Connector overhaul

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Microsoft has refreshed its Windows Phone application for Macs, which now enables data transfer between Apple computers and Redmond's latest mobile platform.

The Windows Phone 3.0 update - previously dubbed Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac - has seen a massive overhaul, with support for Retina Display Macs, iPhoto 9.3.2, Aperture 3.3.2 and of course Windows Phone 8.

Windows Phone 3.0 for Mac

OS X users can now sync their movies, music and data, drag and drop files between devices and easily update their iPhoto library straight from their new Microsoft handset.

The state of the phone's battery can now be seen too and there's also enhanced support for Windows Phone 8 ringtone files, apparently.

The Windows Phone 3.0 app is available free through iTunes. ®
