    Same here, it's all good so far, including a few improvements I hadn't read about, the browser coping better on pages with loads of images, reloading pages when switching windows for example.

    So far the only negative is the orientation loch button switching to the swiped task panel, though having the screen brightness there is a nice bonus too

    10/10 then so far

    Took a little while to get everything nicely into folders, but now my springboard is down to just 2 Pages.

    So far, it's working great for me.

    Ay, you have to watch that "orientation loch". Can be a bit foggy and murky this time of year and you might come across old Nessy.

    You're not the only one

    I think it really delivers on the promise of the device. Quick app switching and AirPlay are both really welcome additions, as is the unified inbox, searching inside Safari pages, and so on and so forth. It's also a slew of fixes that make my iPad experience better all around: it's great to have Safari able to keep a handful of pages open without constantly reloading, and it's nice to see the number of pages open indicated in Safari's toolbar again.

    Still waiting on my update to download--22 minutes left.

    I had MAJOR problems getting this ish going, at first the update wouldn't recognize iPad, then I reverted to 10.0.1 and it wouldn't update correctly (error 732 I believe) so then I uninstalled everything for a 3rd freaking time and reinstalled 10.1...it recognized the iPad (thank god!) and is now downloading.

    I'm awaiting it's finish and install. I'll let you guys know how it goes :eek:

    Love it so far. Only issue I am having is with airplay. When trying to play music from iPad to apple tv it lags pretty good time to time. :(

    If you got apps you want to put in a folder, drag one onto another.

    For multitasking, double tap the home button. Whatever you have running will show up in the grey space you see.
    Swipe to see more...swipe to the right (page goes to left) to reveal orientation lock, ipod controls and brightness control.


    iPad update went well this time (after 3 tries, lol)

    Everything went into folders just fine and she's asleep now awaiting her trip for Thanksgiving Show and Tell :p

    Let me just say I LOVE this forum!:D

    I am absolutely loving this update. Makes the iPad a very capable device. My only complaint is that the AIM app still has to reconnect every time you open it, even when doing fast app switching (multitasking). Does anyone know if this can be addressed in a future update, or if it is a restriction of the API's allowed to run in the background?

    Double click the home button and you'll see a list of your open applications. Hold down to get the option to close them out, or just leave them as the OS does a good job of managing resources.

    Swipe to the right to get access to orientation lock, brightness, and volume controls.

    [Edit - Someone beat me to it]

    I like the new features...but, the iPad doesn't show any updates available in the App Store even though iTunes on the PC lists 6 updates. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    My Printer doesn't support AirPrint, but I installed the AirPrint Hacktivator (FREE!!!) and now it prints great! So far I have printed from Pages and iAnnotate.

    Very happy overall. My only gripe is that music video playlists still don't work. Seriously, its on iPhone now. Has been for years.

    HP eprint compatible?

    How do I know my HP printer is AirPrint compatible? I have the HP OfficeJet 8500 Wireless. I have it wirelessly connected to my router. Any ideas?

    An idea - consult Apple's website - http://www.apple.com/ipad/features/airprint.html

    Looks like the Officejet is not supported, though there are programs out there you can install to enable the functionality you're looking for.

    It's crazy how fast my iPad works now. There is no lag whatsoever in any app, including games. AWESOME UPDATE. :)
