  • Now, you can arrange, group them into folders or even delete Apps.

OSX Lion: Make way for the King

Steve Jobs says that the Lion has been inspired by their efforts with iOS, resulting in an expanded use of multitouch gestures, an emphasis on iPad-like full screen applications and an App Store for OS X (which will also be coming to Snow Leopard). The Launchpad application launcher will give an iPad-like grid of icons allowing you to create iOS-style folders for applications and finally the all-new Mission Control will offer a unified view of all open windows, apps and dock. Expect the eighth major release of the world’s most advanced operating system; Lion to roll out in the summer of 2011.
