Windows Phone 8.1 Finally Gets Official File Manager – “Files”

Windows Phone 8.1 Finally Gets Official File Manager - "Files"


One more big surprise for windows phone users!! One of the main disadvantage in WP was solved. The official File Manager is out. Microsoft releases its file manager in the name File to the Windows Phone 8.1 users.

Files is a free app for managing all the files on Windows Phone. We learned about the app when Joe Belfiore did an AMA on Reddit earlier this month. It was announced for a May release, but we later leaned it would be called Files and coming in June. The name was right, however the app is now live for you to download not in June, but in May.  
Windows Phone 8.1 Finally Gets Official File Manager - "Files"
Here’s the set of features we get in this version 1.0 release:
  • Access files stored on your phone and SD card
  • Browse, search and launch files
  • Easily share one file or multiple files
  • Create folders to organize your files
  • Copy, move, rename and delete files
With Files you can access your phones documents, downloads, music, pictures, pictures and more. It doesn’t matter if it’s on your SD card or on you’re the internal phone storage, Files can handle it all. We’ve spent a few minutes playing around with Files and really like it. It’s basic, but gets the job done.
