    Astro Beta

    Just received this email from Droid Life
    Astro File Manager Beta Ending?
    Posted: 28 Mar 2010 12:18 PM PDT
    Anyone else receive the unpleasant warning message from Astro File Manager this morning that I just got? You know, the one claiming that the beta version of the app is set to expire in 3 days? Huh? Yeah, that is not a good sign. And what’s even worse is the fact that Astro File Manager says [...]

    Not sure why that was a ridiculous post. I've never seen Astro expire. Nice friendly forum here.

    There certainly seems to be a lot of talk about Astro. Some are saying it's an April Fools joke. I love Astro, don't get me wrong, but a few days ago I discovered Root Explorer and I'm very happy with it now.

    with all this expiration talk i dumped astro and went totally to root explorer. there is really no reason to have 2 file managers anyway and we have to have root explorer. not to mention astro is huge

    its not expiring. its not gonna be a paid app.

    every version of astro has expired. once the update comes out it'll go for another 2-3 months and say beta expires 6/30 or whatever it'll be. but the uneducated can uninstall astro if they want, i couldnt care less. just know that nothing's changing once april comes around.

    How many versions of astro have you had that expired? I have had astro since November and none of them expired. Hope it's an April fools joke because I like the app backup feature.

    Guys, sorry I posted the darn thing. I registered with Droid Life last month and receive a daily email with links to articles on their site. Perhaps I'm missing something but I honesty thought Droid Life was a valid site that distributed accurate information.

    You didn't do anything wrong, Mike. The current version of Astro does indeed have a warning message that it will expire on 3/31. It may well be that the developers put out another "beta" version with a built-in timer at that point. Apparently, they have done so in the past, though I've had Astro since early December and haven't experienced it in the past. Furthermore, I just checked my wife's version (downloaded last week) and it has the same warning message.

    I would expect the developers at some point to begin charging for the app. It certainly merits a charge. We'll see.
