    Recently, my ipad1 has been crashing a lot. Usually it crashes from an app and returns to the main screen. It isn't exclusive to one app. Sometimes it's when I use text on sketchbook pro, use GarageBand or play Drawsomething Sometimes it's from safari or Facebook. I paid for 64 G and haven't used it all up, so wouldn't have thought it's a memory issue.

    Can I do anything?

    The iPad 1 only has 256GB of RAM, new apps and newer versions of older apps use more memory than older apps did. Also, apps in the multi task bar will use some memory, even though they aren't active. It's getting easier for the RAM on the iPad 1 to be overwhelmed, kicking you out of whatever app you're currently using. All you can do is make sure to close any apps you aren't currently using, to have as little going on in the background as possible.

    BTW, storage memory is separate from system RAM and won't affect the performance of the iPad.

    I've had good luck using the System Status app from the App Store. It always me to periodically clear memory which helps with the crashing issue. Some apps are unusable anymore due to frequent crashes (Atomic Web).
