In anticipation of today’s Windows Phone 8 launch, Microsoft have released the official Windows Phone connector app in the Windows 8 store. This app is supposed to be a replacement for the tedious Zune, the official app description is;


Your computer and your Windows Phone 8 work together seamlessly with the Windows Phone app so you always have your photos, videos, and music, and more where you want them.


  • Get your music, photos, and videos from your computer to your phone (and vice versa).
  • Quickly share things from your phone with Windows 8 apps (like Photos, or Search). You don’t even have to open the Windows Phone app to move things around.
  • Automatically save photos and videos you take with your phone to your PC.
  • See at a glance how much space you’re using for each type of content, so it’s easy to make sure you never run out of room on your phone.
  • Get to to download apps, learn more about your phone, or find it if it’s lost.
Unfortunately when trying to connect my Stormtrooper to the app nothing happens as the device isn’t recognized, meaning the new connector app is for Windows Phone 8 only (and possibly WP7.8?)
To get it yourself either search “Windows Phone” in the Windows store.
