Hi i`m using freda on my smartphone with Windows 10 mobileĀ  for longer time (from windows phone 7.8 ) and it working good for me, i found only one minus it doesn`tĀ  open ZIP archives. I have one question will freda ever have support for ZIP archives ?
At the moment, Freda only supports ZIP archives to the extent that if you give it an FB2 file in a ZIP archive (extension: fb2.zip) it will do the right thing. As for other ZIP archives, Freda does not know how to open them. What are you thinking Freda should do if you give it a ZIP archive to open? What kind of file should it look for, and what should it do with it?

At the moment Freda does not see the archives of ZIP and fb2.zip does not see either. (on Windows 10 Mobile) I just want to open books what is in ZIP archives directly through freda without having to open them through the archiver program
I'm not supporting or updating the Windows 10 Mobile app any more (since Microsoft has deprecated that platform, I don't have any good way to maintain the app). So maybe the 'fb.zip' feature is not working on that version of Freda.

More generally, I do not think I should register Freda as an app for handling ZIP archives generally, because it would cause a lot of confusion (it would mean that Freda would show up on the system's list of available apps for 'Open With ...' for any ZIP archive, which is pretty misleading).
