    I just got a 10.5" iPad Pro and I am trying to mostly use it as a computer. My only snag so far has been with zip files. I need to know if there is an app that will extract an entire zip archive with lots of files in to any folder of my choice in iCloud Drive. So far I have not had any luck, and I am not going to buy a zip app unless I know it works.

    I did try workflow and I got close. It allows my to make a workflow to recursively go through and extract each file in the zip but only allows me to save it in the /Workflow/ folder in iCloud Drive unless I have it prompt me for each file. That would be fine if iCloud let me move the files out of the Workflow folder but it doesn't.

    Is there a way? If not, will there be in iOS 11?

    Same issue for me. iZip works, not great though. It will sure unzip stuff, but you can't batch export or batch move unzipped files and docs. It wants to recompress before moving. Forces you to move them one-by-one. Dont know if this will change in iOS 11. Hope it does.

    Documents will unzip zipped files. I just tested it to be sure.
