What does a zip file mean?

A zip file is a file that contains contents that have been compressed for either transmission or storage purpose.

Usually, a zip file ends with a file extension name of “.zip”. and to extract such files, you will require an application called x-plore. This app has been a long-serving servant since the days of Symbian phones. It works just fine when called upon, see the guide below on how to extract a zipped image, document, music, video and some other files with the .zip file extension mark.

Here is how to extract files from a zipped file using Xplore below… Firstly credits to Loneycatsgames for building such an amazing app. I’ve been a great fan of Xplore since the days of Symbian phones, its was and will still be one of my favourite apps cause it does a whole lot of work for me.

You can use other apps to extract a zip file, not just Xplore. Es File Explorer is also a very good alternative to Xplore on Android.
