I'm both JB and have the virtual memory hack and am noticing worsening freezes and slowdowns, especially in the web browsers (both safari and atomic), and even sometimes the browser will just shut off on me, and thats with only 3 or 4 tabs open. I've also noted decreased accuracy on finger presses registering, don't know if that's related.I'm getting ready to completely wipe the entire ipad, but I'd rather not lose my JB stuff and am starting to suspect the virtual memory hack.
I've had it happen to me a handful of times recently. One issue that has repeated is where when I touch the window button to view the other pages I have open it doesn't do anything, so i have to restart the iPad to get it to reset.
Had my retina mini wifi+cellular a couple days now currently still on 7.0.4. Background of iPad 3 and iPhones.
So a couple of times a day when loading safari page or YouTube video it freezes loading, I've tried closing the application but that doesn't work, only thing that works is a hard reset (sleep and home button for couple seconds)
It's started to get annoying, thought it was a one off the first time. iPad 3 and iPhone 5 on same wifi work fine.
After getting my ipad and being very excited with it, I am now wondering just what I want to do with it. Browsing the internet is like sitting down at with a legacy device and trying to visit modern web pages. My windows Atom net-book can run circles around it, and it's over a year old . . .
This is very disappointing. I can only hope Apple takes notice and has a patch solution.
But if I have to hope every web site has to make and app version of their site (e.g., Facebook app), and then have to purchase and install -- no way!
I hope all that is needed is some cleaner iOS. That or apple just should consider putting a intel dual into this device . . .
I've tried looking at some of the other post, and there are some similar issues. Anyway, I'm looking for input and want to know if I got this right . . . that it is indeed slow and there is no fix at this moment?
Let me know and thanks for reading!
PS, this was NOT sent from my ipad . . .

I just got my new iPad (3rd generation), and something that surprised me about it was that it was so slow to become responsive in Safari. I'm not sure if this is just my problem or this is something that everyone goes through. Whether I choose to touch the address bar or the search bar, Safari usually takes about 5 seconds to respond. That's an unexpectedly high time. I'm coming from using an iPhone 4 as my only iOS device so I assumed I'd see comparable or better speeds with iPad's Safari. Was the assumption wrong? Or is there something wrong with my iPad? No other app has shown unresponsiveness on that level. The iPad has, otherwise, been a model of speed and wonder for me. Which makes this Safari behavior stand out all the more.
I'm having problems with slow streaming/buffering. Can someone click the above video on their iPad and tell me if it's slow or not? When I watch this on my laptop it runs great, but on iPad it's horribly slow and choppy (same network). I spent a good hour talking to apple support with no luck..
p.s No, I'm not an Info Wars nut. This is just an example of random videos not working on iPad.
I'm running ios 5.1.1 on my iPad 2. For the past few days, safari has been very slow. it can take 20 seconds for a web page to load. If I force quit, it gets better for a short time, but then the problem starts up again.
My iPad 1 still has iOS 4 on it and nothing has changed. So why is Safari suddenly running slow? I mean REALLY slow. It may take up to 60 seconds to download a full web page. It varies; sometimes it's better, then it gets bad again.
Problem #1: Just over the last few weeks, it's been running really slow, especially when using Safari to browse the web.Problem #2: Two days ago my Safari bookmarks suddenly disappeared from the iPad. They are still on the iMac and the iPhone, just not the iPad.I am a MobileMe customer and have not yet gone to iCloud (waiting for bugs to get resolved).
Ipad is supposed to be your internet gateway in the house and is a perfect format for that but I am getting very frustrated with Safari's limitations (iPad version). Many sites that work fine on my macbook are not working on the iPad, pages with scroll down windows / lists is one for example. Pdf's that open only on what's visible on the screen and getting stuck on that with nothing else coming and no access to even the bottom of the first page. Lastly i find the internet connection to be much slower on the iPad that on the other computers in the house.
issue with safari taking its slow sweet time in loading pages? And I get checkerboard when I scroll up and down pages. Don't believe it's home network problem. Also don't notice similar lag when using apps or even viewing YouTube vids. iPad 2 is two weeks old, and I haven't done anything unusual to it.
I am very unhappy with the iPad, specifically the performance (or lack there of) of Safari. Most pages that are not pure html load slowly or not at all. Usually they require that I stop the load and click the reload to get them to show. Pages that require a login like Facebook won't come up at all. I've confirmed my login on Facebook by logging out and back in on my Mac but with the iPad... nothing but a hang and eventually a note that the 'server stopped responding' (don't think so because I can log in on my Imac).
I cannot down load free apps from the app store and in fact can't get my account info to come up. Again, of the iMac, no problems. I guess the App Store serve could be very busy because of the demand for apps being downloaded for all the new iPads but that does not explain my web access issues.
MMany things changed with ios8. A lot of them frustrating. But the worst is how everything is slower. Safari freezes, games lag between play. Email is slow. Just some strange things happen since this update.
After the update my iPad was working slow, freeze or crash on startup and some applications. I set it back via iTunes and tried to install the Backup. Now iTunes is freezing too... The iPad switches between Sync and blank screen every 2-3 minutes.
***...is this update about...??? What should I do now with my iPad...?

Have a new 3G and am replacing my wifi only iPad. I restored my wifi backup onto my 3G and everything seems to work. My problem is that the new 3G is now freezing when playing video, making me reset the iPad in order to do anything.
It freezes during video. Happened once while on the abc app and a couple other times watching video on CNN's website. I assume this can be addressed via software update, but has anyone else had this problem?
Please could someone say while on Internet watching vids within 5 secs it freezes and I was trying to watch vid of how to use the iPad I got sound for few seconds but just white screen this vid was from apple page.
