Wondering if there are any Microsoft-developed apps on Apple’s Mac App Store? There weren’t any when the Mac App Store launched back in January; there is one as of this month though. Redmond-based software giant Microsoft has rolled out its first app on the Mac App Store, the Windows Phone 7 Connector app.

If you have a machine powered by Mac OS X 10.6 or later, and a Windows Phone 7-powered smartphone (or a Zune HD), you can use the Windows Phone 7 Connector app to sync your media files between your devices. To be more precise, you can use the app to:


- Sync your photos and videos from your iPhoto library.
- Sync music, TV shows and podcasts from your iTunes library.
- Import photos taken with your Windows Phone to your iPhoto library.
- Import videos taken with your Windows Phone to your iPhoto library.
- Browse through media items stored on your Windows Phone.
- Download and install Windows Phone operating system updates.

If you would like to get the Windows Phone 7 Connector app from the Mac App Store, check out this link. The app is offered free of charge by Microsoft.

In related news, let me remind you that Apple announced the Mac App Store back in December and launched it next month, on the 6th of January. The launch turned out be quite a big success. In just one day after the Mac App Store’s launch, Apple announced that it recorded more than 1 million downloads. This prompted Steve Jobs to say the following: “We’re amazed at the incredible response the Mac App Store is getting. Developers have done a great job bringing apps to the store and users are loving how easy and fun the Mac App Store is.”

There are currently more than 1,000 free and paid apps in the Mac App Store. All these apps are sorted in categories like Education, Games, Graphics & Design, Lifestyle, Productivity and Utilities. Additional information on the Mac App Store is available here.
