Apple fans are definitely familiar with the latest release of OS X Lion. The upgrades and features connected into your user account are extraordinary. Not to mention the powerful Mac App Store at your fingertips 24 hours a day. I feel that designing for Mac OS X is an incredible experience, and some of the best professionals also feel the same way. I want to use this post as a source of inspiration for any future OSX applications.
