    :( I just Updated my iPad a few days back.. As in other Posts I've read Lagging / Freezing / Just plane not responding as previously.. What could it be ?? For me I find slow to respond to the touch, kinda lost the sweet spot if you will kinda thing..lol.. ie: On YouTube.. If I wanted to move the video along just tapped and moved the dot video & sound would continue instantaneously.. Now it doesn't respond right away.. Have to Tap around looking for that sweet spot..lol.. If it's me and something is out of sink or a Setting turned off. ... Please Tell ...Cheers. Thanks.. :confused: :oops:

    Try to reset it, using the Home and Power button. This could help a bit.

    There's no way to have an influence on the reaction of the touchscreen, afaik, and also no setting to improve it.

    Here's something you can try: http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1827

    If you updated over the air, erase the iPad and restore it using iTunes. Maybe this will improve the performance. In general, new software needs a few days to fit in, so hopefully it will get better within the next days.

    Maybe it has to do with your RAM. If you have background refresh on, try force closing ALL the apps that uses background app refresh. It's not necessary to force close other apps that doesn't have background app refresh on because those apps are automatically "freezed" by iOS, so they won't run in the background apps that uses background app refresh.

    OR try a reinstall of YT instead. If that doesn't work, a restore should do it. Remember to back up before restoring.

    I downgraded back to 7.1.2 just too much lag and general slow down of using the device (not download/upload speed). To be honest there was not a lot of difference in 8.0 for me to really care.

    Its kinda confusing why some devices with the same generation works fine and the others work terribly. It must likely be how the user handles or uses their devices or maybe there is something wrong with their devices. I could be wrong.

    Short answer: Stuff Happens.

    Slightly longer answer: Computers are incredibly complex. It's pretty amazing that they work as often as they do. :)
