With all the hype that it is getting, it would not be wrong to expect something extraordinary from OS X Mountain Lion. It seems that Mountain Lion will be indeed extraordinary.
According to an online report, the latest developer build of OS X Mountain Lion released last week will be bringing iOS-like automatic app downloads to Mac App Store purchases.
Like on the iPhone and iPad, when you buy and install an app on one of your Macs, all of your other Macs logged into the same App Store account will automatically install the app too.
Unfortunately, the feature does not seem to be working completely. While the App Store will still offer to enable automatic downloads (as seen above), it does not actually install anything when you purchase apps from another computer.
Apple has been issuing regular updates of OS X Mountain Lion to its Mac developer community. At this point, Apple is expected to offer many more details on the next-generation operating system at next month’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco.
Currently, OS X Mountain Lion is scheduled to see a public launch in “late summer” of this year. It will bring a number of enhancements including several features drawn from iOS such as Notification Center, Game Center, Messages, and Reminders.
