In case you weren’t following Joe Belfiore’s AMA on reddit, he just dropped a bombshell of wonderful news to all WP users. A full fledged file manager is on the way! Here’s what it will look like:
According to Joe he’s had it up and running on one of his phones for a couple weeks new, and hopefully it should be released before the end of the month! Wohoo for progress! Apparently though the file manager will run as an app from the store, and not be part of a system upgrade; but who cares as long as it’s fully functional right?
*** YES *** We are doing a File Manager for WP8.1! I know a LOT of you are looking for this (thanks for the tweets, I’ve read them all). In fact, I’ve been running a build of it on two of my phones for the last week or so and it’s getting to pretty good shape.
Here’s what it looks like: http://imgur.com/a/hvqGD#nRuOFXp
So yeah that’s happening! Yay!
(we’ll post a separate article rounding up the AMA once it’s done, but for now this is breaking news)
