This week I’m asking a question that’s bound to get you scratching your head! After using the new OS in everyday life for several months now, what is your favourite feature on the iPad?
I have to admit that using iOS 5 on my iPad hasn’t been exactly as I expected; I haven’t really used some of the features that I thought might prove to be most significant, and I’ve used features I’d barely considered a lot!
One thing that I’m absolutely loving with iOS 5 on the iPad is the access it gives you to multitasking gestures, I find myself rarely even pressing the Home button anymore – except for unlocking purposes! I love the four-finger swiping gestures to bring up the multitasking bar, and for switching immediately between apps. It makes moving back and forth between two apps effortlessly easy and surprisingly seamless.
I also love wireless synching, Notification Center, and the new version of Safari – although I wish they would allow other apps to interact with it, I’m desperate for an integrated 1Password solution…
What have you found to be your absolute favourite new feature? Has tabbed Safari browsing given it the edge, or are you loving reminders?
It’d be great if you’d take the time to comment below and tell us why you chose the feature you did, and whether it was something you expected to be your favourite!

It’s Christmas Eve, do you already know what lurks under the tree?
I’m intrigued as to how many people will be getting iPads during this festive season, are you getting one? Are you here to get the inside track on the apps you should be downloading when that joyous moment comes?
Perhaps you know someone who’s getting an iPad, maybe you’re the generous giver?
It’s got to be one of the more extravagant and exceptional gifts you could hope to receive, was it on your wish list?
This week I’m pleased to have had the chance to interview Dennis Lee, PlayUp’s U.S. Head of Product. PlayUp is a new app that touts itself as the first global social network dedicated to live sport. It features live scores for more than 20,000 games a year and connects all of the live action to you and your friends, allowing you to message one another in Real Time – for Free!
What better time to hear about PlayUp and the idea behind it than now, ahead of the gluttony of holiday sports events!
I have a slight regret about my iPad 2.
I bought a 16GB without hesitation but have found myself wishing, on more than one occasion, that I’d splashed out and grabbed a 32GB or 64GB instead. With myriad apps available and the incredible potential of the iPad to be the perfect portable media player, there is so much more I could do with that extra space!
I’m intrigued to see what AppStorm readers have, do they tend towards splashing out or sticking with the standard?
How much storage does your iPad have?
This poll has a secondary question that I’d love you to remark on in the comments! Is the extra expense worth it?
It costs a significant amount more to get that bonus storage space in your iPad, is the extra utility worth the cash? As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts – simply post a comment below!
