The good news just keeps on coming for Windows Phone users. After the launch of the feature packed Windows Phone 8.1 update, Microsoft has announced that it is has been busy developing a file manager for the operating system and could release it for users within the month itself. During a Reddit "Ask me anything" session Vice President and Manager for Windows Phone Program Management at Microsoft, Joe Belfiore said that the Windows Phone team is busy finalising a file manager for Windows Phone. He admitted that they have been working on this for a long time but instead of announcing its existence on his Twitter page he waited for this Reddit session to surprise the fans. He was also generous enough to post a few screenshots of the file manager.
As you can see from above the file manager has got the same Modern-UI look and a minimalistic design. It allows you to look into files in the phone’s internal storage as well as the SD card. If you note closely you can see that Microsoft has added the file count of every folder in its corresponding icon. Like every other file manager you can create new folders, move folders and files from one folder to another and even from phone to SD card. It also gives you a nifty file search function to help you get to your desired files faster. When it comes to the app’s performance, Belfiore says that he has been using the app for a week and is quite happy the way it is working. We would like to inform you that the app will be available on the Windows Phone Store and not be built into the OS.
