    Hi All,

    This is my first iOS device (Ipad 2). I am absolutely loving it so far. Life long Android guy who owns an EVO 4G. Had the Xoom but the lack of apps and my being impatient is what made me return it. Anyway, I was just curious after reading a few articles on the Safari Checkerboard issues that the first Ipad had. seems like this should be a non-issue with the Ipad 2 but I am experiencing it when looking at long scrolling pages and switching between pages in Safari. All when I am scrolling. I tryed this on CNN's site to be specific. Is anyone else experiencing this? I am trying to determine if this is an issue with the memory on my Ipad 2 or just normal. i did a fresh re-start of the Ipad and also closed many programs running in the background.
    Anyone care to shed some light?

    Thanks :)

    I'm not sure what you mean. If you mean how the page shows a pattern in the blank spot of the webpage that hasn't fully loaded yet, I think that's normal; and how it loads.

    I know on the iPad1, which is the only iOS device I own, that when the page fully loads and you scroll down with a quick swipe, like 3/4 of the page is checkerboard for a second or two before it pops up. Its very annoying. Does this more in alternative browsers for me than Safari, but certainly an issue in safari as well. Gets worse the more tabs you have opened.

    To the op, does the Ipad reload webpages when you hit the back button? How about if you have multiple tabs open and you switch inbetween them, do they have to reload? The iPad does this because it only has 256mb ram and its semi infuriating.

    As I have been digging to learn more about iPAD, one of the sites showed this checker boarding as you described and attributed it to memory. The iPAD2 is faster, better rendering and twice the memory, it supposedly solved the checkerboarding issue. Are we talking iPAD1 checkerboarding, or iPAD2?

    The iPAD2 is faster, better rendering and twice the memory, and iOS4.3 which is also more efficient in memory usage. All this supposedly solved the checkerboarding issue.

    I was just playing with the iPad 2 at Best Buy and the issue is most definitely still there. So ANNOYING!

    It is there still, but not nearly as bad.

    Far from a deal breaker. And it generally only happens with very full webpages that would be slow to load on most devices.


    On the first iPad, it would checkerboard EVERYWHERE.
