    Here are some of mine ...

    1. Not able to delete useless contacts in mail app

    2. Not able to close all open apps at once

    3. No manual settings for equalizer in the music app, all presets settings are worse than the "off" preset

    4. No quick turning bluetooth on/off

    5. Safari is a little better but still "basic" browser

    6. Why not displaying the date next to the clock on top of the screen

    Haven't loaded it yet. I was raised to believe good things are worth waiting for. :)

    Well, I'm really not sure why you're "disappointed". None of those features or improvements was promised or even rumored to be available in iOS 5 (with the possible exception of Safari which was improved). Sounds more like this should be titled "A wish list for future upgrades".

    That said, the email auto-fill issue has been around since the first iPhone and I think everyone agrees that it should be easy to edit.

    Closing all apps at once would be a valuable feature.

    My biggest disappointment with iOS 5 was the "downgrading" of the iPod App to the Music App. There's another thread discussing that on the forum so no need to go into it here. However suffice it to say that the Music App is a true disappointment IMHO.

    Agreed Richsadams

    I would like to see date at the top as well.

    Closing all apps at once would be nice.

    I'd like multi gestures on iPad 1 as a default not have to go in the back door

    I'd like notifications the same on iPad as well as the iPhone.

    Let Apple Know!

    If anyone wants to make their thoughts known about iOS 5 or or have suggestions for future iPad software or hardware, be sure to use Apple's Feedback form:

    Forgot about the original iPad not getting Multitasking Gestures as well as AirPlay Mirroring. That was disappointing indeed. :(

    I really dislike the tabbed browsing for the iPad. I would never have upgraded if I knew I would lose the thumbnails.

    () Overall weakness of the email app. No "select all." No mass delete based on search. etc. I didn't really expect the email app to be upgraded but it would be nice.
    () Abduction of my New Yorker subscription by the Apple version of Publishers Clearing House (i.e. "Newsstand.")
    () The introduction of iCloud has only made the weaknesses and confusion associated with iTunes (and the associated App Store) even more obvious. A complete rewrite is required.

    I'd have a little more faith in that feedback mechanism if "iOS 5" were listed as an operating system option.
