Mac: Windows Phone 7 Connector Gets Mango Update

August 31, 2011 No Comments

Windows Phone Connector (the equivelant to Zune software for macs) has been updated for Mango.

What’s New in Version 2.0

Windows Phone 7 Connector 2.0 provides the following updates and changes:


  • Full sync and import support for Apple Aperture software
  • Drag and drop import of files from Browse Device
  • Ringtone transfer support (for phones running Windows Phone 7.5 or later)
  • Improved video conversion process with user configuration options
  • Support for Windows Phone Marketplace (for phones running Windows Phone 7.5 or later)
  • Localization support for 13 additional languages
  • Improvements to backup and restore operations
  • Improved configuration for podcast sync and photo import
  • Improved iTunes import support in certain languages
  • Improved metadata support for videos


  • Added additional error codes and help references for device update
  • Resolved connectivity issues with certain devices
  • Resolved album art display issues for certain devices


Glad Microsoft updated the application for Mac users but they should have Zune software. I am a huge PC user but I believe that by not giving mac users full Zune support – it just makes Windows Phone look bad (not mac).

Here is the description for Windows Phone Connector (just in case)

Windows Phone 7 Connector is a simple,  easy-to-use application designed to sync your favorite media files from your Mac, with your Windows Phone 7 or Zune HD. You can also sync photos and videos you captured on your phone with your Mac, and when needed, update your Windows Phone 7 software.

With Windows Phone 7 Connector, you can:

  • Sync music, movies, TV Shows and podcasts, from your existing iTunes library, to your device
  • Sync photos and videos, from your existing iPhoto library, to your device
  • Retrieve photos and videos, taken on your Windows Phone, and automatically import them into your existing iPhoto library
  • Browse and preview media items located on your device
  • Download and install operating system updates for your Windows Phone (as applicable)
    *Only unprotected (non DRM) files are supported

Windows Phone 7 device (any carrier) or Zune HD
