File manager coming to Windows Phone 8.1 in June, will be called Files
The official Windows Phone UserVoice is a great place to get your feedback heard by Microsoft. Today the company has done some spring cleaning and flagged a lot of requests as ‘completed’. One of the most requested feature was a file system of some sort. Earlier this month, Microsoft shared that an official file manager would be coming to Windows Phone 8.1 this month. It looks like that date has been pushed back a month.
The Windows Phone team has been cleaning up the UserVoice thread and marking as complete. The request for a file manager to come to Windows Phone has been marked completed. An admin on the boards also informs us that the file manager app for Windows Phone will be launching in June and will just be called ‘Files’.
Files will be coming to Windows Phone sometime in June. We can’t wait and we know a lot of you can’t either. Keep your eyes peeled.

Does you phone have OPTICAL image stabilation or is it just a POS stone age relic?
This would be cool for dumping your files when On The Go.. Like if you had a 41mp camera, and no SD card slot, and no WiFi... Perfect for vacation's, and enterprise use.
Then, after people have sampled the app and what it's capable of: Microsoft will open the flood gates and let other developers access the API, so as to implement this into their own apps.
As far as I go, it better be better than Pocket Explorer... And Pocket Explorer is by far the better file manager on the WP Store. It's "bad" enough that Rudy Huyn can produce in a week a better ago than a major company *cofinstagramcof* let's see if Microsoft will be humiliated by the work of a single developer too.
GIF files are emerging exponentially, and I really hope Microsoft catches on.
I can wait up but your competitors getting grow up everyday.
