I'm just wondering whether anyone else here has noticed a tendency for Safari on the iPad to reload a page when you switch from one tab to another? For example if I create a new browsing tab, use it to look at another site, then switch back to the tab that I'm currently using to write this post then it will most likely try to reload the page and consequently blow away everything that I've just written here. I'd be surprised if I were the only one experiencing this problem, but I'm equally surprised that I haven't seen anyone else complain about it considering how much it irritates me.

The other pain point I have at the moment is with the implementation of the music playing feature. In particular, I hate it how (at least to the best of my knowledge) I can't create playlists and if I have a playlist featuring music videos it won't play them in sequence. In fact, as far as I can tell the only way to play music videos is to select them one at a time on the fly in the video playing app which is far from ideal.

On the whole I'm still very happy with the device but these are two things that I'd really like to see addressed when iOS 4 is available for the iPad.

i get that too. I guess the reloading issue existed since iPhone, so i don't think that will ever change.

As for the playlist thing, perhaps need to wait for the iPad to be updated to iOS4.0?

Every now and again it loses it's brain and resets the cellular data connection - no APN, roaming off, and tells you it cannot activate a cellular data connection.

Turning data off and on cures it, although having the APN set to internet and roaming turned on is important if you go outside our coverage areas (i.e., like I do every day when I go home!)

Happened twice in 6 weeks and takes 30s to fix so I think I can live with it.

More annoying - no iOS 4 for iPad yet...

But why is there a need for it to behave like this? Doesn't it defeat the whole point of working with tabbed browsing?

I'm very much looking forward to iOS 4 as there is potential to make the product a lot better by dealing with minor gripes like this.

No idea... but i don't think iOS4 will solve this safari issue. But certainly the "multi-task" thing will be an improvement to the current software.

Safari already multi-tasks. It's non-Apple-userland stuff that multitasks in iOS4.

Oh, and I agree, the reload thing is annoying.
