iUnarchive is a (cloud) file and archive manager.

Supported archives include zip, rar, 7-zip, tar, gzip, bz2/BZip2, LhA and StuffIt, including password support for zip, rar en 7-zip files. Parts of a multi part RAR archive have to be downloaded to My Files before opening.

When in 'edit' mode, the following options are available in My Files:

- Move (to another folder in My Files)
- Create Archive (zip or 7z, optionally with password)
- Rename (if one file is selected)

iUnarchive is an extension to other Apps like Mail, Safari and iWork. 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 Apps or sent by email from within iUnarchive.

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.

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.
