Why is it that swipe is not present in the calendar app to go to next day/week or month? You have to touch on the ridiculously small arrow on the bottom of the page.

Is there anyway to disable the wake-up swipe on the ipad? This seems like a rather useless function now that the device doesnt exactly fit in your pocket anymore, but I cant seem to find a way to just wake-up the device and continue what I was doing prior to having it go to sleep. Am I missing something, or is this just not possible at this time? ipad wifi 16G Other OS...|disable-wake-swipe-ipad

I downloaded iOS 5 today and I'm disappointed to find that I can no longer drag/swipe across the pictures that I want to transfer from my sd card.  Also the 1000's of pics already on my device have had the album names changed from the date of transfer back to some file name. I need to be able to locate pictures from months back quickly and easily for work.  Is there something I'm missing or have I lost the abilities to do these things. Thanks.  Bryan...|swipe-finger-select-multiple-photos-transfer-sd-card-connector
