TouchXplorer Windows Phone 7 File Explorer Demoed, Coming Soon

Julien Schapman, the developer of TouchXperience, just hit our inbox with some interesting news on his latest project. He’s created a file explorer, called TouchXplorer, for Windows Phone 7 that supports standard file operations, such as open, edit, copy, move, delete, rename, and search, with “full access to the system.” It almost reminds us of the file explorer from the last generation of Windows Phone, but with a makeover. There is a catch, though, your device needs to be unlocked, as Microsoft disallows programs like TouchXplorer from entering the Marketplace. Schapman claims it will not be blocked by OS updates, but also expresses uncertainty on its compatibility with non-HTC Windows Phones. His plan is to release TouchXplorer within the next day or two, so stay tuned to his website. In the meantime, check out the preview video for TouchXplorer below and let us know what you think.

Update: TouchXplorer has been released. You will need to sideload the app. Please be careful with it, as it gives you full access to system files.

Thanks: Julien
