Now that OS X Mountain Lion has arrived in the Mac App Store, its easy to feel the pull to update to the latest Mac OS, but if you use your machine for work, you might want to slow down.
Yes, OS X Mountain Lion is easily worth the $20 upgrade cost, but not all apps are compatible with the new system.
This could cause many headaches, lost time and lost productivity. It’s especially important to check app compatibility with OS X Mountain Lion because there is no simple roll back feature to start using OS X Lion again.
In the past you might have had to visit 40 different websites to check which of your apps are compatible with OS X Mountain Lion, but thanks to RoaringApps.com, it is easy to check the OS X compatibility of many apps in one location.
The Mac app compatibility table makes it easy to search for your apps by name, and offers quick links to the developer website if you need to check more about the compatibility or look up when a developer plans to release an OS X Mountain Lion compatible version of the app.
Users can search by name, developer and can sort the list to only show incompatible apps. The tables are updated regularly, and include comments from users who have questions or are already using the software on OS X Mountain Lion.
Roaring Apps is a free service, and definitely a recommend stop before upgrading to OS X Mountain Lion. For more, check out What to do before upgrading to OS X Mountain Lion.
