It was nearly impossible to create this post: This update is the worst thing ever to befall my beloved iPad mini. It's ruined. The developers should be ashamed, and I hope they are scrambling around to come up with 8.0.1 immediately. The device's performance is now slow and twitchy. Safari is all but unusable now, with major load and reload problems, buttons not working, multiple tab switching malfunctions, HUGE issues with keyboard shortcuts and auto-form fill....and did I mention it's slow? I don't mean just a little slow. I'm talking 20, 40, 90 second and more to open a web page that was taking 1/2 of a second on Wednesday morning. And that's when they open at all. Some won't at all; crashing or freezing. I can't upload any photos. There are problems switching from one app the another, there are visual blinks and lags of various duration. Apps spontaneously closing. And all these problems I found without even looking. What other issues am I going to experience as time goes on. Woe is me for downloading it! My iPad was running swimmingly on Wednesday. I was going to show someone just how cool this machine is, to talk them into getting an Apple tablet. But I can't show them this! I would be embarrassed. Apple Corp. - what are you going to do about it?
