    I noticed that my the ASTRO Beta version is gonna expire on the 31st so I was just wondering if anybody can give me some suggestions on what app I should get for file managing and to backup all my apps? Free is good :) but i dont mind paying for it

    I'm in the same boat. Titanium backup is AWESOME. I was more than happy to donate for the full version. As for a task manager, Estrongs seems to get good reviews.

    no problem...i see you're rooted so you really need "root explorer" it's a few bucks but well worth it. i might just ditch astro and file go because as far as i can tell root explorer does everything the others do plus go into the root folder...with maybe the exception of backing up but i'm a solid titanium user for backups.

    Argghhh....I just checked my version of Astro and found that, yup, it expires in three days. I can only assume (hope, pray) that the developer makes a paid version available in the next few days. I'm too old to adjust to another file manager. :mad:

    I will also throw out there my HUGE support for Titanium Backup (paid version). I switch ROM's about as much as I switch underwear...well almost. Titanium is flawless and restores every time. If someone gets T.B. premium, every couple of days I got to my SD card and delete the TB folder and do a fresh backup. Just a hint.

    Stated by who? You can't take stuff posted by a random forum person who was just guessing and then pass it off as a fact. If it's an April Fools joke, it's a pointless one.

    Estrongs all the way. When paired with the Estrongs task manager, it is perfect.

    its not an april fools joke. it just "expires" every couple months. probably to help them note how many people have downloaded the app. its not changing to paid, nothings changing at all. theres just gonna be an update and it's gonna change to beta expires 6/30 or whenever...everybody calm down.

    Actually, it is a beta. It's sort of like most Google products, it seems to be in a perpetual beta form. It just doesn't happen to be numbered like a typical beta would be. Maybe this is just their way of telling us that they're constantly committed to keeping it updated.

    One thing's for sure - at least they're on point with release date promises - they promised an update before tomorrow, AND now we've got it! :icon_ banana:
