IOS 5.1.1 Update - It Keeps Crashing

This update has made the already full of bugs and loaded with issues iOS 5 even worse. Now my New iPad keeps crashing, leaving an outline of the app folder on the home screen. I've had to restart twice in two days to fix this. As well as this the iPad and my 4S keep losing Wi-fi connection. Other devices don't so it's not the network. I'm not at all impressed with iOS 5.0, 5.0.1, 5.1 or now 5.1.1. All have been by far the least stable yet most buggy and problematic. Really unimpressive considering the amount of time it took to get it to public release as well as a record number of beta releases. It just doesn't work.

iPad Wi-Fi + 4G, iOS 5.1.1

Safari Constantly Crashing Since Update To IOS 5
If it were any other app I'd delete it and reinstall but you can't really do that with safari.Sometimes it's fine, other times it will crash out several times, usually as I'm typing something like this. It usually waits until I've almost finished and then Pulls the plug, losing everything I've written in the process.

IPad 1 Apps Keep Crashing After IOS5 Update?
Safari keeps crashing a lot as well as other apps. They didn't crash before now they are I am guessing it's a memory issue but I don't keep a lot of apps in memory maybe 3 or 4 before the update I kept many more without an issue. Is there a way to fix this?

I am not jail broken but would it help in case there is an app to help manage the memory? Also my battery now sucks it dies really quickly even when I am not using it... iPad 1 was great before this update now it's inconsistent.

To Update Or Not? / App Crashing With New Update?
My iPad is working wonderfully. Hooks up to wi-fi, all apps run well.

Reading all the stories of iPad's that have been updated "bricking," wi fi problems occuring, deleted apps has me nervous about updating. I live far from a Mac store (3hours) and won't be able to access a genius should shit happen.

Am I worrying for nada or good reasons?

To update or not to update? That's my question.

Regarding Screen Crashing
When I'm in Safari my screen will all of the sudden start jumping around. It will zoom in and out, move left to right, up and down, all on its own. I can't click/touch on anything as its now unresponsive. When I exit it out I can not longer use any other app. All the icons are now non-responsive to touch. It won't let me shut down normally either as I have to do the home/power button reset to get it off and back on.I have noticed it happening when searching in Google, and when checking my football and hockey pools.

Applications Crashing
Anyone having issues with the ABC video player? I was watching Food Revolution and it loaded up and ran fine the first time, but then when I went back in it would start up the video then crash out. Doing a soft reboot let it run properly again, but once I went out and tried to go back in it bombed out again.

Crashing - Video App
I've run into a bug. My iPod application on my iPad keeps crashing. I've done ever trick I can think of to restore it, removing all songs from the application, syncing only 1 song. But, it gets to "updating music library" and then after a few moments crashes. Each subsequent restart of the iPod app simply crashes almost immediately.I'm currently doing a full restore and will report back.But, I've seen this happen to a few people on various discussion boards already, so I know I'm not alone. To some people it happened in the Video app, to others in the iPod app.

A Lot Of Apps Crashing
Maybe (okay, almost certainly) this is the break-in period, but a lot of the apps on the iPad sure do crash.Most recently, USA Today app crashed and now will not start up. Kindle app, Kobo, Zinio, and a few others have all crashed on my iPad.

Crashing Safari And App's
I have been having crashing problems the last 2 weeks when I am on safari, I am having some sites crash and I end up at my home screen. I have been using other app's for some time without crashing, now like safari, a few of those are crashing also, always back to home screen.I have not backed up since April, but do update my app's, and I also have not upgraded the OS, and until about 2 weeks ago everything worked almost as well as it should have, except for the ongoing wifi problem that seems better now with some work arounds.Is this problem due to the app's, or more problems with the Ipad?

Using Apps Crashing?
Today I returned my iPad to the Apple Store in Pasadena, CA... This was my second device I purchased trying to remedy crashing apps mainly Safari, anyway when I arrived at the store I had a HORRIBLE experience with a manager named "Dee"... I explained my concerns and let her know I did a couple of restores along with purchasing a new device trying to fix my issue... Dee shockingly explained to me that they had over 100 iPads in the store, she said she has never heard of a crashing app on the iPad... Basically calling me a liar! I went on to explained again that I purchased a second device in good faith assuming that my concern would be fixed. This women was VERY rude & I have always been told Apple has the best customer service, when I was done I was charged a 60 restocking. I am not rocket scientist but this cant be a normal experience with Apple.

It Is Constantly Crashing
My original iPad has been constantly crashing. I'm using iOS 5.0. I was at the Apple Store recently on another matter and the Genius there said I should re-install the OS from scratch but *not* do a restore. She said I should do everything manually, including re-installing all apps by hand. And only then should I restore data from the cloud.Just want to confirm that I understood her correctly. Is this the correct way to proceed? If so, what's the outline of steps to take?

My Apps Crashing Lately
At home in the UK, BT home zone, iPad original, iOS5 with all apps hopefully updated, and suddenly crash. App(s) unexpectedly quit, I'm back at the home screen level. Usually the app reopens where last I was reading. This morning with SkyGrid though, I was out in the cold and had to step my bck to the last article I was reading. This happensnwith other apps as well: games, apps with a web connection and apps without. Any suggestions for where to start looking or testing for a culpable culprit?

My Safari Is Crashing
Since this morning, Safari on my iPad 1 (V. 4.3) will open for a second then close automatically. I have tried to open it many many times and the same happens every time.

All other Apps were originally ok, but now some others are doing the same too. (since restoring)

1) Deleted History & Cookies.

2) Powered off numerous times and left off for a while.

3) Restored the iPad and reinstalled a back up. (See note below)

4) Removed the Apps that I installed over the last few days

5) Soft Reset (Pressing Home & Power button at same time)

Unfortunately, I did a back up this morning so can only restore my iPad to the backup of this morning which seems to have have the same problems.

Crashing A Bit More Often Than Usual
The new one that I bought seems to crash a bit often even though I don't do anything demanding. This happened when I browsed the movie section in iTunes and the comic book store in the Marvel Comics app. Nothing else was running in the background. What I mean by "crash" is that it simply closes the program and goes back to the menu screen.

I checked the diagnostics and it said it was a memory issue. It doesn't bother me too much since I can easily exchange the model but I was wondering if I got a dud.

IPad 1 Keeps Crashing
I call Apple and am told to restore it and what not. I have the first generation iPad and it's running iOS 4.3. It randomly crashes about ten times a day. When it crashes I have maybe like 3 apps in multitasking, the app doesn't return where it was (like YouTube opens as if fresh even after I open it from the multitasking bar), and when it does crash the whole screen goes black then wakes back up on the home screen (almost like when your iPhone dies at 2% except it never fully dies).

Stop It From Crashing?
I came across this rather strange 'bug' whilst trying to edit, and then crop an image in my photos.Ive done this loads of times with photos and images, but this time I was trying to crop a screen grab from safari. In particular a screen grab from the amazon website.EVERY time i select the image and click on 'edit' it crashes/resets my iPad. EVERY SINGLE TIME.This is rather unusual, is there some sort of image recognition or something that tells the iOS software not to edit certain images?It must have something to do with this particular image, because when i edit it in phototshop slightly (adding a red line through it)i am then able to edit the image in iOS photos.I would be interested to hear from anyone else out there and see if they could try this.
