Restart, as in rebooting.Originally Posted by Tapmyapple
Simply press the Power & Home button for 7 seconds and when the iPad has turned off, press the power button again to start it again.
have you tried closing down all other apps you have running in background memory? closing down all other web pages that are open in the background? all other stuff completely, other than this page you're trying out?
Oh ok thanks. Ive rebooted many times before, ill do factory reset then restore to my backup settings. Highly doubt it will work.
A friend of mine confirmed he has this issue as well. He said its crappy safari.
Ive experienced this on 3 brand new ipads. Completely unacceptable quality control on part of Apple.
i tried your website link on my ipad1 running 4.2.1 jailbroken. with Safari and Icab mobile browser, i had none of the issues you stated or from your vid. the website scrolls perfectly, fast or slow. no blank caching what so ever. it might be something with your device or the firmware version u are running on. did the reset/reboot work for you?
that blackberry playbook blows away ipad or ipad2 in that video. he tried various sites. all loaded/rendered faster on the playbook. plus on the rendering tests, it could be seen how much smoother, faster, and better the playbook was at rendering and javascipt. ipad still better overall though. i would expect newer devices to outdo the ipad in some departments.
I Have not had issues with any main websites I visit in fact I estimate that it is at least 60% faster than my iPad 1 was. As another user commented you should reset safari and also reset the iPad you said you tried it on I connect my ipad2 to 3 different networks with out issue including Macdonalds and as a Supermod I am constantly researching and surfing several web sites. I am switching between several apps plus playing intensive games as well. My client data base have some 15 iPad 2 installed and all have commented how much faster the new model is compared to ipad . In every case they have both models. One client has 4 ipad1 and 3 iPad 2 they use you may try another browser like icab to see if it is better for you. I tested that web site you have on your post and mine was instant no scroll time and switch back and forth through links scrolled down no problem at all. It is faster on the iPad 2 than the iPad 1 I tested it on. I have cable wifi at 14mbs speed on Wifi
If you are not satisfied take it back to Apple.
Sucks I love that site though. I go on it also a lot on my iPad 2 and never got that problem. Maybe you should replace it. GO HABS GO!!
I just reset all my settings in the reset menu, didn't do factory restore. It worked but for how long who knows. I say it'll probably come back. It would be annoying having to constantly restore settings cause I have to reenter all my passwords etc. What would cause it anyways?
And how do you close down open apps? I thought once you hit the home button that program closes no?
to close an app, double press the home button to open the task bar, press and hold an icon, the icons will then jiggle as it were, they will also have a red x on them too, press the x on the app you wish to close, once done, press the home buttom to finishOriginally Posted by Tapmyapple
it could be that you have too many apps open, since you are not closing them?
