Unless u have bad network.. Just keep ur hdd on ur pc, and download streamtome..

IMO, better then plex if u have knowledge on port forwarding, and good home/ mobile network.

Apple wouldn't use dual core with 1GB RAM if they know those specs wouldn't suffice the needs of the OS. But they did. Meaning: IT'S ENOUGH.

Did you know gamers on PC, they did not even bother greater then 8GB ram? They rather go for OVERCLOCKING ram, and FAST ram!

iPad is build as per above. Fast ram/ fast cpu/gpu. Number of cores/ capacity of ram is nothing if its slow like turtle.

> In reply to ashok @ 2014-04-19 19:18 from Hx7A - click to readPersonally, I highly recommend iPad Air. I use one currently (the 32GB silver version) and it's totally stunning. Right from the first time I opened it until now, it's pretty responsive and fast. It has beautiful graphics, too so I enjoy playing Real Racing 3 and Batman. Even with multitasking, this iPad handles the job very well. It's just a little too pricy but it's worth every cent. :)

Lighting performance with Dual-core 1.3 GHz processor and 1gb ram. Wow. Only apple can do that. Apple is amazing.

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."

> In reply to ary @ 2014-04-17 13:08 from SHPy - click to readThanks, i try it, when i can. 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.

> In reply to Light-kun @ 2014-04-17 08:10 from thYa - click to readHe insinuated that it is not a problem, yet the web is full of complaints about this. ITS A WELL KNOWN FACT, iOS7 feels slow, and it IS a problem. And you two say i am ranting? Just search and read.

"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?
