Zip ANE (Android+iOS)

Zip ANE will un/zip very big zip archives super fast by using native process in threads supporting both Android and iOS without making any lag on your flash app. You will have listeners to watch the process. You have the option to cancel the zip progress. It’s job is to concentrate on zip archiving and it does it in the best possible way! We have tested with huge archives up to ~1GB and it does the job super fast with no lag.

In AS3, there are many different zip libraries which will do a similar thing but they are not good enough when it comes to mobile usage because of the following reasons:

  • • They load the whole zip into run-time and then try to zip/unzip reading bytes which is too time consuming
  • • Loading a big zip file using AS3 libraries will fail on mobile devices because it takes too much RAM
  • • The bottom line is that AS3 libs for handling zip files are TOO slow and not practical


Using this air native extension will solve all the above problems. you will be amazed how fast Zip ANE works no matter the size of the zip file.
