Tracking the inconsistencies in OS X and iOS



By

With each new release of iOS and OS X, there are always feature inconsistencies between the two platforms that leave you wondering why. Some of the differences may not appear to be major features, but when used could become a real time saver when using both systems. The following is a rundown of some feature inconsistencies that will hopefully be resolved in the upcoming release

Pretty neat article at Gigaom. Over the early years iOS say rapid development utilizing a single screen and touch interface. OS X then began to catch up with a lot of these concepts, especially in areas of shared interest with multi-touch track pads and smaller MacBook Air screens.

It makes sense for Apple to continue converging the user experience, although many long time Mac users see this as a negative. What will be interesting is if iOS gains a new multitasking interface as rumored, whether that will resembled the Mac or if the Mac will also gain that.
