Archivers for Chromebooks, iPad, Kindle and Android tablets. How to extract and pack files easily

File archives are an important part of our workflows. They are convenient to download and forward. They are compact and lightweight. There is no better way put together a bunch of files and make sure that they are treated as a whole.

Every once in a while all of us have to deal with a zipped file. Unlike Windows or Mac, which have built-in functions to open and create file archives, on other platforms tools for convenient management of archives are often lacking. For example, on Chromebooks when you open .zip file it mounts like an external drive and there is no clear interface for extracting zipped files. Creating archives is even more complicated.

There are many powerful archive management applications for established desktop platforms. Unfortunately, out-of-the-box they are not available on new platforms and devices like Chromebooks and tablets. rollApp solves that problem by offering full-featured cloud version of great archive managers: PeaZip and File Roller.
