iOS 5 Tech Talk World Tour 2011
Sign up quickly, these will go very fast.
Marco on the new iOS 5 behaviour restricting the kinds of files which can be stored into the Documents folder and the automatic cleaning of cache folders in low disk space situations. As he says at the start of the post, "This is going to be a problem".
Backgrounding apps when locking on iOS 5
