Compress all your files and don’t ever worry again about having to send your files separately.

RAR is an app that works as an easy and quick compression program so you can enjoy a fully original, free and simple service without having to worry about their size. The app not only works as a compression program, but it also serves as an archiver, assistant, manager, extractor or even  a simple file searcher.

With RAR you can also unpack or unzip compressed folders, so you can have access to all the files people send you. The app supports RAR and ZIP to compress and RAR, ZIP, GZ, BZ2, XZ, ISO and ARJ to unpack archives. This means you can also use this app to repair damaged ZIP and RAR files due to its recovery records and comes built with encryption features, solid archives, usual and recovery volumes and multiple CPU to compress different data.

Besides, RAR allows you to unzip ZIP and ZIPX files, which come with BZIP2, LZMA, PPMd and XZ compressions, all under the protection of a password of your choice. This version includes an unrar command for RAR archives which also include password protection and multipart files.

The app is entirely free, however you can expect paid advertising to popup occasionally. We do this so we can support the app without having to sell it to our users and are able to offer it for free. If you don’t like the ads, you can go to the app’s settings to turn them off and you won’t be bothered again.

Lastly, if you would like to help us translate RAR to your language, please download the app now and head out to “RAR extras” on the menu and follow the instructions. 

App ChangeLog

  • 1. More secure AES-256 is used instead of Zip 2.0 legacy encryption when creating encrypted ZIP archives.
    2. Added support for Unix extended timestamp extra fields in ZIP archives. RAR can extract UTC time stored in such fields.
    3. RAR failed to unpack files in ZIP archives compressed with XZ algorithm and encrypted with AES. Fixed now.
    4. When tapping on checkboxes in file list, the animation circle was displayed at wrong position in Android 6.0+. Fixed now.

  1. William Sherif-avatar

    A good app that offers passworded archiving. 5 stars because it does what I need without problems. Some things to improve: - MULTISELECT is very slow (no drag select/range select) - "Sort by date" should be by tapping top bar somewhere but is hidden in "⋮ / Settings / Sort file list" - Thumbnails not shown by default (thought it could not display thumbnails) - The ≡ / ↑ (menu, arrow up) icon is redundant since "Up one level" is displayed in the main view all the time

    This is an amazingly awesome app. You'll NEVER need another rar extractor/file organizer ..EVER! Seriously top notch app here. Good job fellas. 1* Rating is because even though I have the paid subscription to get rid of ads, it still plays ads and I can even purchase the subscription again. Google shows my subscription is active. This needs to be fixed. Rating will go to 5 stars as soon as it is fixed.

  3. Warp9pnt9-avatar

    A really crappy user experience. Poorly designed user interface. Very bad support for multi-part archives. In every regard, desktop app 7-Zip is superior. I'll maybe just port that to Android instead. To hell with this app. Once upon a time, I actually paid for a desktop WinRAR license.

  4. mind alien-avatar

    the option to check + repair archives is so useful, I don't want to miss it. and the rar app has a blazing fast performance, so the workflow is very convenient & feels light as a feather even with large archives + files.

  5. Jet Asura-avatar

    thank you, but please fix you sorting , ex. by name should be 1,2,3,4,5 instead of 1,11,12,13,2,20,21,3,30,31

  6. Ashley Dillon-avatar

    This app makes no sense. I was told if I deleted my Facebook that I would be able to see my Facebook photos and videos on this app after permanently deleting my Facebook. I have yet to figure out how to view anything from the social media apps I permanently deleted with promises of accessing my pictures and videos from this app afterwards.

  7. N TECH with M-avatar

    Seek error in file /storage/9016-4EF8/monitor/Win10_1909_English_x64.zip • Invalid argument

  8. a boy-avatar

    Can't extract a 1GB archive on a phone with 6GB free storage. Error messages are not clear so you can't do any technical troubleshooting (what should "try again" or "function not implemented" mean?).

  9. Parsi Pax-avatar

    The repair function works really well just like the PC version. Saved me from going to my laptop lol.

  10. M. M TBD-avatar

    It is a good program on Windows, and has great dark mode UI, but not extracting zip files on my Xiaomi MIUI phone. Edit: working now, after SD card was re-sitted.

  11. Mariel Flores-avatar

    Previously it sent. But now no files can be sent. Also my friend can't send her files. Why is that?

  12. Howard Lyttle-avatar

    Best archive file app for android easy to archive files to protect your data and save storage space. No adds.

  13. Abdullah K-avatar

    Can't extract a 1GB archive file with over 50 GB free.This app keeps crash this app is useless.

  14. Diego T-avatar

    WinRAR is a top notch app. During years I tried all alternatives but never found a good replacement.

  15. Austin Fennell-avatar

    Piece trash extracted the files somewhere in my phone I cannot reach now my storage is full with no way to fix it do yourself a favor download a different app to extract files...

  16. Ebenezer Isaac-avatar

    GUI is ancient. Its for the people still stuck in the 90's

  17. Dmitry K-avatar

    1. No external storage support. 2. Can't unpack .ISO archives.

  18. Dustin Moretz-avatar

    Always used WinRAR on PC, glad it's out for Android now, only downfall is the ads.

  19. Bijay Debnath-avatar

    Everything is good with this app... But should have supported USB devices..

  20. BedTime-avatar

    Unable to copy and paste password for extracting. Total waste of time.

