Few Important features of Apple’s MAC OS Mountain Lion are –
- The new software will have better integration with social networks such as Facebook Inc.’s. It will have built-in features to facilitate sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and other services. For instance, you’ll get notifications when you get a message or a mention in a Facebook or Twitter post. You need to sign in only once, and you can share directly from other apps you are using.
- Power Nap keeps your Mac updated even while it’s in power-saving “sleep” mode. It will get your email messages, back up your files and download software updates automatically. It will work with recent Mac Book Air computers and the higher-end Mac Book Pro model, the one with the sharper, “Retina” display.
- A new Messages app, copied from Apple’s mobile operating system, will replace iChat. It will allow you to send messages to other Apple users, whether that person is on a Mac or an Apple mobile device.
- Mountain Lion will be integrated with iCloud, the new Internet storage service designed for the mobile devices.
- The software will bring dictation to Macs, essentially allowing the computer to type as you talk.
- Game Center will store high game scores and help users find opponents on both Macs and Apple mobile devices.
