Microsoft releases official File Manager app for Windows Phone 8.1 devices

In a recent announcement, software giant Microsoft has revealed that it has officially rolled out File Manager app for Windows Phone 8.1 devices.

The inclusion of File Manager for Windows Phone 8.1 devices was rumored during the development of the software, but the app was missing when Windows Phone 8.1 was launched. The reason behind the omission apparently was that Microsoft intended to launch the File Manager app separately. And, it has now announced the availability of the app.

According to the announcement made by Microsoft, the 'free' File Manager app is now available via the Windows Phone Store. Users of Windows Phone 8.1 devices can also send the app straight to their devices from a download link.

The File Manager - which is also called Files in the Store - essentially gives the users of Windows Phone 8.1 devices the ability to locally arrange files on their device's storage, either on the internal drive or on an SD Card.

Since the File Manager app for Windows 8.1 devices is essentially a File Manager, users can expect the app to come with all the bells and whistles supported by a file manager. The app will enable the users to move, rename, copy and paste files, as well as create folders and benefit from some other handy features.
