Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

I have iBoos Author 1.0 installed on a Mac running 10.7.3. I am trying to deliver an .ibook file to iTunes but error says I need Author 1.1 but I have not been able to upgrade to i.1 because when I try to download 1.1 I'm kicked back to i.o and the "Install" button is greyed out and changed to "Installed" Wazzup?
