Mac: Windows Phone 7 Connector Gets Mango UpdateAugust 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).
