    I know. VS 2013 update 2 RC is not to stable to use in production. Also do not forget that WP8.1 SDK brings a little new for developers :)

    When you decide to use it, also use 1min background refreshes to check for downloads and send a notification to user.

    Could you please return the grid view of file options instead of a scrolling?

    Even in old version it has scrolling. Because of many available options

    Just want to inform everyone who faced bug in video player. This has been fixed. New version already uploaded for certification. Could take a while as now Microsoft unfortunately spends more time to test app that before.
    Also in new release :
    Added internal cache for all cloud storages. This will drastically improve browsing experience.

    And now to answer to all emails and posts on Facebook about updating PFM for WP8.1:

    This is not an easy process to do it! Do not forget that PFM supports a lot of clouds plus local storages, all of them a unified . Simple recompiling application for WP8.1 doesn't work. In WP8.1 our permission to access SD card and Phone memory doesn't work anymore with recompiled application targeted Windows Phone 8.1.

    Our company is already in contact with Microsoft to find what is wrong with it. We do not want to use currently available features in WP8.1 to access files using pickers as this is not a good solution because it does not give that level of access, we have now. For example you cannot hide or see hidden files and folders.
    But if we won't be able to fix problems with capabilities - new WP8.1 version of PFM could use same mechanism as currently available in some "file managers". But again, WP8.1 is not in release, most of people will have it at the end of the year.

    We will release 8.1 version even without MS help. Consumers of course will lost some functionality in it:

    1. No more audio player. Microsoft removed support for background audio players in Windows Phone 8.1 Silverlight applications! What a clever decision!
    2. You won't be able to see hidden folders
    3. You won't be able to hide files and folders
    4. Integrated PDF viewer will be removed.
    5. Could be a few other things, not discovered yet.

    But you will have access to any folders, including all in phone memory.

    So I think to make an poll to check do you guys and girls need it :)

    (When MS will fix their permission problem, an 8.0 version of PFM also will get access to folders in phone memory).

    lol ! But MS has already released the preview, and has RTMed it, so its up to nokia and carriers (not for me, we dont have carrier power in India) now. Also, they declared that it'll be out by end of summer for all.

    Btw sorry for going off-topic, what the point was that pocket file manager has been a nice solution for many things I've wanted to do, and it'd be great to have a 8.1 version soon ! :)

    1) yes, very clever and idiotic ! Anyway, its fine, we'll manage with some other one
    2) bad ! So we wont be able to reset sd card by deleting the wpsettings.dat file ?
    3) maybe add a way to simply hide files when viewed through pfm ? You wont have to edit the,file, just to save that that file is not to be displayed through pfm. It would do half the job.
    4) again bad ! So if i recieve pdfs via email or Bluetooth, i wont be able to save them because adobe reader does not export to sd, i used pfm for that always !

    Still, It'd be great to have it, for all the other features :)

    Oh and ray, what would happen if i run the 8.0 version on 8.1 ? Would i have access to the music player, pdf, hiding files etc ? Or would that version be affected too ?

    Edit:
    Okay, I'll post there now, on the beta thread.

    Indeed. MS stated that Audio player is only available for Windows Phone RunTime application. But trhere is no way PFM could be converted to it. We have to write EVRYTHING from scratch. All our libraries, all thrid party libraries. So this is just impossible now :) And Windows Phone RunTime application have even more restrictions than apps in WP 8.0 :)

    No. You still will be able to receive PDF in PFM, but preview it inside. PDF will be opened in Adobe or MS reader instead.

    One step forward, two steps back :)

    THats good, so it would still register itself to open pdf files and would then save them in its local storage and open it with adobe ? Good, at least i didn't lose functionality..

    PFM was the only app that allowed users to move through the music by a seek bar. (very useful for podcasts)
    Well, does that ability (to move to specific second of music) available in 8.1 APIs? (May I hope such music apps appear?)

    As I said Microsoft removed audio playing ability for WP8.1 Silverlight apps.
    AudioPlayerAgent Class (Microsoft.Phone.BackgroundAudio)


    Silverlight apps are all apps were made for Windows Phone 8.0 and converted to Windows Phone 8.1.
    Windows phone RT (or Windows Phone Store) apps, are new universal (W8+WP8) apps that Microsoft wants us to produce. But this is totally different technology so you cannot just convert all your code from WP8.0 to RT 8.1. Mostly times you need to rewrite it.

    Hi
    I bought PFM and I am really disappointed because I have only access to media files (pictures & videos).

    Not having access to Documents, Music, Downloads, Ringtones, ... makes it completely useless.

    May I ask why "Pocket Explorer" is able to show ALL these files and why "Pocket File Manager" isn't ?

    Both of the 'file managers' available on WP 8.1 are just exactly the same as hooking your phone up using the USB cable to a PC. Same file access. Thumbs up to the developers, but anyone expecting 'root' file access, will be waiting a long time.....

    actually, you bought the 8.0 version. Its an amazing version, considering the fact that in 8.0, no app could even access sd card correctly, leave alone phone memory. But MS gave permission to PFM to access sd card. Not phone memory.
    In 8.1, there's a new way for devs to access the sd card as well as internal memory, but with lesser amount of control and access. That's what you expected. Sadly, you bought the 8.0 version. The 8.1 version would be out in 2-3 days maybe, its submitted, and it CAN access the internal memory as well as all documents etc, which is what you wanted. Remember, in 8.0 even sd card access was a very big thing, but in 8.1 it is not. PFM for 8.1 would be able to do whatever you want. Better than others.
    Do check it out in a day or two :)
