Apple Mac users finally getting Xperia updating capability

bridgeformacUp until now Apple Mac users have had no way to update the software on their Sony Ericsson Xperia smartphones, unless they owned a Windows PC or laptop. That is all about to change as the SE Product Blog confirmed that version 2.0 of the ‘Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac’ application will finally bring Xperia software updating support.

The current version of the software (v1.2) allows you to connect your Xperia to your Mac to add media content and free up space on your phone by moving photos/videos to iPhoto. You can also drag and drop files between the Mac and phone. SE didn’t say exactly when v2.0 will be live, but we imagine it can’t be too far away. Bridge for Mac 1.2 is currently available to download here, once installed it will automatically update to newer versions as they become available.

    Like I mentioned on the g+ page, Mac users are mainly iphone users. xD (dont shout at me please)

    Sod the crApple nicheTards. It should be Windows and Linux only!

    Fuck those nigger-commi-loving macFags!

  • I think your priorities are all wrong… first you need a working keyboard driver.

  • Way to generalise there, Asad. I’ve been using Macs at work and home for over a decade and have never owned an iPhone. I have several friends who fall into the same category.

    I’d wager that the majority of iPhone users run Windows. ;-)

  • Yeah! Apple’s vendor lock-in sucks because let’s face it, it’s not like Sony ever tried to lock it’s users into it’s own ecosystem… Oh wait, I forgot about Memory Stick, UMD, Minidisc and ATRAC.

    If you’re talking about simple ROI, there are far more potential owners running OS X than (one of the dozens of variants of) linux… and I speak as someone who ran linux on his home machine for years.

    Two wrongs don’t make a right.

  • Sony (Ericsson) did so much to make all Xperia models compatible with Mac, yet Apple did nothing to co-operate with Android…? 

  • I never said that, I was merely being flip. You set the tone of the conversation by opening with name calling.

    I stand by my previous comment that SE will garner a better return on their investment developing a port for OS X (6.4% global market share) versus linux (1.6% global market share), especially if that linux port needs to be tested on the various mainstream distros.

    Your “logic” makes no sense

    Mac user since the early nineties here. Have never owned an iPhone. Just because hipsters use Mac doesn’t mean all mac users are hipsters.

    Please give us a possibility to update our se-phone’s software with linux!

    I’ve downloaded. extremely disappointed. 4 hours fiddling with the software and it has not done a single fucking thing for me. Can’t select songs, cannot drag ANY media into my xperia (does not respond, everythings greyed out). It’s 12 am and I’m starting to get real pissed that I got conned into buying something when the biggest selling point is that it will work seamlessly on my mac with itunes integration. iTunes ‘integration’ my ass… Might as well just drop the files directly into the phone using Android File Transfer application. The software cannot even see playlists on iTunes, which is probably one of the major reasons why people USE itunes in the first place. Glad I got the phone on the cheap.
