But once you've upgraded to iOS5 you'll never need to use it again!!!
I've been looking forward to that. But from what I can tell (and I may be very confused) I'll have to rely on iCloud in its place. And I simply haven't had the time or patience to tell if my life will improve in that case. Am I hopelessly confused here?

Kaykaykay said:Yes, I'm wondering about this, too.
I've just updated two of three iPads to iOS 5 and have wasted time unscrambling apps that iTunes or the cloud scrambled for no apparent reason. One iPad was scrambled, another was only partly scrambled. I'd synched and backed up both to iTunes before upgrading. If iTunes were a piÃ±ata, I'd happily take a stick to it.

If there was an equally-powerful Android version of the aviation program that I needed this for in the first place, I'd be outta here so fast the air would crackle. Android pads are cheaper and if you plug one into any computer with a USB port, it thinks the Android is a drive -- you don't have to load software (which can be a problem on a shared computer, school computer, work computer, library computer, friend's computer, computer running non-Apple or non-Windoze OS, older computer without a lot of empty drive space, etc).
iTunes is an obstacle between the computer and the iPad, turning a simple, 1-minute task into five minutes worth of administrative annoyance. I am so disgusted with it that I will not buy another Apple product which can't be seen as a plug-and-play drive on a computer that has no special software.
