    I don’t like the fact that you can’t set the calendar alerts to remind you again at a later time, such as an hour later. This feature seems to be gone with Mountain Lion

      You can. There’s the Snooze thing (15 minutes), but also you can edit the event in Calendar to add as many reminders as you want. So you can click on the event, it takes you to the calendar, and then add a new reminder for it. Not easy, but possible.

      This is something I used often. Some notifications I would repeat in a day, some 2 hours etc.. I hope Apple returns this feature, but I don’t hear too many com plaits of the new behavior.

    Hi! Is it possible to synchronize notes from my Mac (I have mountain lion) with my iPhone 4 and my iPad 3, without having to create a new address at me.com?

    Thank you for your answer!

      You need to create an iCloud account. But that doesn’t mean you need to use a @me.com address. Create the account using your existing address. Then you can also get a free @me.com address, but you can just continue to use your old one instead.

    I added twitter account and have banner checked in notification center but new tweets are not showing up in notification center

      Not sure. I’m not using it myself — too many tweets coming in. I’d imagine it would only be direct messages that show up. Or direct messages and responses. Even someone following as few as a dozen people could see a flood of tweets if it were otherwise.

    Yea that is what i thought also. but it would be nice to “hook” certain followers into notification center, that way it could truly be a Twitter client.

      It is easy to create RSS feeds from Twitter and lists. I’ll bet some developer comes up with an RSS reader that then send stuff to the Notification Center based on criteria.

    Hi Gary, is the mac app store icon suppose to be showing in Notifications. I recently had an update to an app which never showed in the Notification Center. I have seen a screen shot showing the icon in NCenter. But it has never shown in mine and I didn’t see it in your video. It’s not in system pref.. Notifications list…

      I haven’t see it either, but I’m pretty sure I have seen a notice pop into the upper right corner for an update.

    Thank you for this video. Wish you could sync reminders with people, like work lists etc.
