Microsoft has issued an update to its Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac.
Microsoft has updated its Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac software. The company issued version 1.1 on Friday, featuring bug fixes and enhancements. The updated software is now available in Apple’s Mac Store. Microsoft says it has fixed a high CPU utilization problem in certain sync situations and has included some performance improvements across the application. Windows Phone 7 Connector users can now configure the application to start automatically whenever their phone is connected. Microsoft has also included support for users to sync Apple Lossless encoded audio files.
The Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac, allows Mac users to sync their Windows Phone 7 devices with iTunes and iPhoto. Windows Phone 7 Mac users are able to sync Music, Videos and Photos to their phones.
The Windows Phone Connector sits on top of Apple’s iTunes/iPhoto for Mac and interacts with both software programs using public APIs. Microsoft says it has not had to work with Apple in order to implement the connector. The install package is extremely lightweight at only 1.5MB. It’s not designed to replace the Zune experience from the PC and we hope that Microsoft considers writing a full Zune application for Mac in the future.
You can download version 1.1 at Apple’s Mac Store.
