Very impressed with the update, easily best version of iOS to date.
-Multi-tasking vastly improved, much easier to flick away apps to close them than to awkwardly tap X's in the top left corner for minutes on end
-At a glance and quick settings much appreciated. Like the torch and calculator being added as well
-Keyboard feels easier to type on, I think there is more space now between the keys, not entirely sure!

Apple need to get their App store apps into gear now like iWork, iLife, Podcasts, iTunes U and make them flat design like iOS 7.

-I like the Notification Centre update for iTunes, don't need a third party application now (I'm a minimalist, have as few applications as possible!)
-Repair permissions shows lots of errors for the iTunes application, even after doing new install. Doesn't affect application, but not good to see
-Podcasts seriously gets messed up with trying to sync, was alright in iTunes 11.0.4

I've noticed it seems a bit snappier with the supplemental update?!

I love this app, syncs nicely to my iPhone and Safari extension plays nicely with the main App.

Only complaint I have is that I live in the UK, and some of the options on the wallet are very United States centric. For example, my bank has a sort code, I can't find an option for that.

I've noticed that signal has improved since update (on O2 network in UK). Also, notifications is vastly improved and less intrusive than before.

iCloud seems a bit fiddly, but once it's up and running, it's fantastic and works seamlessly in the background.

iMessages - don't have many other friends who use it (maybe they haven't updated to iOS 5 yet), but works like a charm.

Other little things, weather hourly forecast, camera on lock screen - worhty update overall!

Did a clean install, so took a little longer to get everything up and running.

A day later, seems to be running very smoothly, driver seems to have been released for HP printer, M-Audio Fast Track Pro has Lion drivers, and all my other apps seem to be working fine.

Only problem I have is, what to do with the menu button on my Apple Remote, now that the removal of Front Row has made it redundant (I'm guessing Apple wants to ship more Apple TV's and iPad's).

Just noticed 4.1 is out, and it's free...
[Version 4.0.2]

Surely this should show as a Hot pick on Macupdate? It's one of the most widely used email clients, behind Outlook. Not that I actually enjoy using this at work, it's cumbersome and has annoying traits and habits).

However, the latest version is vastly improved over version 5 I used before and seems more stable.

I got into Apple products with the Mac Mini and the iPod Touch, great little bits of kit. I had a very high opinion of Apple.

I then got an iPhone 3G

iOS 4.0 on the iPhone 3G stank.

iOS 4.1 seems to have fixed most of the problems. No more delay in typing. Angry Birds runs with almost no lag and stuttering. I can't comment on the 3GS and iPhone 4 as I don't have one! Game Centre and the new fancy HDR photo thingy will have to be left to other people to comment on!

Hoping 4.2 brings more performance improvements and is not a repetition of 4.0!

Well, I've been waiting a while to install this on my iPhone 3G, mostly for the ability to organise Apps into folders. Also, held very faint hopes it might improve on some of the sluggishness from the 3xx OS. Not a chance, if anything, it's more sluggish.

This update is more for iPhone 3GS users than 3G users. It's making me seriously consider getting an iPhone 4.

It's a 4 rating for the improvements in folders, I like all my Apps on one screen. However, I think some users may rate it lower. Thank you as well Apple for making this update free of charge.
