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!
We’re having a quick poll today, so take a mere few seconds of your time and enlighten me! Do you think that the integration of Twitter into iOS 5 was a good idea?
Is it beautifully forward-thinking of Apple, or slightly short sighted? Are they tying themselves to the success, and failure, of another company unnecessarily?
Do you use Twitter integration on a regular basis, does it actually enhance the use of your iPad? I, personally, have a feeling that it’ll be incredible for Twitter in the long run, adding huge reams of regular users to its service – although I don’t see the benefits for Apple as being that great…
It’d be awesome if you’d also leave your thoughts below, tell me why you think it is, or isn’t, a good idea?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks, you’ll know that Apple released the fifth version of their iOS operating system for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad this week. This latest version is, arguably, their biggest update since version two which introduced native apps. So what does this mean for iPad users? Read on to find out the big new features along with five of my top tips for getting the most out of your iPad with iOS 5…
Perhaps it’s a little premature to ask this now, but I can’t hold back – I’m fascinated to know what your favourite feature of iOS 5 is?
It’s been available for just over three days, and gives iPad owners access to some incredible extra features – several of which are vying for the prestigious label of best new feature! Will it be iMessage, or will Newsstand prove an immensely beautiful experience on the iPad?
AppStorm readers are notoriously discerning when it comes to apps, will Reminders even get a look-in considering the wealth of incredible task apps available to every iPad owner? How does the location aware feature work in reality?
Is it something other than the big hitters that really floats your boat? Perhaps the addition of multitasking gestures on the iPad makes a huge difference for you…
Get involved with the poll and be sure to leave a comment and enter discussion, especially if you’ve chosen other on the list!
