Apple recently announced yet another good news for their fans. They offered a preview of Mac OS X 10.7 a.k.a Lion, which includes a Mac App Store and many iPad/iPhone like features. Steve Jobs told it was inspired by the company’s efforts with iOS. New features of Mac OS X 10.7 includes Launchpad application launcher, which gives you an iPad-like grid of icons and also lets you create iOS-style folders for applications, and Mission Control, new window management app, which gives you a unified view of all your open windows, open apps, and your dock.
If you click the Launchpad icon, it will bring up an iPad/iPhone like home screen, which allows you to browse and select apps in a very similar manner. They also have an exclusive App Store for OS X, which will also be coming to Snow Leopard. The Mac OS X Lion 10.7 and the App Store were announced in the “Back to Mac” event yesterday. Mac OS X Lion 10.7 is slated for release in Summer 2011.
