    My opinion expressed here is not intended to encourage anyone to experiment with beta software. That being said. I absolutely love iOS 4.2 beta 3! Yea, some of my apps do not work but most do. Yea, AirPrint does not operate yet.

    I have created folders, renamed them, multitasking works or app switching as I like to call it. I now have all (around 70) apps on one screen. That's cool.

    I can hardly wait for the next email from Apple notifying me that iOS 4.2 beta 4 is available for download. I believe that when iOS 4.2 is finally available to the public you will love it too.

    I agree with you the 4.2 (B2 or B3) it’s amazing i will not return in 3 dot something … i also can wait the final release … my self i don’t get any app’s crash , i think is many app’s are already update but i guess all will be update for the final release … the only one things i hope apple will give us is the storage possibility .. ( i know i know i dream :D )

    Can wait only have Kobo on mine I do not need or want any other applications so I do not need folders. For me iPad = Good eBook reader and a fair movie player even though the device is not wide screen Other than that it is useless.

    I am trying to retire my Dell Precision T3400 with this thing. So far so good. Once I get a double sided traction ledger up and running I'll be there.

    I have tried the Kobo app (well actually the Borders app which is exactly the same thing) and the Nook app from Barnes & Noble, but for content, you just can't beat Amazon. Another reader you might want to try is called GoodReader. It cost a whopping 99¢ and give you access to some other content sellers as well as several free content providers, including Project Gutenberg with over 33,000 titles.

    And back on topic... I am on 4.2 beta3 and I am only looking forward, not backwards!

    Thanks, the wallpaper will be there next month. It is part of the 4.2 iOS update that's coming. Apple added a few more wallpapers.

    The beta is....okay at best. Nothing worth getting excited about. Good thing I now have a second iPad to play around with it.

    4.2b3 has its bugs as well....just nothing really major.

    2 Questions.

    I guess 4.2 Betas are not jailbreakable right?
    Can I upgrade to 4.2Beta 3 and then downgrade to 3.2.1 and re-jailbreak?

    Installed beta 3 last night. Only having issues with two apps: Bible HD still crashes and NYT won't pop up a keyboard when registering.

    I have not tried AirPrint because it also requires a beta version of OSX and iTunes and my development machine is offsite....can't risk playing with beta OS on the main iMac we use for work.

    Remote works flawlessly with Apple TV. MobileMe configuration was a little iffy....took some playing around to get it verify my account. Google calendar and contacts crashed...but I have MobileMe is much smoother anyway.

    I'm happy with it.

    Hmm. I think "Winnie-the-pooh" may have a problem with the latest beta. I cannot open the book any more. It's allways saying that resources were missing.
    Didn't have that with beta2 or 3.2.

    Uzu will not work and freezes the iPad for a few minutes then works but at .5 FPS.
    Bible HD crashes back to Desktop....

    Not impressed at all.

    Let's not forget that most iPad apps were written for 3.2.2. There are new things in 4.2 that can cause issues with some apps. That being said, so far the only app that has failed me is UZU, and only since their latest update.

    I'm using Bible HD by YouVersion as I prefer the NIV translation and they have really nice study tools including daily reading plans. I hope it's fixed by the production release.
