This will not be possible due to operating system restrictions.

None exist as Microsoft does not allow that feature on it's operating system.

Only xap files from the store can be installed on the 520. Save them on the memory card and they will be installed from there. Xap files from alternative sources cannot be installed on standard devices.

 

See this link: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-gb/How-to/wp8/apps/how-do-i-install-apps-from-an-sd-card

You need to ask Microsoft why they have chosen not to add a file manager to WP8. Personally I have no need for one as individual apps manage files themselves.

Well... We will ask Microsoft that why file manager is not available... If they think they haven't added this feature because of security but the files are accessible if we connect phone to machine.


i believe that Microsoft will listen to nokia because you are business partners...

if i try to download some content from messaging service, everything comes in photos which is quite awkward.

but we can the directory using machine then what kind security is left with this OS.

Even i face similar problem.. When i tried to upload a pdf file to skydrive the app only allows to upload photos... If you download any pdf file then try to open it later you can not do so, since you do not have any file explorer to locate ur file. U hv to download the file again amd open it from mail only.... Very poor file management.....
