Key Features of “Mac OS X Lion”
Lion comes with 250+ cool new features which makes life simpler.
A home for your apps
Launchpad is a full-screen home for all the apps on your Mac. It creates full-screen pages to accommodate your apps and adds new pages as you add more apps. Find the app you want and open it with a single click.
Move between Launchpad pages with a three-finger swipe.
Arrange apps any way you like.
You can rearrange apps by dragging their icons to a new location or even to another page.
Organize with folders
Group applications in folders. Simply drag one app icon on top of another and Launchpad creates a folder. Launchpad uses the application’s category (Productivity, Finance, Games) to suggest a folder name, or you can create your own. Each folder can hold as many as 32 apps.
Drag favorites to the Dock
For even faster access to your apps, drag your favorites to the Dock from Launchpad.
2. Multi-Touch Gestures
Fluid, responsive animations
Fluid animations make gestures feel more responsive, as if your fingers were manipulating the actual page. OS X Lion includes new animations such as rubber-band scrolling, zooming, and swiping.
Tap to zoom
Double-tap to zoom in on text or images in Safari and Preview. Safari zooms intelligently based on the layout of the web page, so you get exactly what you’re looking for.
3. Air Drop
Send files wirelessly
AirDrop is the simplest way to send files wirelessly to anyone around you.
No setup or configuration
AirDrop doesn’t require setup or special settings.
No network required
AirDrop uses Peer-to-Peer Wi-Fi between participating Mac computers and doesn’t require a wireless network infrastructure or base station.
Make video calls
FaceTime for Mac lets you make video calls to other Intel-based Mac computers, iPad 2, iPhone 4, or the latest iPod touch.
A new full-screen view puts FaceTime video calls in their own space. This allows you to switch between a call and other apps while still in full-screen view. Checkout, How to use Inbuilt webcam on Macbook Pro?
5. Mission Control
See everything on your Mac
Mission Control brings together everything running on your Mac — open windows, full-screen apps, spaces, and Dashboard — in one bird’s-eye view. A row of thumbnails across the top of the screen represents Dashboard, desktop spaces, and your full-screen apps. The lower part of the screen shows an Exposé view of the open windows on your desktop. Click anything to instantly navigate to it. Learn How to Animate Dashboard in Slow Motion 😉
Swipe up and your desktop zooms out to Mission Control. Swipe right or left to move to the next or previous Mission Control item.
Mac is really cool than any operating system 😉
