WOO HOO! SOMEONE ASKED THIS QUESTION!! I’ve been waiting! in fact, I’ve avoided tweeting on this very topic just for all you redditors. Seriously.

in fact– you GET A CORTANA T-SHIRT FOR ASKING!! 🙂 (PM me your size and we’ll get it to you.)

*** 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.

We are expecting to get it into the store HOPEFULLY by the end of May.

Belfiore, head of the Windows Phone Production team, linked to the pictures at the top of this post, showing off how the File Manager interface should look. As you can read in the quote, he is hopeful that it should be available “by the end of May”.
