    I don't think you can go that far, as any decent Universal app will do something with files and once you do that you're code changes significantly (the idiotic "AndContinue" FilePicker crap in WinPRT). We talk about the significant differences between computers, tablets, and phones in terms of the OS but MSFT is still, even after the Win8 disaster, trying to force them together. For whatever reason they still think that they can use Windows desktop dominance to leverage their way into phones. It hasn't worked and won't work. That's not what consumers want.
    Note that I was referring to Windows 10 not WP8.1

    From what I understand, W104M (Windows 10 for mobile) will use the exact same WinRT API and runtime as W10, not just an adaptation of it. I suspect/hope MS will have a more straight forward file-picker solution by then.

    If they intend to deliver on what they promise, they certainly can't have those kinds of differences between W10 and W104M.

    The HTC 8x and 8s models might not get an upgrade. Windows 10 isn't on the phone name. :P
