Apple MacOS Mojave is here, but we're still waiting for one killer feature
Mojave the latest update to Apple's MacOS operating system 10.14 is here.
Do you want to install it?
The short answer is there doesn't seem to be any reason not to.
Apple's made a big deal out of the dark theme and it is certainly nice to have.
But with apps that don't support it, it can be jarring.
If you change the wall paper from the default Mojave, the translucent menu bar changes based on the background.
That actually turns out to be a plus in some cases.
For instance, I like as much black as possible in my interface and now I get it in the menu bar.
The new gallery view, which you may also know as a film strip view.
Is really useful for scrolling through images and finally being able to see metadata is great.
I love the ability to combine multiple files into a PDF right there.
But, there are some drawbacks like the tiny thumbnails.
You've also probably heard about stacks for automatically organizing the desktop.
That's good if you're okay grouping them by one of the old sort types or the use of color tags.
And if someone who uses screenshots a lot but who can never remember the shortcuts The new command, shift, five shortcut to bring up all the options is terrific.
Being able to jump straight into the new markup view to edit and annotate from the screenshot thumbnail is also convenient.
But you still can't easily choose folders to save them in other than the system defaults.
Voice memos ported from iOS is pretty rudimentary.
It needs options that the other ports, News and Stocks, for example, don't.
And they don't wanna leave out some passing little changes that deserve note, like separating the operating system updates into its own system preference and the site icons that appear in Safari tabs.
Plus some of the new features require iOS 12 to use, like Continuity Camera.
So if your not updating your phone you'll have to wait on those.
