Just a developers preview for now, the upgrade is still very much in its infancy, but there are a host of changes. Here’s a quick overview:
Notes, iMessage, Game Center and Reminder apps. Your favorite iOS apps are all here and are all built right into 10.8. They all work with Apple’s cloud storage and sync offering, iCloud, so when you start a conversation on your iPhone or iPad, you can pick it up on your Mac, right where you left off.
Mountain Lion also brings Notification Centre to the desktop. Predictably, it looks very similar to the iOS version and works pretty much in the same way, except it lives in the space just right of your desktop. This is probably the feature I’m most excited about, and is likely to have the most affect on your work flow.
Everyone’s favorite microblogging service is here too. You can tweet directly from various apps and add Twitter handles to your contacts. Hopefully integration with other services is on the way.
It’s interesting to see Apple investing so much in merging the two operating systems together, and makes you wonder, where to from here for our precious iDevices?
