iOS 4 released earlier this week, and I downloaded it as quickly as I could. My experience has been mixed, and my first impressions have been:
– Features most wanted were multi-Exchange account support and folders
– Features found by the way, were Task management, Screen orientation lock, Auto time setting (untried at this point as I wing my way back to the UK) and multi graphic backgrounds
– Features most hated are Multi-tasking, task management and Google Sync security defaults.
– Features most liked are Multi-Exchange support and folders
– Features most desired are Multi-tasking on/off toggle (and I would leave it off), and a decent task manager (because it should be easier to stop apps hogging precious battery power).
Overall it has been both snappier and sluggish, eaten more battery and been more functional so it is an improvement. However I am not happy to have to task and memory manage again as I ran away from Windows Phone because of those.
Oh and Google, you need to sort out your Mobile Sync setting support and overall Google Apps capacity as those first two days were hell.
