WP Device Manager gets previewed [Homebrew]

Developer Schapman has promied some advanced tools for the homebrew Windows Phone crowd such as the all-powerful WP Device Manger, but we haven't see much until now. Schapman recently gave a preview demo of the upcoming app for your PC desktop and it certainly looks to have plenty of features:

  • Manage your apps, check for updates
  • Edit Office documents
  • Transfer files
  • Connect via tether or WiFi
  • Device Info
  • Screen capture
  • Send SMS, emails, notes, clipboard info
  • Add custom ringtones

Overall, not a bad list. If it lives up to the hype, it could be a very powerful tool for people wanting a little extra control over things. No word on release, but it is in private beta now, so fingers crossed.
