I used to love this app it had so many features that were easy to use and find. It also used to have color changes for files. It would unzip and move as well as allowed exchanges between all my clouds and facebook, dropbox etc... It still has some great features like the app manager but so much is missing or if these options do still exist then they have become too hard to figure out
Well designed, easy to navigate. I do have a suggestion however. Would the developers of this app consider adding video and music streaming functionality to the app. I'm able to connect to networked home server file shares to access music and videos. When I click on the video or mp3, it downloads the file before playing instead of streaming the file. All the streaming apps in the play store that I've tried so far don't connect to a network server as well as what Astro file manager does...
Easy to use file manager. But ... the most recent update Version 6.0.5 had an update to its appearance. There was an addition to the home state called RECENT. I don't like the fact that there isn't a way to hide that or be able to clear the recents. Changed my recommendation from 5 to 3 stars. If that gets a work over I may love it again.
Very helpful and versatile. I will admit though that some additional support for moving and managing large numbers of files would be helpful. I use the app to move pictures off of my phone and onto my NAS in the hundreds. So one photo having a name duplicate because its stored in a few different places on my phone but everything shows up in one place once I search for all pictures on my phone. Some sort of "save all conflicting files until the end" option would be an incredible feature. Or at the very least a "skip all conflicting files" checkbox.
I liked the app, but they're demanding access to my contacts. I emailed help asking why, but received no response. I don't understand why a file manager needs my contacts. I'm uninstalling. Received feedback stating they needed contact access to access Google drive. I confirmed this requirement with another file manager. Astro should note this is the reason for their access request. I used this program for several years and found it met all my needs. Although I've switched to another program, I recommend it.
EXCELLENT I was looking for an app to move/transfer my photos, which there are over 30000 on my cell phone, to my SD card but after so many different tries with other apps with no luck I remembered that I had this application on my cell phone from years ago and gave it a try... Not only can I remove a single folder with its entire contents But I can select multiple folders and transfer the entirety onto the SD card with one click. Not only does this app move photos from the phone To the SD card it does a dozen other features that simple photo swapping apps do not do. And best of all this is the FREE version that I am using. I am strongly investing in the paid version just because it helped me move over 8GB of photos in a very short period of time.
Bug fixes and performance improvements. The option to set your default start location will return in our next release.
