Microsoft have released their first app for the Mac App Store. The Widows Phone 7 Connector is a simple application for copying media files to a Windows Phone 7 and Zune HD. Great to see the Zune HD supported, I have VMware installed on my Mac Book Air and had set the Zune software up on the Windows partition so that I could use it move files around but this connector means it can all be done from OSX. Good news for Windows Phone 7 users that have a Mac
It’s also interesting to see Microsoft support the Mac App Store, I wonder if we will bee more application for OSX from Microsoft delivered this way.
Windows Phone 7 Connector is a simple, easy-to-use application designed to sync your favorite media files from your Mac, with your Windows Phone 7 or Zune HD. You can also sync photos and videos you captured on your phone with your Mac, and when needed, update your Windows Phone 7 software.

• Sync photos and videos, from your existing iPhoto library, to your devices
• Retrieve photos and videos, taken on your Windows Phone, and automatically import them into your existing iPhoto library
• Browse and preview media items located on your devices
