    Of late my iPad 1 has become very slow to open apps and is not quickly responsive to taps , sometimes requiring 2 or 3 taps to action. Memory is no where near full. Advice would be welcome.

    Hi osborneuk,
    Just a thought, how many apps do you have running in the background? How long has it been since you restarted your iPad from being fully turned off?
    Is your iPad jailbroken? If so, do you have a different picture for each page of app icons? I had seven different background pictures. It was pretty, but very sluggish.
    To fully shutdown your iPad, press and hold the top power button until you see the slider appear at the top of the screen. It should say slide to power off. Slide the slider. Wait for the iPad to shut down. When the screen is black with no light at all, press and hold the power button for about two seconds. The apple logo should appear. Let go of the power button and wait for the iPad to reboot.
    A different way to reboot the iPad would be to press and hold both the top power button and the front Home button. Keep holding even when the power down slider appears. It'll go away again. Keep holding until the screen goes black and the apple logo appears then let go of the buttons.
    I guess you already know how to shut off the apps running in the background.
    Let me know if you stop having the laggy problem.

    All apps closed? Jailbroken? Location On?

    If you're running on iPad 1 with iOS 5.1.1 then it may be the case, I've seen reports and complaints of users on iPad 1 having a breakdown due to the slowness of the iPad itself when on 5.1.1

    If it's not, I'll check again later. :p

    Are you located in the United States? There is a regional restriction that only allows users located in the US to access and use this app.

    Yup! 5.1.1 it is. Does this mean I'm stuck with this problem until the next upgrade? Would a factory reset then upgrade help?

    Cheers

    I'm afraid that there will be no more upgrades for the iPad 1. iOS 5.1.1 is as far as it gets.While there will be bug fixes and tweaks from time to time, there will be no major upgrades,such as the one from iOS 5.1.1 to 6.0.
