    I'm coming from a Samsung Captivate. It had a folder called My Files which let me view everything on my sd card. Is there anything like that for HTC Inspire? How can we see what's on our sd card besides hooking it up to a pc?

    Thanks

    I would also like to know this as I will be coming from a Captivate and currently test running the Inpsire. Still deciding however but what you're saying is that you can only have this app/folder if you dwnld astro file explorer?

    Also, does it have a memo pad like the Captivate did or would you need to install an app for it?

    TiA :)

    No memo pad; but there are a million* note taking apps out there.
    I use AK Notepad. Very simple, and no ads.

    (* ok, not really 1 million...)

    No you dont have to have the app the have the folder, but you do need a file explorer to see it. It makes it easier to use it.

    I searched "file explorer" in the Market on my Inspire, and 639 results came up. Can anyone share what they think is the best file explorer app? I just want to be able to view what's on my SD Card without hooking it up to the computer. Some are free, and some you have to pay for. Would buying a file explorer app mean it's safer, less buggy, and more reliable?

    No, paid apps don't neccesarily mean "safer" or more "secure".

    I haven't dwnlded one yet but above he was saying Astro file explorer but when searched in the market it comes up as astro file manager. I'm too leary yet to dwnld so you do it first :p
