Microsoft Updates Windows Phone Connector for Mac

Microsoft has shipped out an update to the Windows Phone Connector for the Mac. The Windows Phone Connector is essentially the software which allows a Windows Phone handset to communicate with the Mac to allow for file transfer on and off the device. The update most notably includes custom ringtone support for Windows Phone and the ability to drag files off of the device onto your Mac computer, however, there are also a number of other fixes in the mix as well:

New features include:

• 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

You can find the Connector software for Windows Phone in the Mac Store here.

(Disclosure: I use Windows 7 and the Window’s 8 Dev Preview as my main OS installs, but sometimes use Mac OSX for review purposes.)
