ASTRO File Manager™ Reveals Tremendous Growth With 20 Million Users From the Android Market

Metago's ASTRO File Manager™ Continues to Show Electric Growth and Market Share With Its Industry Leading Mobile Productivity Software

MARIETTA, GA--(Marketwire - Dec 19, 2011) - Metago Incorporated, creators of ASTRO File Manager™, the leading productivity application vendor for Android mobile devices, today announced that ASTRO File Manager has exceeded 20 million installs from the Android Marketplace alone; currently averaging over 50,000 downloads per day.

"As content on mobile devices such as pictures, music, and documents increase, we are transforming the way users manage and protect that content," said Kevin Payne, founder and chief executive officer of Metago. "Our user growth curve is outstanding. In January of 2010 we had five-hundred thousand users. Less than two years later we are at over 20 million and this does not include other app stores or our OEM partner's preloads which takes us close to 25 million. With our customer-first focus and new cloud services, I believe we could be at 50 million installs this time next year."

ASTRO gives users the ability to manage files on their phones or tablets. It's like using Windows Explorer or Finder for your mobile. The core components let you organize your files and directories, network with other devices via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or SFTP, and better manage the applications and processes on your mobile. The cloud backup service for ASTRO is currently in beta, allowing users one-click backup of their files to the cloud. Users can sign up for a free account at

"Every decision we make at Metago begins by considering how it will impact our users," said Kent Krueger, vice president of sales, marketing and customer experience of Metago. "The ASTRO user experience is why our customers are so vocal. They love it. The last two years we spent very little on marketing and yet have over 50,000 downloads per day and 25 million installs worldwide. That only comes with dedicated users who love to talk about ASTRO. I know that the only way we'll keep them is if we show the same type of loyalty enhancing our products."

"We are fully committed to ASTRO and the sky is the limit, literally, as we launch our first cloud-based service in a matter of weeks," says Payne. "Backing up files to the cloud will never have been so easy. Wait and see."
