    Okay so maybe I am completely out of my mind but these are the things that appear to have been not delivered in this release of iOS 5

    1) Weather and Stock widget for iPad???
    2) Ability to stay in the app store while downloading and updating apps??? Was sure this was mentioned back in June when iOS was first unveiled.
    3) Being able to Zoom with the camera for still pictures appears to have disappeared.

    Anything else that anyone can think of that should have been in iOS 5 and isn't.


    By the way I may be out of my mind either way

    I thought that I had seen widgets for wifi, bluetooth, etc on one of the beta versions. Was I just losing it?

    Yah you had to tap the screen and a little bar would come up to zoom in.

    You can zoom in and out when taking a photo by pinching the screen as you would to zoom with an existing photo.

    1) I think this would add a lot of value for the iPad - Hopefully they will consider adding them
    2) No - On iPhone for iOS 4 and now in 5 if you update an app you are taken to the home screen in which the app is installed. My perception of the new feature was that you wold be able to update the app and stay in the store to browse some more ala WebOS
    3) Thanks to everyone for the pinch to zoom advice. I guess that will work out about the same as tap then slide. I think I might like the pinch to zoom better. Time will tell.

    My biggest disappointment was the one app I used faithfully was "Checkbook". It shuts off when I try to open the register. I am so ticked...I never carry a register anymore so I'm off to find a new app. I don't mind paying for an app if it works as well as "checkbook". As if last night wasn't headache enough!

    Well I have to take that back. The developers state it's not yet compatible with ios 5. Now I have to find something that works. Ugh!

    I think the abiility to create albums in the Photos app is wasted! If I move a photo into the album I want to be able to delete it from the camera roll, surely this is the whole point of having the new album but if you delete the photo in camera roll it also deletes it from the album! jokers!

    Agree and also unless I am missing something once you crop a photo the original is gone? I much prefer to be able to keep both. Is this possible?

    So does anyone know why the ability to stay in the App Store while downloading an app was remvoed from iOS5. Hate that it pops out to the home screen and I have to go back into the app store each time I want a new app. \
