Spurred by the growth of the Android OS and smart phones, ASTRO File Manager passes 10 million downloads

"...a year ago we were not even at 2 million and today we have over 10 million users"

ASTRO File Manager, the leading app for managing photos, documents, music and videos on Android smart phones and tablets, announced today ASTRO has exceeded 10 million downloads with an average of over 25,000 downloads per day.

A free app, ASTRO is by far the leading file and process management app on the Android Marketplace. There have been many enhancements to ASTRO over the last few months, including support for networking, Bluetooth, text searches and more.

“This is a huge milestone for ASTRO, since a year ago we were not even at 2 million and today we have over 10 million users” said Kevin Payne, founder and CEO of METAGO. “There are not many companies that have seen that kind of growth. Smart phones and tablets are so powerful and users expect to do more with these devices. Users need to do things such as cut, copy, paste and backup many different types of files – ASTRO makes it easy.”

“Android OS smart phones grew by 615% from Q4 of 2009 versus Q4 of 2010 and now own over 33% of the smart phone market”, said K Krueger, senior vice president of sales and marketing for METAGO. “This growth is staggering. With our key phone manufacturing partners, we expect to be at over 20 million users by the end of the year. One of the most exciting things we are working on is a powerful sync and backup service that is being built into ASTRO. It will differ from all other backup solutions on the market.”
