    Just to put in some observations..

    My pictures were able to sync, however I have somewhere around 200, so perhaps the amount of pictures has something to do with it.

    The dictionary is working very well now, to include words typed by the user in the SMS field (something I hadn't seen functioning yet).

    Things are working much smoother and snappier, with the exception of the jerky scrolling that occurs when you scroll slowly (saw this mentioned earlier) and the laggy text input in Safari (such as for this post).

    Also, I'm noticing that every time I'm sending a text message, it always says "Sending message 2 of 2." This may be unique to me, however, so I'll try restarting to see if it fixes it.

    Lastly, this may just be because I skipped out on beta 3 and wasn't accost accustomed to the beta battery life for a week or two - but the battery seems to be draining a tad bit quicker. I don't see a setting I've left on that could possibly affect it and usage isn't equal to standby (something I know plagued some users in beta 1).

    Can anyone confirm if the following apps work?

    1. WeatherPro
    2. Dropbox
    3. Photoforge2
    4. Web Albums

    Also, is battery life as bad as beta 1 before I install beta 4.

    Many thanks.

    The only app I use from above is Dropbox and it appears to be working fine.

    As for battery life, it was pretty good in Beta 3, and it appears to be good (so far) in Beta 4...

    One thing that I see is still in the Beta4 is that apps still crash the first time they're launched following a reset. The second time you try, the apps launch and run... not mentioned as an issue (or a fix) in the release notes.

    EDIT/UPDATE: And for full disclosure, this WAS an item listed in the release notes for Beta 3... but it's not been fixed in Beta 4... and no mention of it at all in release notes for Beta 4.

    One more update from the release notes... it appears that clearing the badge count will also remove the Notification screen entry. If this works the way I think it does, it's a sweet update:

    Push and local notifications for apps appear in the new Notification Center in iOS 5. Notification Center displays notifications that are considered "unread. In order to accommodate push and local notifications that have no "unread" status, developers can use their application badge count to trigger a clearing of notifications from Notification Center. When an application clears its badge count (by setting it to zero), iOS 5 will clear its notifications from Notification Center.

    Bluetooth Media Streaming seems to be skipping and sorta pausing for a second. Noticed while driving. If I open/close the phone the music is skipping. If I open an app the music skips. Overall bad skipping experience in the new beta.

    Yep, I noticed this with the Real Racing game on my iPad 2.

    Btw, re Netflix. I uninstall, re-installed it on the pad, and was able to play streams again.

    I currently have Netflix 1.4.0 build 930547, but now the app store tells me there is a new version, but it's version 1.3.0. I'll keep 1.4.
    This......to get Netflix working. I followed your post, and finally Netflix is working again.

    Netflix was not working for me either (hasn't worked on any ios 5 beta build yet). I deleted the netflix app, then reinstalled it via app store, and it's now working... Sweet!!

    UPDATE: It looks like the install of iTunes didn't take. The installer shows a different version number than the current version of iTunes. Running the installer a second time.

    old ------------------------
    updated to beta 4 of iTunes for Windows (64bit) and an OTA update to iOS5 beta 4, synced with iTunes 2 or 3 times, still no WiFi Sync feature available within iTunes in the Summery section for my iPhone.
    Same here.Loaded Beta 4 OTA no problem, iTunes for Windows updated to Beta 4,good to go,but no Wi-Fi sync

    Something else I've noticed is that springboard seems to be crashing every once in a while when notifications come in (I've noticed it with emails and SMSs). Doesn't happen too often (maybe 2-3 times total so far), and the springboard generally restarts in about 7 seconds, so it doesn't bother me much.

    Sorted the photo album bug - this version of iTunes (not necessarily iOS) no longer recognizes nested folders. It will sync all your folders as long as they contain photos, but not other folders containing folders (although it used to work just fine this way).

    Moved all my folders out of the parent directories, and all is fine now.

    Did I at one point read something about iCloud syncing not working again? It keeps telling me my password is correct, but my device is not authorized to use iCloud.

    Ok...this is getting stranger and stranger. Not only can I no longer access iCloud syncing, but my WiFi sync has stopped. As soon as I unplug my phone from my Mac the connection is gone.

    Gonna try installing iTunes again.

    *****

    Update - reinstalling got wireless sync working again. Still at a loss about iCloud sync though.

    I have the issue to where it will not sync over wifi. It sync's fine (except no photo's) plugged into the computer. Yes all the correct boxes are checked both on the phone and the PC. The only thing I can think of is that it's because my computer doesn't have a wifi card. It's connected to the router by a cable. I will dig out a spare wifi card tomorrow and see if that's the reason.

    At this point I am pretty sure it's feature complete, maybe next beta at the latest. Now it's time to fix the outstanding bugs.
