    Has anyone else noticed a lag in response since installing the 4.2 download in the iPad?

    At the same time I also put the invisashield screen protector on my iPad,so can it be the screen protector more than the 4.2?

    Any feedback would be appreciated

    Remember the old expression "I've got good news, and I've got bad news."

    Good news with 4.2.1 is that it offers app-switching (so-called multi-tasking). The bad news is how that works - the apps don't stay open taking up memory - they're put in a save state, sort of bookmarked and written to disk. So whenever you close an app, there's a slight pause as it's saved to disk before shuts down. It's not a large file so it's not a long time, but noticeable. More so if your drive is almost full and/or you've got a lots of "bookmarks" out there.
