The HP Touchpad has something similar to this,all Pre business pops up on the TouchPad screen when the phone is put on the charger at home.

This.

They say it's like Instapaper, but I haven't seen anyone mention if it saves the articles for when you don't have signal and / or WiFi.

I don't know but they should really change (or add) the ability to adjust brightness in the same fashion. I hardly ever adjust volume this way as i'ts much quicker to just hit the buttons. I'd really like the ability to adjust the brightness!

When you slide to answer a text the sound of the text is cut off, previously in iOS 4 and lower it would continually play through especially if JB and you had longer sounding messages.

Also when you click on something and it makes the selection blue when you let go it fades away, when it used to just cut back to the white color without fading. url's in the we browser fade out instead of just being cut off.

In SMS / iMessage - pull down on the keyboard to make it disappear and have full screen messages. Love this.

Is SMS character count broken for anyone else? It'll only show up for me if I enable the subject field.

It only shows up if you type more than 60 or 70 characters (I could be wrong on the number but the point still stands).

I'm not sure if it has been implemented since I do not have iOS 5, but I want to be able to access recent webpages visited by holding the back button in Safari. Anybody care to check?

Just checked, nope it's not there. It wasn't in any of the beta's either, so doesn't look like there was ever any plan to implement it.

Thanks for checking. It works this way on Desktop Safari, but not Mobile. I'm not sure why they don't implement the feature.

Really liking the GM on my iPhone 4, been rock solid and butter smooth so far, but I wish wish WISH there were gestures enabled simply due to the unreliability of the home button. 3rd iPhone under warranty here since launch and already the home button is flakey - cant be bothered returning this one as the problem always comes back it seems . Everyone I know with the 4 has same issue.

The gestures wouldn't work on the iPhone screen, you cannot comfortably do the 5 finger pinch to home screen and 3 fingers or less are given to devs for apps.

I had no trouble using gestures under jailbroken iOS 4. It's different, but it's not that bad. Unfortunately, Apple doesn't believe in "not that bad".

I'll second that, never had an issue with mine.

Ok, this leads me to believe they don't think it's necessary on the iPhone. They would have done it on both if they did.

  • It seems that Reminders sync with Exchange (Tasks basically), but you canít set location-based reminders if youíre on Exchange, just with iCloud. You can selectively choose where to sync the reminder.

How do you do this?

I've had the same problem on my 3GS of late. See if you like using Assistive Touch. I didn't think I would, but it's actually grown on me and has massively helped get around my ********* home button.

That's interesting, didn't know about that, cheers.

To the others who've had zero problems with their home button - lucky you! Everyone I know irl has intermittent issues ie 2 presses don't register sometimes, 1 press might throw the multitasking bar, 1 or 2 press does nothing. If you think just because you haven't experienced it, it doesn't exist, think again - Apple have exchanged mine for a new one with no argument each time I've took mine, surely a sign, and there's lots of threads/responses talking about it.

As for gestures, a 4 finger swipe up gesture is simple enough on even an iPhone screen, it's only horizontal swipes that are arguably a bit janky due to screen size.

I can't do 4 fingers for swiping up, tho it is easier horizontally, but you cannot do the 5 finger pinch to home screen. The only way you can do them all comfortably is with a bigger screen, so no chance until then.

It doesn't, it's basically a bookmark folder. No internet = you can't read your reading list.
