Report: Apple Snow Leopard takes swipe at location, multi-touch features

Apple's Mac OS X 10.6 is expected to include location and multi-touch developer tools for its Snow Leopard operating system, according to AppleInsider.

Apple reportedly is gearing up to offer location and multi-touch developer tools in its Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard operating system, according to a report in AppleInsider

The geolocation tools will take a page from the iPhone software development kit (SDK), by way of the CoreLocation framework, according to AppleInsider. The CoreLocation works inconjunction with the Mac's networking hardware, aiming to provide a GPS-like experience.

Apple's next generation OS will also provide developers with programing interfaces that are Cocoa-based, as a means to maximize the use of the multi-touch features within the MacBook and MacBook Pro applications, AppleInsider notes.
