I can't say that that is one of the more exciting things for me. ;) Lots of other good looking improvements in there, though, from what we've seen.

That has to be one of the stupidest articles I've read in a while, and the note at the end doesn't convince me that it wasn't just an embarrassingly misguided article, and that the author is trying to cover up his dopiness. I mean the title pretty much makes it clear that it wasn't intended as a warning for prospective early upgraders. Ridiculous stuff.

They keep touting 200 new features, but only ever highlight 7. Do the other 98% suck that badly?

Why did they think it would be a good idea to add more undeletable icons to my phone? So annoying.

My favorite part of setting up iOS5 was when it asked if I wanted to set up iCloud and then I kept getting the message "cannot connect to iCloud". Awesome.

I like it so far, but I only have an ipad. Newstand is nice on a tablet where newspapers and magazines work well. The new notification system is MUCH better than the annoying pop up bubbles. Wireless syncing and updating will be great as well. The split keyboard on ipad is a nice option as well.

icloud worked for me last night, but I don't need that for anything really anyway as all my mail and contacts are in the cloud already as my workplace uses office365 for that stuff.

I started downloading the iPhone iOS 5 last night and 4 or 5 hours later there was still a reported 4 or 5 hours to go. Too many people trying to get it at the same time, I guess. So, no, I didn't get it installed yet. Hopefully by the time that's done, I'm hoping the iPad version will go a lot quicker.

I heard about the Newstand app. That's pretty annoying that they don't let you even put it in a folder. Hopefully enough people complain that they change that. Everything else pretty much sounds great. I can't wait to use it.

Minimizing the text box automatically when scrolling up in a text convo is amazing. Should've been there years ago

Camera seems quicker for me; always a plus. Also, I like that it's available from the Lock Screen now. Played around with that for a bit.

To be honest, I didn't really mind the old text bubbles...though this new system definitely looks nice.

I'm also annoyed that Newsstand won't go in a folder.

One thing they're never gonna update/change is Searching text messages...what's the point of the current search box? It barely finds anything I want it to find when searching. Does it only search for a small limited time?

For example, if I search "tr" I get two text messages...I was in the process of spelling out "train" (which got no results...even though I've used it a couple times in texts). I would be much happier if I could do a text search on any and all my text messages that I have.

Has anyone gotten iCloud to work? Keeps giving me an error. :|

Haven't played around with much and have class soon, but I love the minimizing keyboard in texts.

i got pretty excited when i realized i could make folders for photos and put pictures in there from my camera roll. but then i was immediately disappointed when i deleted the picture from my camera roll and it disappeared from the new folder. so basically, the folder is a bookmark, not an actual folder. annoying.

You mean moving your MobileMe account to iCloud? It kept telling me to "please try again later," and didn't work until early this morning.

Yeah, I think the default setting is to back up automatically when plugged in and in lock mode.

Ah, just got it to work.

I have to get a new iPhone in a couple days (my lock button is stuck), should I use iCloud to backup and then restore to my new iPhone or should I use iTunes on my computer for that? Does it really matter?

I'd back up on your computer to be safe. Don't wanna leave this stuff up to chance with iCloud just yet.

Anyone know if it is possible to get the ESPN ticker added to the notifications window (like the stocks)?

Only with a jailbreak, I believe. Also, it's possible hide the Newsstand app inside of a folder by creating one with two folders in it and dragging the Newsstand app in as the folder animation starts. It'll cause the app to crash if you open it and must be removed to use, but it's at least possible to hide it.

So if I set to sync with iCloud and I add songs to my iTunes library on my computer, will that sync up with iCloud to add them to my phone/iPod? I feel like it should but I haven't seen that sort of thing mentioned explicitly. Furthermore, I sync my iPhone to my laptop and that's where my main iTunes library is, but I do have iTunes on my desktop. If what I assumed above is true, would I have to add songs from my laptop, or would either work? I'm assuming laptop only because I know how iTunes tends to be with multiple computers.

If you bought them on iTunes, and have "automatic download" enabled, they'll show up on all of your devices (at least I think that's how it works).

Phone from lock screen has proved useful to me. I've hated missing moments to capture because i was busy scrambling to unlock and open the app.

I'm also annoyed that Newsstand won't go in a folder.

That got me a little bit, but I'm over it now.

It barely finds anything I want it to find when searching. Does it only search for a small limited time?

Have you tried using the home screen search?
