I updated both my iphone4 and ipad2 yesterday. Like most everyone, I was concerned about losing all the data for my apps (Comixology and Zinio in particular). Once I reinstalled the apps, I found that all my magazines were still there. Did anyone else find this? Hugh, you stated that you had to re-download all your magazines, but I find it strange that I did not.
As for the Wifi Sync, it's not particularly smooth to get started. You have to turn the Wifi sync on in iTunes with the device connected. Once you turn it on in iTunes, the device will find iTunes on your network pretty easily. Also, I wouldn't suggest trying to do a full sync over wifi, it seems to get bogged down with reinstalling apps. Do a full sync physically connected to your computer, then use Wifi for incremental syncs.
Now that I've tried it on my machines, I'll probably try it with my girlfriends iPad2 and iPhone 3Gs. Has anyone heard of any issues with the 3Gs? I know that a lot of people didn't recommend iOS4 with the 3Gs, but I would be interested to know about this release.
