    Im not sure if this was just me thinking I heard about this, or actually reading about this being a new feature in iOS 5, but I thought for the new update there would be background downloading for apps. For instance, when I go to download an app it doesn't take me to the home screen, it would remain on the install page and I could just stay in the app store. Really wish it was a feature.

    Do you know where I might be able to enable this feature? I am running the GM. Thanks for the link.
