iOS (any version) does not make it possible for apps running on the devices to get at the names that the files are recorded with on the file system. These names are used to display the file system structure when plugged-in via USB, but are not available to our (or any other app). Prior to iOS 5, what we were given was a numeric "asset ID" for camera roll items that, while different from the file system names, was at least a simple number. In iOS 5, the asset IDs have changed to a UUID
format, which is the long file name that you are seeing. At this point we are faced with either making up names and losing any correlation files uploaded out of iOS may have with the original device or using the UUIDs verbatim. During the initial launch of iOS 5, we've elected to do the latter and we're waiting to see if any other APIs may become available through the SDKs.
If you ware aware of any app that under iOS 5 is able to display or use names that correspond directly to the names that your computer displays when your iOS device is plugged-in via USB, please let us know.
