    I only have two devices to test on and neither one I'm comfortable with upgrading to iOS 5 beta. Should I just wait till iOS 5 releases before addressing issues? How are other indie developers anticipating the new release?

    Just use the iOS 5 sdk and rework your apps. What's there to be afraid of? You have two.

    Use TestFlight and get a bunch of people who are anxious to take the new os for a spin test your app. They'll fall all over themselves for the opportunity.

    Don't believe everything you hear about iOS 5. On beta 7, I have 1 app out of 96 that crashes when I try to do something. That's not to say everything is iOS 5 compatible, but I'd say that's pretty good. Also, the OS is extremely stable. Aside from some music app issues (which are stated in the release notes), I really haven't had any problems.

    Alli is right, though. TestFlight is a great way to test apps, and it's free. PM me if you'd like, I'd be glad to help you out.

    The Beta has been really stable for me since B1!

    It's B7 now, it's practically GM. Get testing. If you're that scared, buy a 3rd gen iPod touch off someone on kijiji for $100 (to help test for backwards compatibility) and use that. The Beta is really stable though, you have nothing to worry about.