    Miss some features from Deskop version, could be sightly better.

  22. Klaus Forster-avatar

    does fulfill its basic functionality, but the userinterface is 😱😭😠

  23. Dev Oper-avatar

    I've been trying it a few weeks, mainly just to check and extract RARs. A big problem is the full-screen pop-up ads are very intrusive, unidentified, and their close buttons often don't work well, or at all. One time, a quick tap on one (tiny 'x' in top left of full screen ad) opened a browser with two new tabs, both to the domain ads.doubleclick (large google-based ad system). Another time, although the button would highlight, I actually had to close the app to remove the ad. Annoying, no?

  24. AdmiralSnakbar2-avatar



    I love it, I use it for everything file related. At least on my phone, I don't really use my actual files app that comes with it because it's not as... good, I guess you could say. One thing I wish they would have though is a search feature, that would make everything so much easier so you can go straight to something and if you need to and extract it, like a zip file for instance. Other than that, it's a great app, easy to use, might be confusing at first but you'll get the hang of it!

    Good app archive in overal.. Same like in the PC, but for manage compress file/folder not available in setting and setting only have some feature, in folder information not show size in MB but in other, maybe in byte (ex. 27,257,460), very confusing to know how larger the size in that folder.

  27. sohail khan-avatar

    Very poor structure Need a lot of improvement

  28. Steven Green-avatar

    Unable to extract anything.

  29. Rito Kun-avatar

  31. Kei Pecaso-avatar

    Before I gave a 5 star now it's 3 because I can't send a video to messenger like before.

  32. Dilip Singh-avatar

    No substitute found. Best app. Thanks developers.

  33. Skarce Voxan-avatar

    An app that lets you repair a corrupted zip 😎😤 Imagine losing something only to be able too recover it lol

  34. Juanny Gavacho-avatar

    Does a great job. No issues or BS. Can't ask for anything a more than that

  35. Kiyo Takamine-avatar

    I am experiencing some issues. While it is able to decompress a .cbz file that is on my phone's internal storage, the moment I move that same .cbz file to the external storage, it says error while decompressing which shouldn't be the case as moving the file back to the internal storage seems to fix it. Also .cbz files that were on my phone's external storage from quite some time ago seems to not face the same problem. If there is any bug, please try to fix it. Thanks!

    This app was great! I was downloading a bunch of... and one of the files was in RAR format and not mp4 as it should have been. I was able to locate and convert the file in seconds. This was the first choice with a high rating. I even took out time to click on the advertisement. Thank you and now back to my...

  37. Mark B Jones-avatar

    Once an archive is created it seems impossible to add additional files. Only solution appears to be to create multiple archives. App is too complex for the average user like myself.

  38. Sena Walker-avatar

    To whom it may concern !! I will change it to five stars if someone can appoint me to something that shows me how to use it properly. Because every time I use Roar my computer I damaged the applications, launcher, Etc

  39. karthik R-avatar

    Most professional archiver. One of my most favorite app in all platforms. Purchased app to support developer ❤️

    Despite having minor flaws in the UI, downloading this app is a must for people wanting to organise their devices properly. Simple, effective & easy to use 🥰

  41. Hamed Azimi-avatar

    Perfect for compression or uncompress files Love it🙏😍👌💐

  42. John Doe-avatar

    The most reliable application for working with compressed (archived) files. Didn't failed me even once, while others did.

  43. Emre Kul-avatar

    App freezes occasionally and forces me to hard-restart my phone. This is a big issue as it makes everything else unusable, therefore I uninstalled it. Shame! It is otherwise a nice app.

  44. Nova Lurker-avatar

    Confusing app with no information on how to do anything. All i wanted to do was unzip a file, and either it doesn't do it or the option is impossible to find. I installed and uninstalled all within 15 minutes.

  45. Adeyemi Adenijo-avatar

    Does exactly what it's meant to do. Has some nifty little features to make extractions easy. Could use an option to use the same password for batch extractions though.

  46. Andrew Chung-avatar

    Always willing to pay for no ad version for good apps. But not when you can automatically deduct from my account the next year.

  47. Jkevin Volt-avatar

    Cool app, just what i wanted. I've been looking for an archiver that can extract password protected files. Its just the right one

  48. Nwoko Reinhard-avatar

    It's a dope app and so much easier to use.. Even more easier than ZArchiver Pro . Thanks for the great work on the app

  49. arked net-avatar

    Not a very intuitive interface for mobile

  50. Carrie Law-avatar

    It works for me and extracted the files. The only thing I didn't like is that the buttons are not exactly intuitive, but it is easy to figure out by trial-and-error

  51. Joseph Ferraro-avatar

    Very well done. One option I would like to have, is the ability to create new folders. But definitely not a deal breaker. So don't hesitate if you need a compression program. Hey there. That's greatly appreciated. Thanks for the quick reply. Keep up the great work. 😀

  52. mahdi hadad-avatar

    This app is amazing! Its not just for extract files change foramt with out damage files and copy them fast and open lock files with passcode

  56. Russ Haley-avatar

    Buggy privacy invader. Askes if you want to use a Google Ad ID, keeps looping you if you say no. Will not ever let you change it to no later. Sleezy process. Uninstalled. Bye!

  75. games pc-avatar

    Perfect to tool to unzip rar files zip folders and then you rezip them into either a rar or zip. So you unzip a rar file and rezip it as a zip folder and vice versa
