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!
