iOS 5 features highlighted in a brief YouTube video

iOS 5 features highlighted in a brief YouTube video
If the thorough presentation of iOS 5 at WWDC has not been enough for you, watching this YouTube video is another way of discovering some of the goodies that the upcoming version of Apple's mobile platform has in stock. Thanks to the magic of video editing, the 2-minute-long video clip has been made to carry a slight resemblance to an Apple commercial and highlights many iOS 5 features such as multitouch gestures, Twitter integration, iMessage, and the drop-down notification bar.

Bear in mind that the video has been sped up so be prepared to hit the pause button if you need to take a closer look at anything, and if you would like to see more iOS 5 goodness, feel free to watch the entire WWDC keynote presentation as well.

Nice video, the gestures are welcome, any word on gestures being brought to iPhone? I realize it is more difficult to get 5 fingers to swipe on a small screen, but 2 or 3 fingers to the left and right could switch between recent apps.

Also known as killing android in all profitable standpoints...because android didn't copy apple with pinch to zoom and something as SIMPLE as swipe to switch between photos. Oh the anarchy!

Android phones had this since 2003. Oh wait, Android phones didn't come out till 2009. But fagroids of course want to believe that android was being developed by google in the early 1800's, hahahahaha.

hey 530gemini be has flash and will blow apple out of the water and take over in 2011...oh wait....they said that in 2009 and here we are with 25 million ipads sold compared to 14 xoom tablets sold and maybe 75 galaxy tablets sold. SO TAKE THAT! and then they are going to compare the 2000 android phones available on all the different networks that offer open source, variety, different colors, UI's and unique identification with one's owner. Also, they can multi-task and were the first ones to do it. But don't forget you need a task killer for the multi-tasking to be effective so suck on that.

Just like google. Android fanboys don't know how to compete fairly. And you're right. They've been saying that the iphone will fade away, year after year, yet the iphone is still standing tall competing with NUMEROUS android devices. Oh boy, they never learn from their mistakes, lol.

Question to everyone except the last three posters (#s 8,9, &10 need not reply). Does anyone know if the gesture will be a part of non-developer version, or do we still have to download XCode?

Alright, alright! Judging by your post on another article, it seems as though you have changed your views on the other "F" word. So, Ok!!! You're off the list. Lol. You got any word on gestures without XCode?

I'm a gemini. You should know by now how my mood can change one moment to another, lol. I really don't know what you mean with "gestures w/out xcode". All I know is, there will be new gestures for iOS5, lol. And that's all I need to know :)

And to that unregistered person... What are you talking about? Android definently screwed the pooch with Honeycomb, but still not a bad OS. The manufacturers are the ones that are really stinking it up on the tablet front! And as for the "2000" different varieties of Android, that's why Android is #1! Not everyone is a conformist. Some people like a bigger screen, flash and multitasking! Even with a task manager. I'll bet there are a few iOS fans who wish they didn't have to close out of all their apps one, by one, by one, etc. I wish the iPad had an app that would allow me to close all open apps one at a time, because if I wanted to do that now I would have to turn my ad off. Yeah, that is a lot better then tapping one simple little widget on my screen, huh? Also, no one wants to see Apple fall. It's probably my favorite tech company, but as it stands now, the iPhone is too restricted for me to use. It looks nice but i can do much more with my Droid X. If the day ever comes that Apple can match Androids features, I would consider an iPhone. But until then, I'm android all the way!

just regarding task managers you do not need one.... this article here tells youwhy droid-task-killers-and-why-you-dont-need-one/even tho most android phones come with a task manager integrated (including nexus with the 2.3 update) so there is no need to get one from the markethere is a nice comparison"Here's how I explained it to my father:Say you're out golfing, and you have a caddy carrying your clubs for you. You ask him for a driver, he has it right there with him and hands it over. Then, after you tee off, you ask him for a 5-iron and he's got that handy as well. A good caddy will even recognize what club you're probably going to want next, and have it out of the bag already to hand it to you as soon as you need it. That's how Android approaches memory usage - it keeps the things you're likely to need right there and ready so you can just pop it open immediately.If you're using a task killer, it can't do that. It's essentially the same as if you were to tell your caddy to leave all your clubs in your car. Any time you want a new club, you hand him the old one, and he walks all the way back to the parking lot, puts it away and gets the new one. Worse, occasionally he'll try to be helpful and bring back a second club (say, your putter as you're getting close to the green), but you'll just tell him you didn't want the putter right now and send him all the way back to the car again. Meanwhile, you'll take your shot, and stand around at the green waiting for him to get back so you can hand him your 5-iron and tell him to go get the putter..."

Each person has a different taste to another. Nowadays, I just saw so many people look down on the others' smartphone. Why? we just need a phone to do things in our life. There are good OSs out there but I'm surely that nothing would be perfect to everyone. Don't waste time on comparing them together, use your time to improve your life and happiness.I'm using iPhone because I can do everything I need from a Phone. I can easily last through 2 days without charge. I satisfy with its hardwares. that's it?Eventhough Android or WP7 has some better feartures.. So what ? nothing is perfect.

The only thing Droid x beats iPhone 4 in is lag. I've yet to see a single Droid user walk away from my iPhone feeling good about the pos in their pocket. infact a few traded in their apex and captivate for the iPhone and never been happier.
