Week in Review: December 2nd

Welcome to the Week in Review, where we recap the top stories of the past week!

File manager and improved SD card storage coming to 8.1?

  • Microsoft employee on the WP User Voice website marked file manager and ability to store apps on SD card as “completed”, saying that they’re now available in WP8, which currently is false.
  • The employee also marked GDR3 features like ability to close apps completed, which is correct.
  • Thus, the employee might have confused 8.1 features with GDR3 and accidentally marked some upcoming 8.1 features complete.
  • Microsoft has already uncompleted the requests in question.
