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...
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.
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.
New update works great! The problem referenced below is fixed. Thanks for Astro for the best file manager app. Great job! Five stars. This app was my favorite file manager! I used it often to write and read from Dropbox. Well, it doesn't WORK ANYMORE! It attempts to write a file but only transfers 13 bytes "Astro Manager". Dropbox website confirms full authorization for Dropbox access. Is the problem with Dropbox or Astro?
It would be nice to zip files on external storage without you writing to the internal storage and hiding it! Zipping 7.5 GB of data on the SD card, 10 minutes later I get an exception error and kilobytes free on the internal. This is from having 5.5 GB free on the internal.
Bug fixes and performance improvements. The option to set your default start location will return in our next release.
