Astro File manager is certainly an essential download for anyone with an android smartphone

Because our phones have a built in file manager like every smartphone should.

I actually find ES file explorer much more suitable for my taste. better UI, same or better tools. ow and ES lets you browse network share files too.

SwiftKey should be bought out by Google ASAP and be made the default keyboard for any Adroid phone.

It's the closest thing to typing on a touchscreen phone without looking. So fast.

I've converted many an Android user to Swiftkey X. Currently though I'm using Swiftkey 3 Beta, and it's even better.

I actually hate astro on my Note, I prefer stock file manager, its a lot less glitzy
