Hi Olaf,

> But no luck so far.

Hmm, too bad!

For me it worked without problems in both ways (via "Downloads" as well as
'termux-share'). How is the experience of others here?

That should be enough ;)

Strange. The PilBox App should register itself as a candidate for ZIP archives,
due to the line

   <data android:scheme="content" android:mimeType="application/zip" />

in the AndroidManifest.xml file. I don't know what else I could do.

Hmm, perhaps you can take a look into the log file. There should be an error
message. PilBox always keeps the current and previous log file, so you could do

   $ cat log

or, if you meanwhile started a new PilBox session,

   $ cat log-

Right, it needs at least 5.0

This is correct. The Download App does not pass the name but a number, so PilBox
never sees "hello.zip". 'termux-share' does.

This is the reason why I prepended "PIL-" to the names instead of simply looking
for "*.zip".
