    I get mine, but not the app notifications unless the app is open.

    Mine's very hit or miss. I was upset, but then...I stopped caring since the rest of my system works lol.

    Yep same.. which is the most pointless piece of rubbish i've ever heard.. So you get notified when you look yourself. So whats the actual point of it? None at all really!

    Opens App Store > Look at updates section (OH I HAVE 2 UPDATES) > ....5 Seconds later while you're download the update.. You have 2 updates on the notifications center.

    Cheers Apple!

    Yeah, ML is unstable right now especially when you add 3rd party software to the mix. Felt fast when i first updated but i guess customizing it slowed it down.

    The close windows when quitting an application box is whacking out on me, (that means it doesn't work most of the time) and the ask document prompt (when exiting) works but in a weird way.

    When i have it unchecked it will ask to save, but it does the same when i have it checked but with a dot in the close button. And it won't prompt at all when i have a written document that i came back to but i guess that's autosave being silent and sinister.

    So is that the way it's supposed to work? I have yet to get a single notification from the App store. I intentionally did not open app store to update iPhoto just to see if I would eventually get the notification(I didn't).
