WWDC: The five coolest things about iOS5

Whew, this is sure covering a lot of ground, isn’t it? It’s kinda tough to keep up with everything. And the new iOS, coming out this fall, will have a TON of great new features that are all over the place, from notifications to Game Center to PC-free updates and so on and so forth. Here are a few of our faves: 

  • » iMessage: The BlackBerry’s one lynchpin — its messaging system — now has a competitor, and it looks pretty freaking badass.
  • » Twitter will be easy to set up and use, and it’ll be simple to share those details with other applications as well. It’ll be easy to integrate it with other apps, like the camera, as well. 
  • » Safari will have tabbed browsing, as well as a button that will allow you to read websites much easier. It will show up as text that you can just scroll through, rather than having to look at the entire website. 
  • » The Camera is new and improved as well. There’s a camera on the lock screen so you can access it quickly, and you don’t even have to unlock your phone to use it. There’s even a built-in photo editor. 
  • » Mail will include Rich text formatting, you can drag addresses, flagging messages as unread, and even allows you to search the entirety of your messages. source

Newsstand is exactly what it sounds like: A place for all of your magazine and newspaper subscriptions to go. You’ll be able to set up subscriptions, and when new issues become available, they will download in the background and be available even when you’re offline. source

The five coolest things about Apple’s OSX Lion

Lion will only be available in the App store, meaning you can’t install it with a disc. That also means that it’s easy to upgrade and update. Much like Snow Leopard, it’s only going to be $29.99. Unlike Snow Leopard, it’ll only take up 4 gb of hard drive space. Not bad. Some of our favorite new features: 

  • » Mission Control lets you see all the apps and other things your working on easily on your screen. It lets you preview apps and programs before you actually select them, and lets you easily select new Spaces.
  • » The Mac App Store already allows you to buy software easily from the Internet — and, in a big step, the OS too. The only place you can buy Lion is on the Mac App Store.
  • » Resume allows you to easily revert your document to how it was when you opened it, rename it, duplicate it, and even see past revisions and copy-paste from them into your new one. It’s basically like a version of Google Docs on your desktop, but better. It’ll keep you from having multiple copies of the same document on your computer.
  • » Airdrop will replace your USB flash drives — it’s peer to peer sharing, but with documents. Again, seems like Google Docs, but built in to the computer. Airdrop will show you everyone who is using it, all that you have to do is drag-drop the document in question on another nearby user and it’s shared.
  • » Mail will be searchable, and it will show emails as conversations, just like Gmail if you’re familiar with it. Searching your email is extremely easy - you can search by sender, date, or subject, or all three in one search box. source
