Windows Phone 7 Connector adds Apple Lossless sync

Microsoft gave Mac users more parity with their Windows peers late Friday with the 1.1 update to Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac (free, App Store). The new version now lets Apple Lossless (ALAC) tracks sync to Windows Phone 7 or, likely, Zune HD devices. Those using the desktop Zune app on Windows already had Windows Media Audio support and thus an edge if they wanted higher quality sound.

The upgrade also now has the option of starting the app whenever a WP7 device plugs into the Mac; it previously had to either be open or running in the menu bar. A bug fix prevents the app from spiking CPU usage in certain conditions, and the app as a whole is faster.

It continues to focus on media syncing and will pull music, podcasts, and videos from iTunes as well as photos from iPhoto. Microsoft's app doesn't support contact or calendar sync but also manages firmware updates.
