Pre-order: Surface Laptop | NEW Surface Pro

windows phone 7 connector

It would seem there's some lag with the Apple App Store as we've only just been notified of an update to the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac this morning, even though the update dates back two days ago. 2.01 (tallied at just under 6MB) features a new "custom ringtones" category and brings the following to the table: 

  • 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

As well as the above improvements, some fixes were also included:

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

Resolved connectivity issues is huge for us as we've been experiencing problems with using the client to even connect to our handsets. But unfortunately, as can be seen in the above screen capture, the issue still remains to be present and the app rendered useless (we've attempted re-installations, resets, etc. but still no joy). I can't remember the last time the app actually worked. Luckily, Zune is prepped and ready on the desktop. Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac can be found in the App Store.
