    Realistic or not. Go for it.

    1. Support multiple simultaneous apps in a windowed fashion.
    2. Common filesystem access
    3. Chrome + 3rd party browsers
    4. Password protect acess to apps
    5. Guest user capability.
    6. Upload files from browser.
    7. Better keyboard when editing text to move up down left right.

    Will try and attach a poll later with the most popular requests.

    Great ideas from others


    1. Proper tabbed browsing
    2. A youtube app that takes less than 15mins to d/l a 1min clip! For the love of god
    3. Google maps with many more features than currently available, brought in line with the blackberry google maps for example (sign in..layers..voice search...starred locations..)
    4. More robust wi fi connections
    5. Expose for apps currently running from homescreen (gesture..)

    6.Safari reader.

    7. Better, less obtrusive notifications: I hate it when I'm watching a video only to have it interrupted with a big blue dialog box in the middle of the screen!

    8.Cloud based syncing of app data, universal apps pick up on the iPhone right where you left off... (would obviously be a developer option)

    9. Option to kill all backgrounded apps in one go.

    10. Swipe gestures.

    11. Flash.

    Other ahem good ideas

    Rainbows n unicorns
    Make all iOS problem threads go away
    To be able to make me nespresso in the morning.

    As for 1 and 2, I don't see any reason why the iPad needs to operate like a regular computer. iOS is trying to take us to a different plane of computing that is BEYOND the metaphor of windows and typical filesystem access. It's not exactly clear what other metaphor can be used but thus far, iOS is successful. Yes, I do agree that some form of filesystem access is useful within the model of computing we're using but there might be another way to handle this. In other words, can we find a way where increasingly computers handle the file management stuff while we just worry about the content of the files?

    I think password protected app is a good idea. This way, I can lend someone the iPad without worrying they'd peek through my email.

    Doesn't have to be windowed as long as I can view live tv/video while checking mail/ surfing

    Filesystem mainly because I don't want my files from wuala, pages, notes etc to reside in islands by themselves. I should be able to use compatible apps to open them from a single location and all my apps should be able to access files regardless of whether they reside locally or in the cloud.

    Some type of common files system (or other equally workable solution) so I can do things like attach multiple different files to an e-mail rather than sending multiple e-mails etc.

    Support for usb drives so I can get files on and off the device when traveling without having to use e-mail/cloud and have access to a computer.

    I don't expect to get any of that. I've pretty much accepted that the iPad is just going to be a fun toy for me, and I'll have to wait for MS or someone else to put out a tablet that's closer to a computer so I can actually do my work on it when traveling etc.

    And nothing wrong with that! I love it as a multimedia gadget, news reader, web surfer etc. and just stick with my laptop when traveling for work and leave the iPad at home.

    I'd love to have a tablet with the stuff above, MS office etc. as they're so much thinner and lighter to travel with than even a netbook (and I can't justify buying a netbook since I don't travel all that often and wouldn't use it at home). But there's no tablet out currently that I could do the work I need to do while traveling on, and I doubt any will come out any time soon as they're all focused on being iPad like personal use devices for the time being.

    Wish #1: It will be something that everyone will be mostly happy with, so we don't have dozens of threads over and over complaining about what iOS 5 doesn't have.

    Wish #2: It will let people accomplish the tasks they think they need a file system for, without having a filesystem (as commonly conceived).

    I'm not sure which one is less realistic.

    Some better or alternate multitasking would be nice. I had to switch between stuff a lot last night, and double-tapping the home button and then selecting the app was kind of a lot of "work" to do. Using a keyboard, perhaps SHIFT-COMMAND-TAB could be an option. I guess some three-finger swipe could work as well.

    It would also be nice if FUNCTION-DELETE on the Apple wireless keyboard worked to delete items to the cursor's right in iOS like it does on Mac OS. Didn't happen in Pages for me.

    You missed out the one thing I really hope iOS 5 brings: Better, less obtrusive notifications: I hate it when I'm watching a video only to have it interrupted with a big blue dialog box in the middle of the screen!

    yeah, I would have to vote for better notifications too, along with more multitouch gestures like those in the dev build, and like someone else said a more expose like alternative to multitasking. And it know it would be hard to implement, but a more multi-user friendly ipad would be nice. Our ipad is considered the 'family' ipad and usually sits in the kitchen, it's a pain having to log in/out of facebook, email, etc.

    Some really great ideas. Does anyone know if the mods can reset or modify the poll for me?

    What I want in iOS 5 is a feature that is in chrome were when you highlight something and then right click there's a option to search for what you highlighted this can be down on the iPad just like copy and paste is done
