Owners of a Nokia N9 smartphone have now at their disposal a new version of the Nokia Link application that enables them to connect the device to a desktop computer.

The first software version arrived a few months ago. Since then, Nokia has been gathering feedback from users, so as to know what can be improved.

The changes in the new application release are meant mostly for Windows PC users. The new software iteration was designed offer support for Windows XP and Windows Vista, in addition to being compatible with Windows 7.

According to the development team, the addition of support for more Windows releases was one of the most requested enhancements for the application.

The app is available for Mac users as well, and can be downloaded and installed on machines running under Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

“Being able to copy mobile content to and from smart playlists in iTunes and Windows Media Player is another useful addition,” the development team notes.

“And because people were looking for an easy way to remove content, such as music, from the memory of their Nokia N9 phone, we wanted to make sure that this would be an easy thing to do with Nokia Link.”

In addition to these, the new app flavor brings along a series of bug fixes, as well as various other small enhancements to improve users' experience with it.

One of the features that will not make it to the application, however, is the possibility to sync contacts and calendar.

“Many of you have also asked if it would be possible to sync your contacts and calendar with Nokia Link. This is not part of our plans, because Nokia N9 has made it simple and effortless to sync over the air,” the team over at Nokia Beta Labs explains.

Those who will download the new app release and take it for a spin should consider offering feedback on the experience they have with it, so that additional improvements are packed in the next iteration.

Nokia Link is available for download from Softpedia as well, via this link for Windows PCs, and on this page for Mac computers.
