    as much as i love Astro with its app backup feature, after downloading a new weather widget i was prompted to download IO File Manager. This one has the ability to move files around, something that was seriously lacking in Astro.
    to be able to organize pictures, videos, or anything on the SD is extremely helpful as i also use my Eris to type my school papers :cool:

    just thought id share it with you all. hopefully it helps someone else like it did me.

    You can move files around in astro, you needed to select edit first.

    You can actually move files with Astro, it was a little hidden and sort of a pain. But it is doable. You go into the edit option, select a file, hit copy. Go to different directory and hit edit again, and paste. Thanks for the other app tip though :D. I'll check it out for sure.

    Files can be moved with Astro too. IMO a little clunky, but it can be done.
