    I can't think of a time I've ever needed to manage files on a phone. What do people use it for?

    Official app is much faster and clean and loads up almost all the things in couple of seconds then any other 3rd party apps atleast for me. I have used almost all of the file manager apps available on the WStore.

    I don't really use file managers much but it is a welcomed edition to the Windows Phone 8.1 App lineup. I would use it more once OneDrive is added.

    Files app should function more like Photos app. If you have one folder full of photos, the Files app should be able to swipe through photos in full screen mode.

    When selecting a favorite photo, it should not save to Saved Pictures folder. This behavior should mimic Photos app.

    It needs OneDrive support so you can easily transfer/copy files between device and cloud.

    The official manager is pretty neat and has UI is nice too and it does what exactly a filemanager has to do..... eventhough i dont use it much often but still it is may be ( the best in my point of view) one of the best filemanagers out there in the store....
    I hope ms make it evenmore robust and add much more functionality in to it...like integrating onedrive,all the apps such photos,music,video etc...

    It is better than nothing &, imho, better than Pocket File Manager and Aerize.
    But it is much worse than it's analogues on Android (especially TotalCommander).

    Its a very nice app and most welcome. Loads really fast and is smooth. Its just the initial release. Over the months I'm sure MS will bring about further improvents and features to the Files Manager.

    It's a decent app, not as good as pocket explorer though.

    It works so well that I uninstalled the other third party apps from my phone such as Aerize Explorer & Folders Beta. It's clean and fast, I don't see what there is not to love about it!

    I can tell you one scenario right off the top of my head; renaming files. Think about how much easier things will be now that we can rename a picture file to something other than default.

    Example: moving a saved wallpaper I get from Bing (or any other wallpaper source) from the Saved Pictures folder to my created WP Wallpaper Folder--I had to do this on my computer every time.

    I was one that thought I wouldn't need an app like this, but with this one simple function my tune is changed.

    I'm liking it so far for a v1.0 release - fast, efficient and fluid. Why can't the OneDrive app be like this?!!!?!?!

    I kind of agree with you until I went into the Photos hub to look for a photo that I took some time ago. I wanted to know the date/time that I snapped the picture and I couldn't do it. All you get in the Photos hub is a month by month pivot view of your camera roll. Unless I had uploaded them to OneDrive or viewed them from my PC, I would never know. With Files, now I know. It's small thing but it's those little things that make the overall experience better.
