Microsoft officials said at the start of May that the company was going to provide a Microsoft-developed file manager hopefully by the end of the month.

The new free app, called Files, is available for download now from the Windows Phone Store.

Windows Phone 8.1 is currently available in developer preview form, as well as preloaded on a few brand-new handsets like the Lumia 630. Anyone can get the operating system preview bits for their Windows Phone 8 devices by signing up as a developer (whether he or she intends to develop apps or not).

Files provides users with access to files stored on their phones and SD cards. With the app, users can browse, search and launch files; share one file or multiple files; create folder for organizing files; and copy, move, rename and delete files.
