    Default 4.2 beta question
    I just signed up for the dev program. I have a few apps that are just about ready for release.

    How buggy is the 4.2 beta if I install it on my iPad since I have 3.2.2 and can't jailbreak anyway?

    Is it ok for everyday use?

    I am on 4.2 and it is fine for everyday use. Beta 1 had a wifi drop problem but beta 2 hasn't been bad.

    Most of the ones I use work fine. The only one that I have used that doesn't work is the ABC app.

    I installed it 4.2b2

    Sadly MobileMe doesn't work.. It crashes at sync
    Besides that it has some safri stability issues I noticed, every app you also have to close manually or it will remain open in memory

    That is because 4.2 introduced background apps. As for the mobileme I did not know cause I don't use that. I have had no issues with safari myself.

    4.2b2 has been really stable for me also. I had the wifi issues on b1 but I haven't had any problems with b2.

    If you need one of those apps tested let me know.

    That's weird. I had no issues with wifi on beta 1, but wifi would constantly drop on beta 2. Beta 3 is fine...so far.
    Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?
