Regarding app launching and multitasking, the OS does an incredible job. My iPad Air is a LOT faster than my friends' android tablets in that matter.

By the way, since i am an useful person i post my findings here anyway. Animations cannot be speed up but the UI motion and zooming can, go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion > On

This helps, it does feel faster, but slow animations remain and jailbreak is needed to remedy it.

Note that the keyword is FEEL faster, i quote:
"I am not saying it actually makes your device faster. Iím saying that it will make it seem faster. Opening a folder, launching an application, unlocking the device with Touch ID definitely feel more responsive and immediate, although only some scientific testing could confirm this."

If still needed that is, one of our laptops got issues so i guess i be buying an x86 Win 8.1 tablet, i have a good excuse for it now =) Wanted the Sony Vaio Tap 11 since i first saw it, the Core i5 version with 512GB SSD. 128GB iPad isnt horrible but dosnt quite cut it.

The iPad was mostly for my daughter anyway, its always with her, she cant even go outside without it.

"One of the primary complaints that I hear about iOS 7, outside of the obvious beef with the app icons, is the slow animation speed. iOS 7 uses animations to add a sense of depth to the interface, and Iím a big fan of the effect. Unfortunately, the effect does add some perceptual slowness to the experience, whether the slowness actually exists or not."

Anyway, there is no solution to this, the only tweaks that can be done involves jailbreak. Hopefully future updates will improve it a bit.

Ranting here wouldn't get one anywhere. So better check the Apple website for support for the device involved.

Man why are apple fans so delicate and attack people facing issues with apple products?

There are tons of people willing to help u there. Posting here with hating comments gets you nowhere, only retorts and anger, as you did not even scratch the surface of iOS.

From the way you describe how you use iPad, sound like a first timer.

By the way guys, will install an additional web browser, whats the best? I was thinking of Chrome but i hate everything Google, and FF isnt very good at all on Android so i assume its bad also on iOS.

Will likely still use Safari most but it aint as good as i expected, somewhat surprised to find that its based on the same engine as Konqueror, the default browser in many KDE desktop environments for Linux, and to be honest Konqueror isnt that great also, in that way Safari was not surprising.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-04-16 05:36 from PGXj - click to readIts confirmed to be an issue on all iOS 7 devices, stop lying. Fake users and whatever, dont yo have anything useful to say? Then dont say it. I think you are just a fanboy who cannot even afford iPad Air, and your technical level you have already proven to be nil. Im sure there is enough useful people here.

Anyone else, can i speed up the animations/transitions to get shorter time of unresponsiveness? As i said, its not as bad as on WP but enough to be a problem sometimes, i want my first tap to be registered every time, not by probability like some Quantum Mechanics theory.

Unless your scared that is.. and had to post it in places where there are tons of anti-apple users.

Post here, you might just a fake Apple user, maybe without even sign up anything apple and just click on links showing apple lag and trolling everywhere.

There is no such issues watsoever in ios 7.1 now.

Excuse me, on your previous comment, you haven't specified your problems with iTunes being the uploading of contents. So it's automatic that when you said iTunes, SYNCING data comes to mind first.
And as with the keyboard, if your problem is AUTOCORRECT, how could you be so innocent? Don't tell me with such a simplistic phone, you haven't checked settings and disabled autocorrect if that is what giving you problems. Don't insist on using it when it gives you headache. Btw, I've disabled mine so I'm not bothered with the good keyboard.

> In reply to Light-kun @ 2014-04-12 13:24 from uS}E - click to readAre you ok there? You reply to a post and you scream SYNC SYNC, who is talking about sync? Its about uploading content, which is a nightmare on iOS, and its a well known problem that is always mentioned by every professional reviewer as one of the main disadvantages of iOS, and you want to fix it by being obsessed with syncing, ok... Good luck.

You know very well whats wrong with the keyboard, why else are some people using third party keyboard apps to write messages and emails and then copy the text and go paste it in the email/messaging app. Its really stupid to try to force "corrected" words on us, always having to manually discard every single word. There are millions of autocorrect jokes on the web and you are saying its good, well...

You are wrong on all accounts. Bigger harddrives are in general faster because they have higher data density and/or reads from more platters simultaneously and thats a well known fact. That doesnt have anything to do with RAM though, you really think RAM is a storage?

I admit RAM wasnt causing the problem but you are still wrong.

Now i just need to find a way to shorten the time iOS decides to go unresponsive during animations and transitions. Would be nice if there were someone useful around.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-04-15 04:19 from PGXj - click to readDont be so useless. Someone tell me how can i fix this problem. I found that its iOS that is forcing the animations on me, if i tap anywhere before the animations/transitions are finished it doesnt register the tap, same retard method as WP8 uses, the OS simply does not respond while doing animations and thats hard getting used to, its inefficient and feels slow (not nearly as bad as WP though).

For example when i bring up the keyboard, it doesnt take long but its enough of a transition to make the system unresponsive just long enough ignore the first tap. Same happens when i use the appswitcher and bring up a running app, have to wait till its all the way up on the screen before it accepts input. Really stupid, Android and BlackBerry OS is so much better this way.

How to fix this? Can i turn off animations? Speed them up?

Pls no replys from fanboys who quote wikipedia about things he know nothing and "my dad has da fastest ram omfg"
