OS X 10.10 Yosemite: Overview of Action Center

OS X10.10 Yosemite brings a number of new features, starting with a new interface that is both cleaner and more colorful. The engineers of the Bunched Apple obviously did not just change the color or appearance of icons and windows of their applications. They have also implemented new features relating to the ergonomics of the system, such as this new, more complete and more intelligent notification center .

Disclaimer: This video was shot on the first beta of the system. Many things are therefore likely to change in the weeks and months to come.

Os X 10 10 Yosemite Overview Of Action Center

This is the new Notification Center built into OS X 10.10.

On Mavericks, this famous sidebar did not really shine by its features and it was content to display the various notifications generated by our applications, with three buttons to write a new message on FaceTime, Twitter and Facebook. Limited? Certainly, and this is precisely what prompted Apple to review its copy for Yosemite.

With the latest version of the system, the notification center is even closer to what can be found on iOS. It goes straight to the point with a gray background that is both dark and translucent. The effect is exactly the same as for windows.

Two panels, widgets and an opening for third-party editors

But the real novelty is in the content, since it is now spread over two different tabs: “Today” and “Notifications” . Like an air of deja vu? Logically, iOS offers exactly the same. Anyway, if the second will look exactly the same as the current version of the notification center, the first will go much further and thus allow us to have an overview of our day, and of all associated tasks.

Basically, this tab will be structured around several very different widgets, widgets highlighting the appointments of the day , reminders , actions followed in Stocks and many other things.

It is obviously possible to change the organization of this panel by clicking on the gray button located at the bottom. It will allow us to switch to edit mode, and it will thus display another side panel gathering all the widgets that have not yet been set up. In a few seconds, we will be able to add to the notification center a calculator, a world clock or even a panel grouping together different buttons to push content on the main social networks of the moment.

If need be, we will also have the possibility to change the order of the widgets on the panel, or to delete the ones we don't use altogether.

Basically, Apple offers a dozen different widgets but third-party publishers will eventually be able to submit their own creations to the Mac App Store.
