In my last tutorial we met for first time the Handoff capability that was introduced in iOS 8.0. With it, an activity that is started in one iOS device can be continued to another from the point that was left off. Also, an activity can be continued on a Mac too, as long as the operating system is the version 10.10 (Yosemite) and a respective application exists. Obviously, it is a nice new feature that developers can take advantage of in order to create cool applications based on an entirely new philosophy.

- Download and extract the ZIP file containing the application. Double click the extracted application. (If GateKeeper does not allow you to open the app, right click the app and select “Open”.)
- Choose the VM you want to install and click “OK”.
- Wait while the required files are downloaded, extracted, and imported into VirtualBox.
- You’re done! VirtualBox will be opened so you can start using the VM.
