Video: Hands On With iOS 5

Given the widespread problems folks are having with iOS 5 we thought we’d share a few of the features and associated apps with you all.

This update is fairly major – some would call it iOS catching up to some of the best features of Android, especially the interesting new notifications screen – but there was surprisingly little to really show. Most of the features are hidden behind the scenes and the improvements like multitouch gestures have a bit of a tacked-on feel at worst and are inconsequential at best.

That said, this is an interesting move for iOS in general and, although I filmed this on the iPad, I think iOS 5 really shines on the smaller iPhone screen, especially with the addition of notification widgets like Weather and the stock ticker.
