GoodReader for iPad adds RAR, public-key SFTP support


Good.iWare has released an update to its GoodReader for iPad app adding support for decompressing RAR archives and improving security for SFTP connections with public key authentication. The latest update now allows users to open RAR archives, including multi-volume archives, from directly within GoodReader and allows a public key to be specified for authentication to SFTP server as an alternative to traditional password authentication. Additional new features include the ability to disable the Downloads folder, the return of the textured background for PDF files and a fix for problems opening certain types of very large ZIP archives. GoodReader for iPad 3.11 is available from the App Store for $5.
