Today, Apple has released seeds of it’s latest operating system, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. One of the features of Lion that was not covered in his keynote at WWDC last year was the feature called AirDrop. With AirDrop, you can simply drop files to another user who is using AirDrop – pretty clever.
Send it by air.
With AirDrop in Mac OS X Lion, you can send files to anyone around you – wirelessly. AirDrop doesn’t require setup or special settings. Just click the AirDrop icon in the Finder sidebar, and your Mac automatically discovers other people nearby who are using AirDrop. You’ll even see contact photos for those who are already in your Address Book. To share a file, simply drag it to someone’s name. Once accepted, the file transfers directly to the person’s Downloads folder. When you’re done with AirDrop, close the Finder and your Mac is no longer visible to others.
