The ninth major release of the Apple’s OS X desktop operating system, Mountain Lion has more than 200 new features including iMessage, Notification Centre, Dictation, iCloud integration along with Reminders and Notes.
“Just a year after the incredibly successful introduction of Lion, customers have downloaded Mountain Lion over three million times in just four days, making it our most successful release ever,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
Part of the new Mountain Lion operating system is an increased integration with Twitter.
