Mac OS X Lion Update & Review
Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
So Apple recently released Lion, their new Operating system for Mac Computers. Its said that there is more than 250 new features some of which, will change the way you work with the operating system. Only costing £20.99 in the Mac App Store.
Multi-Touch gestures transform the way you interact with your Mac, making all you do more intuitive and direct. Now an even richer Multi-Touch experience comes to OS X Lion. Enjoy more fluid and realistic gesture responses, including rubber-band scrolling, page and image zoom, and full-screen swiping.
OS X Lion offers systemwide support for gorgeous, full-screen apps that use every inch of your Mac display. You can have multiple full-screen apps open at once — along with multiple standard-size apps. And it’s easy to switch between full-screen and desktop views.
Mission Control brings together full-screen apps, Dashboard, Exposé, and Spaces in one new feature that gives you a better view of everything on your system. With a single swipe on the trackpad, your desktop zooms out to Mission Control. It makes it so you can almost view everything and go anywhere with just a click.
Launchpad gives you instant access to all the apps on your Mac. Just click the Launchpad icon in your Dock. Your open windows fade away, replaced by a display of all your apps. Arrange your apps any way you want, group them together in folders, or delete them from your Mac with ease. And when you download an app from the Mac App Store, it automatically appears in Launchpad, ready to blast off.
Now apps you close will reopen right where you left off, so you never have to start from scratch again. And when you install software updates, you no longer need to save your work, close your apps, and spend valuable time setting everything up again. With Resume, you can restart your Mac and return to what you were doing — with all your apps in the places where you left them.
Now your Mac automatically saves what you’re working on so you don’t have to. It’s not just an improvement for OS X, it’s an improvement for anyone who’s ever lost hours of hard work after forgetting to press Command-S.
With AirDrop, you can send files to anyone around you wirelessly — no Wi-Fi network required. And no complicated setup or special settings. Just click the AirDrop icon in the Finder sidebar, and your Mac automatically discovers other AirDrop users within about 30 feet of you. To share a file, simply drag it to someone’s name. Once accepted, the fully encrypted file transfers directly to that person’s Downloads folder.
Ok so i just updated to the new OS it runs very smooth and works will all the apps i have installed (official and non-official).
With the launchpad and mission control, the multi-touch getsures have been changed and re-mapped, however it takes a while to get used to them after using the old ones.
You can now make as many Desktops as you like instead of only being able to have the four before which you can scroll between at any time using a "three-finger gesture" which previously was the multi-touch gesture for going forward and backward on web pages (a "two-finger gesture is now used for this).
Launchpad, this basically displays all your applications on an IOS style screen which you can use to launch that application, much like IOS you can also create folders.
