Introduction

Now that you know how to work with the graphical elements that make Mac OS X Snow Leopard work, you’re ready to work with applications. An application is software you use to accomplish a specific task, such as word processing or managing files on your computer. Snow Leopard comes with several small applications and utilities that are extremely useful for completing basic tasks, such as creating a written document or performing basic calculations. Its suite of applications let you organize your workflow and create sticky notes. You can even edit and create digital media for use on the Internet, CD, or burn it onto a DVD. In addition, Snow Leopard makes setting up and communicating over the Internet easier than ever. And, if you happen to own an iSight (Macintosh Web camera), Snow Leopard helps you communicate with other iSight owners using audio and video. If you deal with a lot of fonts, Snow Leopard comes packaged with a font management system second to none. Snow Leopard’s applications are powerful tools for organization, gaming, controlling digital media, and Internet communication, just to name a few.
