    Quite frankly, I am not impressed. For starters, despite doing a backup before installing iOS5, I have lost more than half of my apps which has annoyed me tremendously. I will have to start all over again. I don't find the overall "improvements" as fantastic as some will try to make you believe. The only thing I find useful is that the ipad no longer requires a computer for updates, a computer in its own right albeit limited compared to a laptop or desktop PC. I hope I change my opinion as I get acquainted with the new system but for now... yuk!

    You mentioned performing a backup, but I wondered whether you synchronised your iPad and PC before updating to iOS5?

    A total rip-off for Ipad 1. They've made it seem like an obsolete old slug without the gestures compared with 2 .
    Cynical marketing ploy?
    If you had the gestures via Xcode you will miss them terribly as I do.
    Shame on you Apple!

    Maybe you should have waited for reviews before you updated. Sorry you don't like it!

    i'm really happy with imessege and news stand.
    the notification center is okay, but no widget support like iphone and ipod touch, which is dissapointing.
    was looking forward to gestures, but apple had to be sneaky little buggers didn't they? haha

    all in all if it wasn't for imessage and news stand i would have been happier with my jailbroken 4.3.
    kinda half regret updating.

    will be much better once an untethered jailbreak is announced.

    I can not verify icloud account. On Ipad settings under icloud said check your email for instructions to verify this accoung.Account not verified. Never received email to verify. Tried my Apple account and it would not verify either. Need to retreve backup. I also lost all o fmy apps and though icloud backup would fix the problem.
    Any ideas
    Thanks
    Tom

    not a bad upgrade but i can't figure out how to get location notifications working. Maybe iPad 1 wifi doesn't support it? does anyone know for sure?

    I think I'll stick to my plan and wait out this upgrade for a little while. Im very happy with the way my 4.3.5 iPad2 works. I do like some of the features in iOS5 but there isnt anything I must have at this point.

    Location notifications were disabled for everything except the iPhone 4

    Apparently the geo fence does not work on other devices.

    Yes tim, I did. I'm in the process of reinstalling some of the apps I remember.
