    Just got a message that astro beta was going to expire in 3 days. I uninstalled it and reinstalled and now it will expire march 31st. Is there any way for it to not expire?

    Where did the message come from? (Pop up, email, etc.)

    Astro is constantly updating so perhaps you haven't been updating? That's the only thing I can think of.

    In the description on the marketplace it does say beta ends 3/31. Well you have two options- pay for it when it is released or download a different browser/manager, there are some other free ones with high ratings.

    I kinda like the stock gallery but I also have B&B Gallery installed, the free one has ads so you might want to try it then buy it.

    I got the same message because I ignored an update a couple days ago. I went into the market place and downloaded the update, and the message went away. You didn't have to uninstall.

    The update is really nice, they are working hard to make it a great file manager, as of yesterday i dont think i would of purchased it if the beta had expired, i would of found something similar. Now after the update and letting us beta test it another 60 days I think it will be worth the purchase price if $5.00 or under.

    Yeah it really just depends on the price for me, if it's on the cheaper side.. as you said prolly 5 and under, then i'll most likely get it. Anything higher then that, and i might just go find a new one.

    I saw this as well...but at 5:30 in the morning, I didn't think much of it. Where can I see if I'm on the beta version or one that won't expire?

    When I heard the announcement that this app was going to a paid version, I didn't bother waiting to hear a price to find a new file manager. There are too many out there that do the job for free.
