The new Windows Phone 8 sync client has been received with mixed reviews. On the one hand, people like the new modern UI look and exceptionally minimalist feature set. But perhaps it was a bit too barren?
Luckily the Windows Phone 8 sync client (for Windows 8) has been updated today to version 1.1.2303 and indeed the syncing ability for music and media has been refined. You can see in our before and after shots that your music is now place into what look like Tile/Folders as opposed to just “slots”. Right click on the folder will give you the ability to add the UI common “check” allowing you to sync that whole folder. If we had to guess, we’d say Microsoft purposefully made it much more “touch friendly” for you Surface and touchscreen users.
Head past the break for some comparison shots...
Our bet is this app will see quite a few updates over the coming months to add features or improve upon the design, so stay tuned. We haven’t noticed too many other changes in today’s update so for that, we’ll rely on you: let us know in comments if there are any other big changes that we should know about. Thanks, Nick C., for the tip!
