    I just bought a new iPod Touch 4G White 32GB obviously with iOS 5 installed. Anyway as I was using it I discovered a few bugs that I hope get addressed soon.

    -Sometimes touchscreen doesn't respond to my touch I have to tap it a few times for it to work.
    -When the iPod is locked and I double click the home button to change the song it pauses the first song, then changes which is really annoying because music just pauses for a second.
    -When I unlock the iPod sometimes it gets a bit stuck at the home screen for a second.
    -When in the music app and I want to change the song it may take a bit to change.

    If I find any more issues I'll update you guys. Really hope something is done about this.

    :)

    iOS 5 is running great on my 3rd Gen iPod Touch. I notice it is faster. The only thing I would like to be able to is to turn off the useless newstand icon.

    Thank you for posting this. I am experiencing the same thing on my 64GB 4G iPod Touch.

    Hahah no worries. Is anyone experiencing different problems? I haven't had access to wifi so I couldn't really test out the other features in iOS 5

    I don't think those bugs are necessarily related to iOS 5. I have had some of those prior to iOS 5.

    For quite some time now, my 32GB 4G Touch has been acting weird. Playing music or in an app, I push the home button once and half the time it will bring up multitasking. Other times I push home button twice and sometimes nothing happens, sometimes it closes the app, although most of the time it brings up multitasking. Quite often pushing the home button will not wake it up to the unlock screen, or if I'm in an app, it sometimes will not close it.

    It did this long before iOS 5 and it is still doing it.

    In my case it only started after installing iOS 5.

    I just bought the same exact model and haven't noticed any bugs. If I do I'll let you know.

    I had similar problems on my 3rd gen Touch and noticed that weather and stocks were enabled on the new notifications. I went to settings -> notifications and turned off weather and stocks and my Touch now behaves as it should. When I turn off all notifications, my Touch actually seems much faster then it used to be.

    iPod touch 4Th generation running iOS 5 is way faster except for cover-flow in music, that is slow and laggy. I put newsstand on the last page....alone. Also I only have the weather widget in my notification bar. Also last thing my battery life is so much improved.

    I have the 32GB 4th Gen touch as well and I'm experiencing the exact same problems. If you go to the usage and statistics settings under General > About you can see all the error reports that your iPod is sending to Apple. A lot of the errors for me are low memory errors. Perhaps Apple has some memory optimization work to do for 5.1 eh?

    iPod touch 4th generation iOS 5 text input is very delayed when first opening Safari. My battery life is actually worse I've cycled the battery and done a clean install still about 45 minutes to an hour less browsing and app usage. All notifications are off, spotlight off, and widgets off.

    I have an iPod touch 4g, and some things run really smooth like opening apps, but some are really laggy like closing apps, or typing. Also, the screen, sometimes, does not respond.

    I'm experiencing the same problems (iPod Touch 4G 32GB)...moreover I noticed the coverflow is slow and apps like Facebook and youtube (default app) are a bit laggy (youtube for example sometimes doesn't scroll the video forward because it doesn't recognize my tap , I suppose it is caused by the new notification center on the top of the screen) Finally my notification center's response is delayed when I open it for the first time.

    me too
    please tell me someone else is experiencing the same problems

    Yes I'm also experiencing the low memory problem. I took a screen shot of it. Btw, I just typed this on my iPod, and it was pretty laggy.

    Last night (a day or more after upgrading to 5) I started getting the split keyboard bug on my iPad 2.

    Need it to be fixed soon....tough to type emails or web comments. :(

    I wish you could install more RAM in the iPod touch.

    ----------

    Have you cleared your multitasking bar? I also got the memory free app ($0.99) which frees up some RAM for me. I usually run it once or twice a day.

    Yeah I notice too ... Safari crash more often on my iPod after iOS 5. I bet it's due to low memory. Dang Apple must've forgotten ipod touch n iPad 1 only has 256MB :p

    Yep, I experienced those issues as well. The fix is to close apps in the multitasking bar; not a biggie but still a bug that hopefully will be fixed in a next iOS update.
    The new iOS 5 features are working great.
