Awesome! - A must have application for anyone about to install Mountain Lion or anyone using 10.7.4 for that matter as it listed all the feature both new and old in the apple operating systems. The application have short, very straight forward videos that show you the differences features in your OS, they break them down into features by App or you can just follow along as it listed all the features. Great program :)

A winner app - The biggest problem with Lion was that there were so many features, and no help early on. Blogs were your only salvation. "Hello Tips, Tricks & Secrets" provides succinct, animated hints for all the new features in Mountain Lion. The interface is simple: tap (or click) on the selected feature, and you'll see an on-screen animation of the feature - with sounds - including how to enable and use the feature. There are quite a few new features in ML, including Dictation and Notifications, so this App closes the info gap fast. The latest version gives an animated tutorial - with voice over. At $1.99, getting this is a no-brainer; you don't have to wait for the books to come out. This should accompany every new OS update.

Review by eFahad

No Secrets! Rating based on usability for me. - I personally didn't find a single secret i don't know. This app is good for users who're newly introduced to Mac and they want a quick tour and maybe this is the aim of the developer. Kinda confused what rating to give because the app performs fine but the usability zero for me. Not recommended unless you're fresh "Mac'er".
