Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac has been peppered with an update offering support for Mac OS X Lion and fixing a host of issues to make sync files a breeze on your WP7 device.
If you have been craving for a tool to connect your Windows Phone 7 on your Mac machine, embrace the Windows Phone 7 Connector 2.0 for its host of new offerings.
The latest version that goes by the name Windows Mac Connector 2.0 is driven by features aimed at Mango users: drag-and-drop import files from device, improved conversion of video files, easy transferring of ringtone are added to the bag. It is also possible to access Windows Phone Marketplace on your Mac — good news, eh?
The issue with the older version leads to phones, especially Samsung Windows Phone 7, failing to connect and throwing a ‘Connect your windows phone to continue’ error screen. The newer version seems to fix this — no issues with my HTC 7 Mozart thus far.
As mentioned before, Windows Phone 7 Connector can help you not only with transferring Mac’s iTunes library files to your WP7 device but also to update your phone to the latest firmware, if available.
The interface hasn’t run through any huge changes, but the new features are what matters the most. Yes, Windows Phone 7 Connector doesn’t come close to Zune Player for Windows, but it’s certainly picking up steam with every update.
