    I have the same issue on my gen1 64gb 3G unit. It's painfully slow since the IOS 5 upgrade.

    Glad to hear others are having the same issue, I thought something was wrong with my iPad too. I even have a delayed response when typing. I have the first iPad .

    I've noticed it on occasion, but thought it was my ISP. I have also noticed occasional slow response when typing, but the norm.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page.

    My first thought would be - is this a working memory problem? The iPad has only 250MB in which apps can actually run and the iPad2 has, I think, 500MB. After using several apps on my iPad there can be as little as 5MB left unused and this can cause unexpected slow downs and crashes to apps which are normally well behaved.

    One way to free up some working memory is to reboot the iPad by holding the Home and Sleep buttons down at the same time for at least 7 seconds until you see a blank screen.

    Another way is to use an app which came out this month called Process Killer. (It was free when I downloaded it and may still be free) I have found this very useful. You can see a graphical representation on screen as it frees up working space. One advantage of using this app as far as I can see is it doesn't remove the icons of the recently used apps you find by double tapping the Home button so you can still get at those quickly. Don't worry if it looks as though Process Killer sometimes crashes. It just means it has freed up the memory it was using!

    Grimbarian, I make a habit of rebooting at least 2x's/day and periodically ending task by double clicking the home button then ending the running programs in the lower ribbon bar. I have made some iCloud configuration changes. Originally I was backing up to my MBP and only syncing bookmarks. I have since turned off bookmark syncing to see if that has any relation to speed. Nothing conclusive yet.

    Does "process killer" go by another name? I don't see it in the App Store.

    Zulu789: I typed in the words process killer this morning and it was found straight away. I wonder if it is one of those apps which seem to be available only in some areas. I'm in the UK.
