I think 5.0.1 is fantastic. Notifications are slick, syncing in iTunes is much better and having iCloud working on my phone (finally) is the s**t... That said, there are a couple of bugs. iBooks is the biggest issue for me. The app crashes after the jailbreak and I have yet to find a fix that works.

From what I can tell, unless you have another apple device in the iCloud then its kinda pointless?

If you don't have other Apple devices then it is pretty pointless but if you do have other Apple devices it's awesome. My contacts, calendar, documents, bookmarks and notes are synced instantly across all devices. No matter which device I pick up I have all my data and it's all 100% up to date. I've modified contacts on my desktop and turned on the iPad/iPhone within seconds and the new data is there. I've worked with sync programs for years but have not seen anything quite so quick and unobtrusive as iCloud. Best of all it just happens there's no telling it to.

There you go techead... Thanks for covering that one for me threegee. The syncing speed between iDevices really is astonishing.

Another World 20th Anniversary Edition is on sale for $1.99.

As you will read from some of the reviews the controls are a bit sucky, but I'm enjoying the game none the less.

Anyone know of an app similar to MobileMe's 'Find my iPhone' and like Google Latitude - but live? Basically want to track where my GF is - for safety reasons :)

Want to open all youtube vids in Safari instead of the app?

Since this tip is iOS in general I'm going to cross post it in the iPad and iPhone Tips/Tricks thread. . .

To disable the Youtube app - go to Settings>General>Restrictions> and toggle YouTube (under allow) to off. From then on any Youtube link should open in Safari.
