Top Ten Lion Features
At the World Wide Developers Conference last week, they released 3 new things. One of which being the brand new Macintosh Operating System OSX Lion. With this new operating system, there are over 200 new features but today I am only going to show you the top 10.
Number 1 : Multi Touch Gestures
Apps will be controlled by different multi-touch gestures; including three fingered swipe, scroll, pinching and zooming.
Number 2 : Full Screen Software
Full screen applications are really going to take advantage of every pixel on your screen in Lion. Editing video will be so much nicer, being able to work on a better screen. So full screen applications are going to be nice!
Number 3 : Mission Control
I already now that I’m going to like mission control. If you like exposé, and easy access to Dashboard, Desktop, and fullscreen apps. You are going to love Mission Control too. The photo bellow shows Mission Control. It is a whole over view of everything open on you computer. Windows, Applications. Full screen applications, etc.
Number 4 : Mac App Store
This feature is not new, it has simply added a new detail to it. This is going to be the only place to purchase and download the Operating system Lion.
Number 5 : Launch Pad
Launch Pad is an over view of all of your applications. This feature will simply allow you to organize all of your applications on your operating system just like iOS. You have the ability to add them into folders as well.
Number 6 : Resume
Resume will be a good feature. With Resume, your applications will reopen right where you last closed them. When you have to do software updates and restart your Mac, everything will “Resume” right were you left off.
Number 7 : Auto Save
This feature will be extremely useful fore me. Auto Save simply automatically saves your data. So lets say that if you were working on typing a paper, for example. If you were to restart your computer with out saving it once, all of your data will be exactly like you left them.
Number 8 : Versions
This goes hand-in-hand with Auto Save. It will save individual versions of your document. So if you did something to the document you don’t like you can always revert back to any copy. The interface looks very similar to Time Machine.
Number 9 : Air Drop
A Dropbox-type feature that allows you to get documents between computers. Incase you have multiple macintosh computers and you wish to work on something on different computers, now you can.
Number 10 : Mail
This is also something that is not new, it has simply been revised and made better. With this version of Mail, you have a much better search interface and better results.
