Just wondering how it is running on your iPad 2. Do you see a difference in battery or anything else? My games have become more pixilated since the update which is really bothering me and I find it to be an odd issue.

No difference in battery on my iPad. My battery lasts longer on my 4S on 5.1 !!!

Biggest improvement for me is there is little to no delay when typing! 5.1 was good for me!

I haven't noticed a difference on my iPad 2, but the battery life on my iPhone 4 has been dramatically improved.

Havent noticed much of a change all around. I think the only real feature of 5.1 is adding the camera slider to the phone. I can't believe they added a whole .1 just for one slider function on the home screen! ;)

I held off on 5.0 and 5.0.1, and went directly to 5.1. It works great, no issues. One thing I really like is the 4 or 5 finger grab back to home page. It will save on wear and tear on the home button, and it's very natural, and faster than hitting the home button if your hand is already on the glass.

Didn't know they had this gesture .... will have to try this on The New iPad that shows up Friday (sold my old iPad already the other day)

So if you are in a game or anything etc. you take all 5 fingers and get it to the home screen or just when your in the iOS browsing this will work?

Thank you. I didn't know about this feature until now :D

It's been baked in since iOS 4. I had it then and loved it. Was able to install it with a dev tool. Everyone got it in ios 5.
