Is it time to switch on Photo Stream on your iPad?

As much as we wanted to use it, we haven't bothered with Apple's iOS5 Photo Stream feature so far because we simply didn't want every app screenshot we take, or fuzzy shot of our foot, ending up on all our devices.

Now that Apple have released iOS 5.1 we can finally select an individual photo and delete it from the Photo Stream for our account. For us, this makes Photo Stream worth switching on at last.

Why is this a big thing for iPad Creative? The imminent release of the New iPad and its 5MP camera, of course! Not to mention the even more fantastic photo viewing experience we expect from iPad 3's sharper and more saturated 'Retina Display'.

Finally we can look forward to having a camera in the iPad that we are not embarrassed to share the results from, or that we do not have to dress up with numerous filter apps to make useable (although we will still be doing that, especially with the release of iPhoto for iOS - but more on that soon).

What do you think?

We would like to hear from you, are you already using Photo Stream? Has the new update prompted you to turn it on now? Or is it something you just find no use for? Let us know in the comments.

This Week on iPad Creative - 6th to 12th June 2011

Just in case you missed anything this week, here's a link to each of our posts from the last few days:

'Just Like Heaven' by TelevatorMuzak - A fantastic cover of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven", completely played and recorded on GarageBand for iPad. We like it a lot!

iOS5 iPad Feature Preview from 9 to 5 Mac - A ten minute video walkthrough of some of iOS 5's key features from 9to5Mac.

Future/Canvas - iPad Art Showcase (plus video find) - We wish we could attend this exhibition in San Francisco that focusses on iPad Creativity, if you can get there you'll find a load of fun and interactive exhibits, and if you can't you can watch the video to see what's going on at Future/Canvas. 

Apple Post 'Introducing iOS 5' Video - Apple's own iOS 5 video walkthrough, be sure to watch it in HD.

Alesis iO Dock Demoed and Reviewed by UniqueSquared (Video) - We want, watch the video and you will too!

Adele's 'Rumour Has It' by Ellen Hinton - Another classy cover from the very talented Ellen using the iPad and GarageBand as her 'studio', be sure to check the video out.

Here's Apple's own iOS 5 overview to whet your appetite for the official release this Autumn. It is the usual high polish, and often parodied, affair with mostly Scott Forstall (naturally) talking up the new iOS developments.

We must admit to being quite excited about some of the new features, but we think one of the biggest developments for wider iPad adoption will be the independent activitation of the device. No computer needed. That's the future folks!

What about you? Is there anything you're particularly looking forward to following the iOS 5 and iCloud announcements?
