Which social networks do you use regularly on your iPhone and iPad?

Which social networks do you use regularly on your iPad?Which social networks do you use regularly on your iPhone?

There are several popular social networks on the web and they all have iPhone apps, and many have iPad apps (or the iPhone app can be used in 2x mode on the iPad). Which ones do you use, and if you have both and iPhone or iPod touch and an iPad, do you use them all the same on both? Are there any you prefer using on on iPhone as opposed to iPad, or vice versa? Any you use on one you don't use at all on the other?

Does your new iPad get warm? [Poll]

Does your new iPad get warm? And is it a problem?

We first noticed our new iPads were getting a little warm on the lower left side right after we got them, but only because previous iPads had always stayed so cool. For years our MacBooks have burned under Flash and our iPhones have become tiny space heaters when tethering or using turn-by-turn GPS, so no big deal. You can't pack that big a screen, that high a capacity battery, that screaming a graphics chip, and that fast an LTE radio into a case almost the same size and not have all that power go somewhere, right?

The new iPads higher running temperature been confirmed by scientific testing now, and addressed in a quote from Apple, but that hasn't stopped the headlines tripping all over themselves already.

Luckily, iPads will cool down when we stop downloading or stop playing, but the dumb headlines will last forever.

In the meantime, we wanted to do our own poll of the iMore Nation and find out what our community of iOS enthusiasts thought of the issue. How hot is your iPad running? And is it too hot?

Is this just one more mainstream media attempt to get Apple into a fake-gate, or is the heat a real issue that deserves attention and will need to be further addressed?

Vote in the poll up top and let me know your thoughts in the comments, and in our new iPad forums!

What do you think of your new iPad? [Poll]

What do you think of your new iPad?

So what do you think of your new iPad? Whether you waited by the door for UPS or FedEX, or waited in line like iMore and Mobile Nations, if you scored a new iPad today we want to know what you think of it!

Did it blow you away and make you think you were finally holding the future in your hands? Was it better than you expected your eyes not believing the quality of the Retina display or LTE speeds? Was it just what you expected, no more, no less? Did it disappoint you in some way? Or was it just simply the worst thing Apple ever spat from their cauldron?

We want to hear your take, so vote in the poll up top and then jump into our iPad forum reviews thread and give us your full take.

(Who knows, if you say something just so completely spot on, we might even have to quote you in the official iMore review!)

How is your battery life and performance with iOS 5.1? [Poll]

iOS 5.1 has been out for several days now, so it's time to ask -- how's it working for you? Did it fix any bugs or battery life issues you were having with iOS 5 on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad? Did it make performance better on your older original iPad or iPhone 3GS? Did any of the new features like even faster camera access and Photo Stream photo deletion make you life easier?

What change does Apple most need to make to the App Store? [Poll]

What change would you most like to see Apple make to the App Store?

Apple announced the App Store way back in spring of 2008 as part of the iPhone SDK event, and now 4 years later it's the biggest thing to ever hit mobile applications, but it still has a lot of issues. If you could wave a magic wand and have Apple add one thing to the App Store, what would it be?

Will you be switching to OS X Mountain Lion for Mac? [Poll]

What do you think of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion?

Apple shocked the tech geek community with this morning's surprise announcement of OS X Mountain Lion where they once again brought iPad and iPhone features "back to the Mac", including Messages, Reminders, Notification Center and more.

There's no word on Siri, Apple's voice controlled assistant, for Mac yet, but then again there's no word on Siri for iPad 3 yet either.

Apple is taking their time and doing what they do best -- seeding interest and creating buzz. They're excellent at it, just look at all the coverage they're getting this morning without even holding one of their famous keynotes!

And we want to know how its working.

If you're a Mac user, is this a no-brainer, instant-update for you when it's available, or would you rather Apple kept OS X and iOS separate and distinct?

If you're a Windows user, does anything you've seen today tempt you to make the switch to Mac, or does the idea of iOS-style stuff on your desktop make you even less likely to make the change?

If you're undecided, if you're waiting to see more, what precisely would Apple have to do to win you over to Mountain Lion?

You know the drill, vote in the poll above and give us your thoughts in the comments below!

Would you want a 5, 7, 8, or 12-inch iPad?

If Apple were to expand the iPad family, if they were to offer a single additional screen size for the iPad, if they answered all questions about software compatibility, even if it meant a third scale for apps (between iPhone and iPad, or larger than iPad), what size would you want? If you could get a 5.5, 7, 8, or 12-inch iPad, which would it be and why?
