and a host of other compression formats. Most users will probably only ever use ZIP and RAR, but this broad support is incredibly useful for users who work in environments where other formats are prevalent.
Something else that AndroZip does really well is integrate all of its features from within its own user interface. If you extract a folder’s contents, for example, you’ll have access to those files right away and from right there within the app. This is the kind of convenience Windows Explorer, for instance, provides but most Android file explorers do not.
The user interface is configured for traditional phones and doesn’t take advantage of large screens. The aesthetic and organization seems a bit outdated as well. The UI isn’t the only area AndroZip File Manager lacks polish. It also has some bugs and can freeze up and crash during basic operations. These issues aren’t necessarily frequent but can be extremely frustrating nonetheless.

Potentially dangerous permissions
- READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
- WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.
- ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
- GET_TASKS: This constant was deprecated in API level 21. No longer enforced.
- INSTALL_SHORTCUT: Allows an application to install a shortcut in Launcher.
- INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
- RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
- RESTART_PACKAGES: This constant was deprecated in API level 8. The restartPackage(String) API is no longer supported.
- WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
