General bug fixes
Great app, once you know how to use it...
This app would deserve a 5 star rating, but I was experiencing problems with it. I was looking through the review section and finally found help from one who was experiencing the same problem as me: the app "could not find" the music in my iTunes Library. What you need to do is go to the File menu (in the Windows Phone app) and select "Allow Access to Folder", then locate your iTunes library in the Finder. Once I got it to work, every thing was as strightforward as it should have been from the start.
Additionally, I did not enjoy replacing my iPhone with another smartphone, but the Windows Phone is a great alternative and I would highly recommend one getting it if their iPhone was suffering from the same battery problems as mine… Anyways, this app makes the transition from an iPhone to Windows Phone very easy; it is a great utility to move your iTunes purchases to another non-Apple device…
It does the job.
Despite the update breaking my syncing abilities with my old Windows Phone, I got a Windows Phone 8, and it works fine again.
Overall it does the task the application sets out to do, so there isn't much to complain about.
That said, I feel like that application its self could be better and do more. One area, I have been trying to move away from using iPhoto to Picasa to handle photos, but Window Phone Connector will only acknowledge iPhoto or Aperture.
On the plus side I can now sync iTunesU videos, whcih I could not before.
It is just conflicting. When Windows Phone first came out it seemed we were seeing signs of a new Microsoft that was willing to play with other developers and beat them at their own game to get on top again. But it seem that Microsoft is sliding back to their old ways.
Absolute Worst Software
There’s one reason I really hate Windows Phone. It’s this. I have a simple task that I want to do: click and drag 4-5 files (podcasts) from my desktop computer onto my phone. There is no simple way to do this! The best it can do is sync my computer with my phone! But when it syncs, it decides that because my desktop computer does not have all of the music that my phone does, it should delete EVERYTHING that my desktop doesn’t have from my phone. Oh and accessing my phone directly from my mac? Impossible. Why would we let you do that.
What is the solution? Save everything to a the micro sd card from your phone, and perform surgery on your phone EVERY time you want to load only a couple of files onto it, that is use the SD card slot on your computer and manually load things onto your phone.
This is just one of the millions of problems with this software… Don’t get me started on the rest. Absolute piece of ____. If I die because of a stroke, it’ll be thanks to Windows Phone.
