Mountain Lion strolled onto the scene earlier this year, with a lot of interest but no showy unveiling. Apple gave the world a better glimpse at its newest big cat at the World Wide Developers Conference, reserving a good chunk of the June 10 keynote for more details about the next iteration of OS X, which dropped in July in the Mac App Store for just $19.99, the lowest price yet for an OS X upgrade.
With Mountain Lion, Apple has brought a bunch of useful iOS features over to the Mac, including AirPlay mirroring, Messages, Reminders, Twitter, and iCloud support throughout the OS. Join our Mac safari to see 80 Mountain Lion features that you may have missed since you clicked Install in the Mac App Store. Some will make you more productive, while others are just fun and make your life a bit easier. Not everyone will fall in love with all 80 of these features, but together they’ll give you a lot to sink your teeth into.
