Some of the bugs listed seem like retard rookie mistakes. Any app that Apple themselves put out should be 10x better than anything anybody else could develop...and should be friggin' flawless!

- Videos now continue to play over AirPlay when the device locks or after interruptions, e.g., a phone call
- When playing videos, the audio ringer switch no longer mutes audio

REALLY?!?! Wow!!

I love my iPhone...I've had one of every model...love my iPad...my AppleTVs...my Retina MBP...but I've gotta say: Steve WAS Apple and I'm afraid their best days are in their rear view.

Prove me wrong Tim-bo (please).
