Easily Transfer Office Files From PC To Windows Phone With Office File Uploader

All you need to do is to double-click BookUplaoder.exe on your PC, make sure your phone’s screen is turned on and unlocked, choose the files – and they’ll appear in the Office Hub. Pretty straightforward, and as a bonus, the desktop app also looks really nice and fits in with the design of the Zune client.
So, go ahead and download the Office File Uploader in the forum thread, and be sure to leave the dev some feedback!
