HT4783: Mac Basics: AirDrop helps you share items with others nearby

Learn about Mac Basics: AirDrop helps you share items with others nearby

HT4783 It does appear that compatiblity between different Macs is a problem. On my 2008 iMac Aperture is still OK but my MBAir of 2011 reports it won't run! The iMac seemingly won't run Airdrop because it is "old". Huh? Now the better DropCopy fails on the iMac.

Sorry for the lengthy title, I wasn't clear what I was doing.


Anyway I have two Macs. iMac from 2008 and 2011 MacbookAir. Airdrop I thought really poor when it appeared and no competiiton for DropCopy. My iMac, I'm pretty sure ran Airdrop to begin with but now at just over 3 years old is effectively obselete. Then to add insult to injury DropCopy is OK on the MBA but crashes repeatedly on the iMac.


So, I removed the Dropcopy and went to the App Store to reinstall it but it showed as "installed". That's it. What's Windows 8 like?
