So I've been beta testing iOS 5 for two days now and I have to be honest...there are no significant front end changes and I feel very underwhelmed. The notifications are great and, to me, that's the only noticeable change in every day use. Prior to the keynote, most rumors had iOS 5 being a huge leap forward with many analysts predicting a complete overhaul of the OS...that is definitely NOT the case. This is still very much the same [stale] OS that we've been using for 4 years with some incremental improvements. iCloud is great but I wouldn't call it revolutionary and, honestly, most people won't even notice it. Even the one significant improvement (notifications) isn't as good as it should be being that there are no icons shown in the status bar and that notifications don't show up in the lock screen if they arrive while the phone is on. I understand this is an early beta and things could change but, at this point, I truly feel the OS is as stale as it was last week and I'm somewhat disappointed that this is what Apple spent more than a full year developing. I'm sure I'll get some negative feedback from Apple enthusiasts on the forum but I just wanted to give some honest feedback and my initial impression to this community. I'm curious how other developers/users who are testing the OS feel.
