Mac OS X Users to Get Support for Zune Software & WP7 Syncing


Mac users planning on purchasing a Windows Phone 7 device may be worried about OS X support, but it looks like they wont have to worry when it comes to syncing with Zune software. Microsoft executive Oded Ran has just tweeted that Mac users will finally get access to Zune software, which will allow for syncing with WP7 devices.

All Windows Phone 7 based devices will utilize Zune software to sync content, the same way iOS users use iTunes. This announcement is the first we have heard about the iTunes competitor heading to Mac OS X, and although the tweet has now been removed, its quite certain that the software will inevitably make its way to the Mac before WP7 devices are officially available to the public.

    Holy shit… finally? Are you kidding me. I first bought my Zune in 2008 and I was very fond of how pretty it was. I also liked my Win2k. I had to upgrade to XP in order to even use the damn thing.

    Strike 1.

    Then I got a Macbook. OSX even running VMWare sucks with this! The Zune software would add tags that would screw with iTunes’ handling of the files. But most importantly, there is no native support. Great marketing strategy.

    Strike 2.

    Anyway, I ended up finally buying an iPod turning my 80G Zune into a brick… until now!

    Nice news I guess.
