It resolves the unexpected crashes with setting/modifying repeats and sounds for notifications/alerts.
Still, there remain a couple of niggling issues:
- sound plays on - even if you leave the Add Alert menu
- the edit alert menu doesn't seem to take in the data from the alert it is supposed to edit.
I will work towards a speedy resolution for these problems, too.
And hopefully, hopefully we get around all these iOS 5 issues.
