    Not sure what to think

    Their site shows no indication of a problem

    Could be just a forewarning before a new version comes out

    So does this mean we have to buy it now?

    That's what I'm afraid of. I think if they did choose to charge for it, I'd happily pay up (providing it's reasonably priced). ASTRO has to be one of the apps I use the most on my phone.

    I have emailed the dev a couple of times and gotten no response.

    Same here, I use it all the time.

    I'd have to second that. I think Astro's file manager is a great utility. Becoming a paid app is pretty reasonable considering what they give us.

    It wasn't on their webpage directly, but I followed the twitter link and found this:

    How did you take a screenshot? I see a little camera symbol in your notifications bar...is that an app I can download without rooting? Thanks

    no. you gotta root to do screen shots. Or use a home replacement app. I think it's dxtop (???)

    the developer reminds me of a drug dealer, "the first time's free." -- gets ya' hooked and them.... BAM! pay up! Well, I'm hooked, I'll pay.

    Metago has always done this. It keeps people from using older versions and reporting bugs that have been fixed.
