iOS 5 on iPad (v1) underperforms
Okay, I just need to vent/rant. Anyone else with an iPad version 1, that has installed iOS 5 think that these two were not meant for each other?
I am experiencing the following issues with iOS 5 on my iPad v1:
- Crashes often with 3rd party apps AND build in apps like the Safari browser? I don’t think I am a heavy iPad user, but experience at least 3 application crashes per day. A lot of times, it will simply be watching a YouTube video on a Safari page. The app just closes down.
- Performance has taken a major hit with the new iOS. This is especially obvious in the AppStore application where clicking on the search field will often take 3-5 seconds to get the I-beam to appear so I can type. And yes, I have fully shut down and restarted the iPad…and it is still slow…with no other apps running. Also, switching between Updates, Categories, etc. is sluggish….and I am WiFi with 30+Mbps connection.
- The new fancy notification pull-down seems buggy. At times, some of the items will flash (appear then disappear then appear….).
Anyone else experiencing issues? Maybe it is just operator error (but I doubt it).
