iOS5-Related Links from John Clark

John Clark is our local “macdoktor.” See his site at macdoktor.blogspot.com. He sent some links about iOS5 for Apple’s various mobile devices as a followup to a class he taught recently. (His classes are excellent and highly-recommended!) I’m parking them here for anyone who wants to use them.

First, here’s a few links to some catch-all articles that cover a lot of the little details mentioned today:

Way at the bottom of the second link above, they mention the keyboard short feature found in iOS 5. I [John] meant to mention this, as it’s really one of the most powerful features in the new OS. Here’s a link that covers that feature in more detail: http://safe.mn/3wYU

Next, I mentioned a few apps, but here’s a more comprehensive list:
