    just a question about moving files. can browse fine with astro but when i want to copy and paste things i cant get it to work. i can call up the "multi" tab in a directory and select an item that i want to move. i can click "copy" and highlight a file which turns orange. problem is when i go to the directory where i want to drop the file it does not move there.

    Have you tried holding down on an item, choose edit>copy, navigate to destination directory then choosing menu>edit>Paste...

    Probably a stupid question but are you also pressing "paste" when you get to the destination directory?

    +1. Much better than Astro.

    i was using the "multi" menu thinking that was what i needed as it had a copy and move option but no paste. i realise now that this is for multiple file actions.

    i did not "get" that the edit menu button was for copy paste etc and was worried i would do something to the file if i chose an option called "edit".

    everything is now perfectly clear. ta people.

    Really? must admit I've not tried it as i found all the functionality i needed in Astro...

    Does it have the SMB/Bluetooth functionality that comes with the free Astro plugins as well an APK backup tool and Package installer?

    It has four "Views": Local, LAN, FTP, and Bluetooth. It can also back up and install packages, as well as task killing (with a plugin). It will also let you 'bookmark' a file or folder by placing an icon for it in a spare location on one of your home screens, all from within the program.

    In my opinion, it's as good as Astro.

    I search for astro as some tutorials use it to install apps.

    However I can not install it!

    I do have es installed but that will not install the apps I am trying to install!.

    The phone keeps saying unsucessful. Does anyone know what might be wrong??
