    If it's a matter of optimized IOS or RAM then, why does IOS 7 run crash-less on my old ipad2?

    What is the "it" to which you refer? I think Safari is buggy...and I think I get fewer crashes than many folks here do on my devices. You might be using your iPad 2 less than something else....or in different ways.

    Well, my "old";) iPad3 has run beautifully with no crashes at all on iOS7.. or earlier for that matter, so those problems with the Air are really puzzling. Maybe it's Safari not getting along with the 64 bit architecture or the speed? But yeah, if it is the new 64 bit setup not happy with the RAM, and 2 Gig could appear next year, I could be in for a change of iPads then.

    I still believe its a combination of safari and iOS 7. Although, why are some of us, like me not experiencing any issues at all? Are we not hitting the right websites? And why aren't graphically heavy games and large apps crashing? If it was just RAM then every app would be crashing...right? Maybe not. Either way, apple has to tend to this matter. It's obviously not just people whining. ;)

    I agree. Something is wrong....I don't get many crashes on my Mini 2, but I get some. Goodreader is crashy after going to iOS7 on all my devices where it was not before iOS7. I got a Safari crash on that 9-to-5 website, but otherwise, on the pages I frequent, I don't get a lot of crashes. I'm sure when you take a lot of folks in group, then the number of sites goes up really fast, thus the result must be real. Also, we have a lot of members here, so complaints that show up here a LOT must be indicative of what's happening in the overall community. It's not like this is just a tiny group of frequent posters.

    Absolutely. So something has to be addressed here, just not sure what! They can't recall everyone's iPad Air and add RAM so it's gonna have to be on the software end of things.

    I think it is the Goodreader's developers who have problems with their IOS 7 upgrade. Hopefully they will find the problem and offer an update soon as it used to be one of my most used apps for organization, etc.

    I don't think I've seen many updates from them since iOS7 hit. I have sent many crash reports to them. I'm thinking of trying PDFExpert now, though.

    Edit: Just checked in the app store...last update was Sept 16. However, they are promising a "full-scale" major update with a new design, ANY DAY NOW. :)

    I take this to me they aren't trying to fix the bugs in this version (anymore) because they are working on the full-scale overhaul. As long as they don't charge for it, then I'm ok with that. Reading the comments on PDF Expert, it seems they charged for their massive update and some folks are unhappy about that.

    I guess I meant- If the crashes are a matter of, lac of optimized IOS or RAM then, why does IOS 7 run crash-less on my old ipad2?


    I agree that I probably am using my iPad differently than those with the crash problems. I'm not a heavy safari user.
