Version 2.0 of the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac app has been rolled out to the Mac App Store a couple of days ago by its developer, Redmond-based software giant Microsoft. This means that if you have Windows Phone 7-powered mobile device and you also have an OS X 10.6-powered Mac, you need to get Windows Phone 7 Connector 2.0 to be able to update your Windows Phone software and sync media files between your Mac to your phone.

If you would like to get Windows Phone 7 Connector 2.0, you can grab it from the Mac App Store by clicking here. Before you go get the app, here are the main highlights, as detailed by Microsoft:


- 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
- 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.

If you are not familiar with the Windows Phone 7 Connector app, here’s a quick explanation. Back in February, it was the first Microsoft-developed app to make its way onto the Mac App Store. The app can be used to perform the following tasks:

- 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.

The Windows Phone 7 Connector app is offered free of charge by Microsoft.
