If you have a Windows Phone 7 device and a Windows computer, you can download the Zune Desktop suite to synchronize your music, movies, and other content between your PC and phone. But what if you have a Mac?
For the two or three people who own Mac computers and Windows Phone 7 smartphones, Microsoft has released Windows Phone 7 Connector. The app has been in beta testing for the last few months, but now the company has removed the beta label and pushed the app to Apple’s Mac App Store, where it’s available as a free download.
Windows Phone 7 Connector lets users sync videos, podcasts, or music between a computer and phone, including photos and videos in an iPhoot library. You can also use the software to download and install system updates to your WP7 device.
Unfortunately, the app only supports synchronization of DRM-free files, so you may have to resort to shadier techniques to get your DRM-laden audio and video files purchased from iTunes onto your phone.
The app has a very iTunes-like look and feel, which should help alleviate any guilt you may feel about about using your Mac to load up your Windows Phone 7 smartphone.
The Windows Phone 7 Connector also supports the Zune HD if you happen to have Microsoft’s latest portable media player rather than a Windows Phone 7 device.
