iOS 5, just what iOS needed, right??

With iOS5 this will no longer be the case as yesterday Apple reveled their new notifications centre with a more colorful message appearing at the top of the screen when your device receives a notifications which auto-dismisses, but thats not it also you can then see this message after it has dismissed by swiping down to see the full notifications centre. (I know about time right?)
Most of the Apple haters out there will respond to this as Notifications centre is apparently copying Andriods pull-down notification pane, but really it isn’t because there is one more feature that Apple have added you can also see your notifications on your lock-screen and view the apps right from there, Boom!
Another feature Apple have added is completely redesigned to camera experience, promising a much faster camera launch time in iOS5, with the integration of a button on the lock-screen to start the camera straight from there, (sounds great right) it is, first question out the way, No you cannot accidently press this as you have to double tap the home button before this button will appear, and also if you have a pass-code lock on your phone it will still allow you to take the photo but nothing else gallery etc will be locked. Plus they have imaging feature like focus and aperture lock and on device editing software killing the need for any third party applications, Win! Oh and you can take a photo with the volume up button.
IMessenger in the simplest form is basically the same idea that came from BBM or Blackberry messenger, yes Apple haters this one is a copy, but wait Apple have made it better as its not just betweeen phones like blackberrys messenger its for all iOS devices, and its capable of WiFi and 3G.
Reminders is basically a To-Do-List with two extreme features of calendar syncing over the cloud within all your devices (including Mac and PC) and GPS triggering which makes the phone remind you of your tasks when you leave or enter a certain destination.
And More …
