Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac

By Microsoft Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Oct 17, 2012

Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 Connector is a slick app that syncs media files between your Mac and your Windows Phone 7 device or Zune. Windows Phone 7 Connector installs quickly and has a nice interface that shows your media files by category, as well as giving a schematic of the connected Windows Phone 7 device's capacity and disk usage.

The Windows Phone 7 Connector interface is really simple to use and will feel remarkably familiar to any iTunes user. Select the files you want to sync (pretty much any non-DRM media file) and click the Sync button. The software then does the rest. You can even download Windows Phone 7 operating system updates on your Mac and use Windows Phone 7 Connector to sync them. While what Windows Phone 7 Connector does is pretty simple in theory, being able to sync your Mac and Windows Phone 7 device so simply is really nice.

We didn't test Windows Phone 7 Connector with any Windows Phone 8 devices, but it's a solid bet that Microsoft will issue an update to this software quickly. As it is, for Mac users who also use a Windows Phone 7 device, this is a must-have free app. Well done.
