One of the most flashy and iOS-inspired features in Mac OS X Lion is Launchpad, Apple’s new app launcher.
Launchpad is a new way to view a grid of apps you own on your Mac, much like how an iPad’s home screen looks.
It’s a good way to organise your apps so you’ll never have to dig through the Applications folder again.
And when you buy an app from the Mac App Store, it pops right into Launchpad.
To get started, either click the Launchpad rocket in your dock, or use this gesture.
The gesture is definitely more convenient if you have a MacBook with a trackpad, or a Magic Trackpad for your desktop Mac.
