FileTag 2 UWP colour codes your files

Published by at

A novel idea that's perhaps more use on the Desktop but nonetheless works on Mobile as well, FileTag 2 UWP lets you associate coloured tags with specific files, in theory organising and grouping files in a new way. Perfact for project management or one extra step of file management complexity? Your call!

From the Store description:

Welcome in FileTag 2, the app that will let you to keep at your fingertips every file and folder that you need most! An app that let's you associate colourful tags to any element, that you can easily find through the in-app search. Perfectly integrated with Windows 10 and its fantastic features:

  • Fluent Design
  • Dark and light theme
  • Semantic zoom
  • Windows Hello
  • Drag & Drop
  • Cortana
  • Surface Dial
  • Notifications

Here's FileTag 2 in action, via the promo screenshots:


As you can tell from the file paths, there's an element of (admittedly very colourful) organisation here that's a bit over the top for the phone - in my opinion. Still, it might be useful for someone trying to marshal resources for something from multiple file types and possibly even from multiple users on a Desktop.


More colourful organisation, along with more helpful quick-open, delete, share and tag controls...

I get the impression that FileTag 2 is something of a test project for the developer, in that it's an intricate solution for a problem that doesn't really exist. Yet it must be very challenging to develop, so is a good playground for (in this case) Luca Lindholm, who also created the wonderful Zenit and Terrae Motus UWP apps featured here recently.

PS. Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update (build 15063 or higher) is required in order to run this, but that shouldn't be a problem for most people.
