    Any ideas on how to figure out what apps are making my iPad slow and crash so much?
    I have 16gb available storage and 12.6gb being used.
    Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Thx!

    Your problems with crashing apps are more likely to be caused by the fact that the iPad 1 has the smallest RAM of all the iPads, at 256MB. You can minimize the problem by closing out the apps in the multi tasking bar, only keeping open the app you are actually using.

    Hey,

    I might have a solution to your problem...
    Is your iPad jailbroken?

    Jailbreaking an iPad is a way of installing apps and tweaks that Apple would not approve. It gives you control over the look and operation of your iPad. If you don't know what jailbreaking is, then it is not likely that your iPad is jailbroken.

    Here's a thread that explains jailbreaking. http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2838-jailbreaking-explained.html

    I started with Macs back in 1986 (geezer) and this reminds me of the utility that came with early Mac system software. Can't really recall its name (System Utilities?) but it allowed a user to go into the system files and change appearances and other customization tricks. Think I'll pass on the jail break thing. I'm pretty satisfied with the way my original iPad is working now that I've learned to control certain aspects of the system. I'll read through the explanation though. It's pretty long.
