Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you will be more than aware that mountain lion is set for release this summer And we’ve scoured the Internet to find you information of some of the lesser publicised changes in Mountain Lion.
File Copy Progress Meter
Just like installing an app on iOS, file copying progress is displayed on the file or folder
Launchpad Gets It’s Own Search
Personally I can count on one hand the number of times that launchpad get’s used on a weekly basis. Is there really that much difference between going cmd+space and searching than hitting a button, moving the cursor to the top and doing a search?
TextEdit iCloud Integration
Its the first signs that Mountain Lion will really push the cloud usage and I for one can’t wait for this. Dropbox does a great job and that’s undeniable, it will always have it’s place on the market. With iCloud synching notes this way instead of in mail just makes sense
Software Update is gone. All done in the App Store
Convergence once again as 2 similar features are rolled into one. Instead of checking both Apple software update and then in the App store, these have been consolidated.
Some of the changes are going to be subtle. Here’s a few that we’ve noticed so far.
- iCal is now “Calendar”
- Address Book is now “Contacts”
- The Screen Saver window got a face lift
- Universal Access got a major face lift
- Software Update is still in the Apple menu, but now automatically opens App Store and redirects to the Update tab.
Universal Access also got renamed to just “Accessibility,” as well as getting a face lift:
Remember that pesky option to Reopen windows when logging back in with Lion was always ticked? No longer with Mountain Lion.
