Please add multilingual support in next version. I'm sure many people would agree voluntarily to help with translation (using сrowdin and similar).

Please add a log out screen so it doesn't show notifications in all day long. Just turning off notification off does not solve the problem. Thanks

Astro is one of my favorite file managers. The issue with the pro key not being able to be seen in the market on a different device stinks. But as a test I tried transferring the apk from my htc mytouch3g to my samsung vibrant that I have astro running on as well. As a temporary fix it worked until I can download the key from the market to the vibrant directly.


Keep up the great work with astro.

A really handy feature for me would be the ability to create a plain text file, and use the built in editor to edit it.

I absolutely hate the new version. The design changed to heavy. Where is the good old classic view? How can I disable the new design to get the one I have payed for?

Can't get the application backup sort and delete buttons to work. And please bring back the option of directory choice for apparently backup.

The "scan local network" cant find all the computers that I want.

Would be nice if at "create a new location" option there were an option to enter an IP address.

Move it sd card will help a lot already the ram is low and while trying to run Astro it just crashes it would be good if you enable that option

Love Astro, but since the big update a month or so ago the Application Manager > Backed Up Apps > Delete doesn't do anything. I can delete the older app copies by going directly to the Folder folder, but ...

The "confirm" of the file delete menu in the italian translate is wrong. Actual rev. Is CANCELLA - CANCELLA. Please correct: CANCELLA - OK Thanks!

Please add a checkbox to tell the program to overwrite (or to skip) all existing files in the destination folder when copying or moving files just like any desktop os should do.

Thank you!

I like Astro and use it for a while but since the last update opening folders and files are very slow and there is a lot of hang out.
It seems that some others users note the same troubles.
For information, I use an Asus Transformer tf 101 with androide 4.0

Agree with "jcb9514 ." It's frustrating how slow and sirupy it has become. I don't have the latest fashionable phone (HTC Desire S, Android 2.3.5), but still, I'd expect something that worked better. I'm using OI Explorer ("Open Intent", which is open source) although it's not as rich in features. The file browsing at least is immensely faster.
