Latest Mountain Lion update brings iOS-like automatic downloads for apps
May 20, 2012 at 7:16 pm
The latest update to OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview three appears to have partially enabled iOS-style automatic app downloads in the App Shop. Like on the iPhone and iPad, when you acquire and install an app on one particular of your Macs, all of your other Macs logged into the very same App Store account will automatically install the app too.
Sadly, the feature does not seem to be working totally. Even though the App Retailer will nevertheless provide to enable automatic downloads (as noticed above), it does not in fact install anything when you obtain apps from an additional personal computer. Nevertheless, it does apparently show the app as getting installed when you view it in the App Shop. There is a great likelihood we will see at least one particular far more developer preview, or at least a GM, in the coming weeks that ought to totally allow the feature.
