Download The Official File Manager App For Windows Phone

reminiscences of a stock operator pdf

Smartphones today are much like handheld computers with which we can perform almost any task that we can on our computer. However, when it comes to file systems and directory structures on mobile devices, some operating systems hide them (like Apple), while others don’t mind revealing the inner file and folder structures (like Android).

People have different opinions on this subject. Android users love the way the OS allows them to use a file manager, while Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has always made the file system hidden with no way to use any file manager apps. But what about the Windows Phone operating system? Thankfully, there’s good news for Windows Phone users.

File Manager app for Windows Phone 8.1

Up until now, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) had taken the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) approach, which means there was no file manager app. Joe Belfiore announced earlier this month during a Reddit AMA that the company would release an official file manager app for Windows Phone platform. True to its promise, Microsoft has released the “Files” app, which is a file manager app for Windows Phone users. A post on Windows Phone blog confirms the release of this app.

As you might have guessed, this app allows you to access files and folders stored on your phone and SD card. You can browse, search and share files. You can also perform basic operations like creating a folder, copy, move, rename and delete files. The app allows you to open files directly from the file manager, which is definitely a very convenient way to open a file.

Microsoft has decided to go the Android way with this new file manager app.  The app, however, requires Windows Phone 8.1 and that will certainly be a disappointment for those with older operating sustems.

You can find the app by searching for it on the Windows Phone store. Here’s the direct link for the app.
