Nice Video of iOS 5 Demoed on iPad


YouTube user InfoZenn has posted a very nice walkthrough of iOS 5 on an iPad. Amongst many of the new features, he also shows off some of the new multi-touch gestures that were originally tested in iOS 4.3. Swiping can be used to switch applications (left/right) or to bring up the multitasking bar (up). Pinching with four or five fingers can also be used to return to the home screen. iOS 5 is due for release sometime this fall.

Please take the responsibility of converting videos from Flash as not everybody has flash installed their machines or iOS devices?

Thanks


This video works fine on iOS devices. YouTube also serves up non-flash content if you have things configured properly.

This needs one of those patented Apple-ad "sequences shortened" disclaimers.

Thanks for the video demo! Can’t wait for fall. Those gestures will encourage me to use multi-app workflows in a much more desktop-like way.

(It’s odd to me how everyone seems to use an awkward “claw” motion for the 4-finger swipes. A flat-hand swipe is much easier than just using the very fingertips. In other words, you can swipe just like you’d do with 1, 2 or 3 fingers--only with 4 or 5. It doesn’t matter what angle your fingertips are lined up at, so you don’t have to turn your hand sideways for a sideways swipe. Yet I can’t find a single video on YouTube that doesn’t use “the claw”!)

I think you have to try to get youtube to not work on an iOS device.


Sometimes there is a short delay, after the video goes onto YouTube, before the non-Flash conversion is ready. For brand-new videos I sometimes have to re-try.

That being said, iOS 5 looks great. Never having to use the home button = win.

Theres a great web browser in the app store that detects flash video on your iOS device and it will be converted so that you can watch it, its a must need app called "Sky Fire"

So why are you running without flash?!
Unless Lion doesn't support flash which = LOLOL

Lion supports browser plug-ins, which means it supports Flash. It supports everything Snow Leopard did with the exception of Rosetta.

Maybe he's not running it because it's awful?

You can easily get away without running Flash using an HTML5 conversion extension and an iPad user agent string.
