Pick only selected type of files
Once I have >1000 photos and 10 videos in phones memory finding just video files is annoying.
It would be great to filter the files and pick only videos or selected one.
I’ve submitted this query to the Windows Phone developer team as, ideally, this is something that the OS would take care of for me.
Without relying on them, I would be forced to create a new UI just to show videos, which would not only take time on my part, but also limit the “other locations” capability that’s built in to the OS’ file picker.
So, I’m waiting to hear that they improve this in the future. I’m not hopeful it will be better in the immediate future as 8.1 is already pushing out to phones.
Here’s a link to my request on the wpdev uservoice forum: http://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-dev-platform/suggestions/6340429-file-picker-should-filter-by-specified-extensions
