Along with the release of Windows Phone 8, Microsoft has also released a brand new app for Windows Phone in the Windows 8 store. The app will be a repalcement for Zune Software which was used to connect Windows Phones to Windows to transfer music, videos, pictures and also to update the software.
But with the release of WP8, this new software would be used to sync the devices with Windows, the app is also available in desktop version as well.
While this is pretty great news for WP8, the biggest drawback is that WP7 devices are not compatible with this app. So the existing users of Windows phone devices will be definitely disappointed with this move.
