iUnarchive is an extension to other Apps like Mail, Safari and iWork. To open an attachment on the iPhone, you have to tap and hold the attached file's name until a menu comes up. Then choose 'Open in' and/or iUnarchive. Archives received or downloaded can be opened in iUnarchive with the 'Open in...' option. Files in the archive can be previewed and opened in other applications or sent by email from within iUnarchive.
Supported archives include zip, rar, 7-zip, tar, gzip, bz2/BZip2, LhA and StuffIt.
If an archive contains another archive, you can click on the nested archive and iUnarchive will open the nested archive.
File types that can be previewed in iUnarchive include JPG, PNG, GIF, XLS, DOC, PPT, PDF, RTF and iWork (Pages, Numbers and Keynote) files, but also a large number of text files and programming language source files which use syntax highlighting. Supported types include c, h, cpp, hpp, cs, html, css, js, java, php, py, rb, sql, xml, xsl and wsdl.
You receive an email message with a password protected ZIP or RAR attachment containing a Word document. Clicking on the attachment in Mail shows an option to launch iUnarchive. Once launched, iUnarchive asks you for the password and shows a list of files. When you select the Word document, iUnarchive shows you a preview of the document and allows you to open the document in Pages on the iPad.
Files can be uploaded and downloaded with the following Cloud services:
* Mobile Me iDisk
* Box (.net)
* Google Docs (non-premier accounts cannot upload all file types)
(Large) Attachments are directly accessible from within iUnarchive for the following Mail Services:
* Mobile Me
* Yahoo! (uses the Yahoo! API)
* Hotmail (POP3, so no folders)
Files can also be downloaded from the Web using a Mobile Safari user interface.
