Still no bluetooth audio output in GarageBand? Yes, I know there are latency issues that would make it impossible for live performance, but there's absolutely no excuse for not having it as an option for things like education and simple playback.

 

How about lyrics in the Music app for iPad!?

Anybody notice that if you go to the new Maps app and look at North Carolina there's a huge white heat bloom where Apple's server farm is?

Lolz.

Just kidding.

As an iPad iPhoto user, this update is fucking amazing. Literally fixes all my gripes with the app, nice interface tweaks,  and adds a bunch of new, useful shit. Same with many of the other apps updated today. 

 

THIS is the massive advanatge Apple has over anyone else in the mobile space- high quality, polished, powerful apps. Good luck finding equivalents of these on other platforms.

So much more can be done with Objective-C than can with HTML5. I would have assumed that Apple would want to create a completely innovative shopping "site" unlike that of any other company to show not only what should be possible with web languages but also what can be done with shopping utilities on the iPad… leading to stores picking up such ideas for their own apps, leading to a better shopping experience Internet-wide.

Same applies to "free" apps.

iPhoto for iOS finally - finally!!! - preserves custom dates/times entered in the OS X version of iPhoto. I had scanned in thousands of photos from old photo albums and hand-dated most of them to correspond to when they were actually taken (vs. when they were scanned in). I'd open them up on iPhoto for iOS, and the sort orders within an event would be all screwed up. This update finally fixes it. Unfortunately, I have almost 200 events on the OS X version of iPhoto, and when they come over to the iOS version, the sort order of the event tiles doesn't come with it. This needs to be addressed.

Couldn't figure out why this seemed to work for everyone but me.  Then I realized, I was downloading updates via iTunes and it still requires the password for updates and free apps.

In Aperture you can change the original date and time in the exif field. As well as the original file date & time. I'm sure there are scripts out there that do this for you. Search and if you don't find, write an Automator script yourself.

PS Really happy Cards is there for iPad; never understood why it was iPhone only initially.
PPS Darn, I really want to see that iAd app, but it's unavailable here in NL
