Now, if you want to move work to a separate space, you'll enter Mission Control, then click and drag the windows to the icon to create an extra desktop.
The Magic Mouse offers alternative gestures as well, so you won't be left out in the cold if you prefer a more traditional mouse.
Even though the animations are mostly an aesthetic upgrade, we found it much easier and more elegant than hitting back on the Web browser and reloading past sites.
Launchpad: Obviously taking queues from what works on iOS devices, Apple decided to add the same application layout to Mac Oion.
Apple has stuck to this particular design aesthetic for many years by not implementing this basic feature, and we're really glad to be able to finally use apps full screen in Lion.
Featuring several interface enhancements and useful new features across all the core apps, Mac Oion is an excellent update for the price.
The bottom line: Mac Oion is definitely a worthy upgrade for all Intel Mac users.
This is one area where you'll particularly notice the natural animations of the new multitouch gestures: when two-finger swiping a Web page, it slides over smoothly exactly at the speed you swipe.
You'll need Mac OS X and an Apple ID to access the Mac App Store in order to upgrade.
If you're an iPhone or iPad user that loves iOS, Oion can't fail to impress.
Other download options: Apple recognizes that 4GB can be a big download, especially for users without broadband.
The app supports the newly designed scrolling method, along with tap or pinch to zoom, and swipes to navigate a tab's history.
Launchpad and Mission Control: Get a convenient overview of your open windows and applications in Oion's Mission Control and access/organize applications much quicker with Launchpad.
With Mission Control, your open apps are displayed across the top with the Expose view of all open windows at the bottom-no confusing options.
While some will no doubt love the new way of navigating OS X, others may not want their Mac turned into one big phone or iPad - in which case you can always still use the mouse as normal.
We found earlier versions of Expose to be somewhat confusing, with different buttons for different actions causing you to have to experiment to find the right key to see all windows open in an application.
You can also now simply drag and drop files to other Macs in your vicinity or network via your Mac's AirPort wireless connection - a nice little feature that makes working with other Mac users easier then ever.
Installation Installation for Mac Oion requires a couple of steps.
You still have an Application folder like previous versions of Mac OS X, but now you have the option to click the Launchpad icon in the Dock or use a three-finger and thumb-pinching motion to open Launchpad.
Just like the iOS experience, you can click and hold an icon to bring up the jiggle motion, then reorder apps or drag them on top of each other to make folders.
