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

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.

They just released the next beta. It is also free and ends in May.

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.
