iOS 5 makes it even easier to tweet from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Sign in once in Settings, and suddenly you can tweet directly from Safari, Photos, Camera, YouTube, or Maps. Want to mention or @reply to a friend? Contacts applies your friends’ Twitter usernames and profile pictures. So you can start typing a name and iOS 5 does the rest. You can even add a location to any tweet, no matter which app you’re tweeting from.

You get all kinds of notifications on your iOS device: new email, texts, friend requests, and more. With Notification Center, you can keep track of them all in one convenient location. Just swipe down from the top of any screen to enter Notification Center. Choose which notifications you want to see. Even see a stock ticker and the current weather. New notifications appear briefly at the top of your screen, without interrupting what you’re doing. And the Lock screen displays notifications so you can act on them with just a swipe. Notification Center is the best way to stay on top of your life’s breaking news.

New features in iOS 5 includes opening the Camera app right from the Lock screen. Use grid lines, pinch-to-zoom gestures, and single-tap focus and exposure locks. Now you can press the volume-up button to snap your photo. Their is also a editing feature built in, to crop, red eye reduction and more.

This is a new messaging service for all iOS 5 users. You are now able to send unlimited text messages over Wi-Fi or 3G from iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch to anyone with one of those devices. iMessage is built into the Messages app,so you can send text, photos, videos, locations and contacts. Group messaging, delivery receipts and optional read receipts.

Now some might say this is a copy of the Blackberries BBM, but this actually makes more sense on iOS devices than BB.
iOS 5 devices like iPad and iPod Touch that don't have phone service or 3G cant send messages, so now with iMessage they can over Wi-Fi. You can now use your iPad or iPod Touch to communicate with other iOS 5 devices for free.

For the hardcore user I recommend "Live Profile or Ping Chat", cause you can do the same thing but instead of limiting to one platform you can communicate with multiple mobile platforms like Android & Blackberry.

With iOS 5, you no longer need a computer to own an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Activate and set up your device wirelessly, right out of the box. Download free iOS software updates directly on your device. Do more with your apps — like editing your photos or adding new email folders — on your device, without the need for a Mac or PC. And back up and restore your device automatically using iCloud.

Apple TV is meant for those people who have Music, Movies, Video's, Pictures and Etc. on their computer, and this is just a way to watch all that on your computer. So other words it's like having an iPod plugged in-to your TV, I have one only because I rather watch the movies and TV shows I buy on Itunes on a TV rather than on my mac, however the price is pretty steep, so it's a hit or miss with some people. But still apple gives launched another unique device. Thanks for sharing this.
