With the release of Mountain Lion (10.8) Messages (formerly iMessage) is baked into the operating system. What is Messages? Glad you asked. Messages is one of my favorite applications in the new operating system. Using Messages you can “text” with other iCloud users., but that’s not that cool, except these messages show up on ALL of your devices. iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or Mac. Personally I am usually in front of my computer and it is easier for me to type a message on my full sized keyboard instead of the little keyboard on my phone.
Messages also has an MMS like feature by that I mean you can send photos, HD video, or any other types of attachments. Unlike a text message, Messages will let you see that the message has been received on the device as well as whether the person is responding.
Now Messages is everywhere. You can start a conversation on your Mac, then continue it on your iPhone or iPad and back. Also from within Messages, you can initiate a FaceTime conversation.
Do you have any favorite Mountain Lion apps, or features? Leave them in the comments.
