New in v1.1.0: Now you can open archives directly from e-mails and other apps!

Features:
• Extracts almost all archive formats (e.g. ZIP, RAR, 7z, tar, gzip, bzip2, iso and many more!)
• Compresses and archives files and folders (ZIP, 7z, tar, gzip, bzip2)
• Works with split archives
• Supports password-protected archives
• Open archives directly from e-mails and other apps
• Option to e-mail the archive after creating it
• Uses a smart multi-select feature to perform actions on multiple files/folders
• Sort the file list by name, type, size or modification date
• Power scroll gesture to reach the top/bottom of a file list
• ...and much more!

or search for "Archive Manager" in the App Catalog

Here's the problem: that's against HP developer program policy.

And that's the policy that killed webOS.

Kalemsoft can do that, and why other developers can't do that?
If we care much about WebOS, why not try to negotiate with HP people. If they still not agreed, I think Preware need to become the other app catalog, but using donate beside sell the app.

For non supported country using virtual cc really annoying. If it can't work anymore, how we can buy that app? We have money, we have intention to buy, but yet we meet dead end. And then we forced to go to underground website to use "illegal" stuff. And I'm sure It is not looks good for being webOS developers. We are in a niche market, why we don't find another route to fix what Palm and HP's mistake that make webOS like this.

I'm trying to use this app for the flixter on touchpad patch that downloads as a .zip there is no mention of a password or key in the thread so .....is there a generic default?

If the archive you want to extract is password-protected, that's where you have to enter the password.

Just leave the field empty then.

Great app, really great.
Much easier than the way that I practiced before - manual operations using p7zip utility via SDLTerminal.

My suggestions for functionality:
- To add something like "extract here" option.
For example i have file 'asd.txt' inside archive 'bsd.7z'. After extraction i get folder 'bsd' with file 'asd.txt' inside. If i have file 'asd.txt' inside folder 'bsd' inside archive 'csd.7z' - after extraction i get folder 'csd' with folder 'bsd' inside with file 'asd.txt' inside. So, now extraction process always create folder with name of archive's name first and place archive's content to it folder. It's good, but it will be also not bad to have option to not to create such folder.

My suggestions for visual appearance:
- To add Dark theme (with folders/files icons like in Internals app).

Also, need to check more of operations with "non-english" characters in files/folders names (Japanese, Cyrillic, etc). Will post results later.

What I may implement in the future: If there's only one file in the root folder of the archive it will not be put it in an extra folder.

Not sure if there are many people who'd use it.

Would be nice if you could post an example archive if there are issues.
And if the characters are not supported by webOS' font there's nothing I can really do about this, but it's possible that I'm just messing up encodings.

Thanks for your feedback!

Anyone who would like to beta-test the next version, please e-mail me at 0188801@gmail.com
It includes the ability to open archives from other apps (e.g. browser, email etc.).

Edit: Only works if you already got Archive Manager from the App Catalog

Still looking for some beta testers for the update... Only got feedback from one person so far.
If I don't get more feedback, I might not release it at all.

See the post before for more information.
