Editors' Review

RAR for Android is a helpful application that enables you to easily compress a variety of file types as well as navigate your phone's memory. The broad range of support file types that can be opened via this application makes it much more useful than for ordinary file compression.


Extensive support: We easily created RAR and ZIP files on our phone that opened smoothly on our computer as well. The ability to open other file types, such as ISO and BZ2, is a great tool to have on your mobile device, and we observed no flaws in opening any of the supported file types.

Straightforward arrangement: RAR for Android is intuitive and easy to use. The limited number of buttons and tools on the screen assists in finding and selecting files, and both the light and dark design themes present text easily with their high-contrast schemes.

Fast performance: Packing and unpacking data took only a few seconds, regardless of file size or type, for most of our tests. Large files, such as our camera's photo gallery, took about one minute to compress approximately 200 images.


Unexceptional navigation: We were unsatisfied with RAR for Android's navigation tool because after pressing the back button, it always jumps to the first item in a list and not where we were before. This is a small but annoying feature.

Bottom Line

RAR for Android truly exceeds our expectations and gives you more control over your mobile phone. Overall, this is a great tool for your phone, so we recommend you download RAR for Android.
