Windows Phone Connector app goes into public Beta
It's time for your Windows Phone 7 and Apple Mac to become one
Microsoft has released a public beta model of an app that will enable users to sync their new Windows Phone 7 handsets with an Apple Mac computer in a cross-company compatibility move that some feared would not happen.
Titled the Windows Phone Connector, the beta application, which is free to download from the Phone 7 app store, will bridge the gap of a rivalry that is both fierce and widely publicised whilst allowing users, in official Microsoft release speak, to: “synchronize your favourite music, videos, photos and podcasts from iTunes and iPhoto to your Windows Phone 7 so you can take your media with you wherever you go.”
Although Microsoft might be wishful to think it can convert Apple’s hardened Fanboys from their Macs and iPhones over to the Windows Phone 7 system, the new connector app makes the recently released and stunningly simple and seductive OS available and fully compatible for a wider consumer base.
