    Hello:

    I am trying to find out if it is possible to sync across multiple mac devices my installed applications and preferences.

    For example I have a Mini and a Macbook and I want all the applications I installed in one computer to auto install on the other, and other minor preferences, such as arrangement of the icons on the dock, these small details... home page settings on Safari.

    Similar to what Google Chrome does when you sign into your gmail account, it automatically syncs all your personal settings when you sign into Chrome on another computer. For example Chrome remembers the homepage set of pages, whereas in Safari even though it is synced through iCloud, these personal settings like the homepage have to change it manually...

    I found this article that explains it better:

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Thanks.
