Upgrading to iOS 5

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

After reviewing material from the WWDC 2011 Conference and many new features and updates (covered in a moment) I decided to go through and purchase an Apple Developer Membership ($99 / year) which grants me access to the iOS 5 Beta (installing as I type). Is it worth essentially paying to get access to something buggy and early? Hell yes. Those notifications were just that annoying, plus I like shiny new things even if they have some rough patches. Will I take the opportunity to write some iOS code? Maybe. I have given Appcelerator a run through, maybe it’s improved since then.
