Official Windows Phone file manager delayed to June, to be called 'Files'

A file manager has been one of the most-requested features for Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system, and the company will appease those calls with the release of an official app next month.

According to a post from a company official on Microsoft's Windows Phone feature suggestions page, the app will be called "Files" and will be available as a download from the Windows Phone Store in June. Microsoft's Joe Belfiore, the leader of the Windows Phone team, previously stated the app would arrive in late May.

The inclusion of Files in the Windows Phone Store means it likely won't come pre-loaded on devices unless vendors choose to add it. According to screenshots released by Belfiore, the app will allow users to create subfolders within the operating system and search for specific documents within folders. Users will also be able to move files from a phone to an SD card with the app.
