What is that app that lets you transfer files via bluetooth? No jailbreak.

the still missing list, it's not that hard to accomplish that, why does apple keep on making its users wait, giving them other features!

"The content will become available on all of yours iDevices automagically."

This is funny. It almost looks as though you misspelled the last word on purpose. Hahahaha.. Love iOS 5!

Is there a file transfer (mass storage mode) available finally? If not then why isn't it noted in "still missing"?

What a hopeless OS - No Flash support, No Heptic feedback and not even proper codec support for playing Vids - What kind of idiot will fall into this trap ?

•App folders still are limited to 12 apps tops

There's good reason for this, it's made thatway to see apps with one glance and no need for browsing apps to find what you needed. I don't think thats never going to chance.

"You can restore your iGadget from iCloud, but first you need to connect it through iTunes, perform a standard restore procedure (downloading and reinstalling the iOS) and then chose the iCloud restore option." I don t understand so is my igadget completetely free from my computer or not??

Mass storage mode and USB-on-the-GO, if not then iOS is not very userfriendly at all?!

Nice overloaded list of (non) features where small changes (Music icon) get a bullet in the list.
