    iPad running slowly

    The day out of the box for the 64gb iPad everything was lightning fast.

    In two weeks, the iPad is slow, sluggish, mostly in downloading web pages and you tube videos.

    You tube is so slow, the videos stop every three seconds to catchup.

    Netflicks is impossible to use, will not keep up.

    I have rebooted the unit, I have not reset any settings.

    My iPhone is faster, and has not slowed down like the iPad has.

    Help!

    Time for an upgrade from apple?

    Sounds like a network problem.

    Nah, a sluggish network would show on other attached wireless units. Its most likely an app thats hogging memory and doesnt tidy up after itself. Making everything else take forever, including communicating with the airportcard, ( or broadcomm, whatever they used! You get the idea!)

    Or, how much memory do you have left? Like any computer if you rack it up to the limit, it will get sluggish.

    I use my 64gb everyday using some really memory hog apps and never has it showed a sign of slowing down, what type of router are you using?

    i do not really have any movies or photos on the unit so iam ok there ..my big file on the unit was the music which is about 5gb of music in which i went through and picked the songs i wanted to stay and got rid of the others onto the desktop harddirve unit and second biggest is going to the be the new application i getting 5.gb and the third biggest applications are the dvd and librarty applications ..

    Since the slowing down is effecting downloading content, it sounds more like a network issues. You said you hadn't changed any settings, but have you checked to be sure they are all right? Re-boot the router, can help fix things even when it doesn't make since. Are you getting a strong WIFI signal when this happens?

    Anyway, just some ideas..... Good luck.

    I miss read the problem. It does sound like a net work issue. Can you try it at a wifi hot spot to see what happens ?

    I tried mine (16gb) at Barnes and Noble on Saturday. It was PAINFULLY slow. When I use it at home with my router it is fine.

    More than likely NOT an iPad issue. It can only receive as fast as the network gives.
