Mountain Lion to get automatic download alerts

With the release of the Mountain Lion platform the automatic download option for the Apple devices are also expected

The Automatic Download feature of Apple seems to be coming on the latest developer’s preview of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Earlier this year this automatic application installs wee touted as one of the many features as introduced to Mountain Lion.

This feature allows the users to have applications Store software automatically installed on iCloud-registered Macs. Although the automatic is fully functional in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, but when the users purchase content Mac App store the OS X notification Center posts an alert to the automatic download and the product gets installed.

This alert also features an enable button which helps the users to get started with the downloading process. But for the time being the process has not opened yet as the software doesn’t automatically install.

Earlier we have seen that Apple has introduced apps in the cloud which features on the iPhone, iPad, and even iPod touch with the release of iOS 5 last year. This has allowed the users to shop for applications on one machine and have the same titles automatically download, with the same account on the rest of their devices.

The same is also offered in the iOS 10.7 but the fact is in it the applications will get downloaded automatically to their machines. Although the Auto Download Purchase from other Macs was already available but with this new update it also provides a notification when the content of the Apps Store has been purchased through their account.

The Mountain Lion’s final release of Mountain update has been scheduled to go on sale by this summer for the public.
