New iPod Touch 4G crashing

A lot of times when I am on Safari or the Facebook app on my new iPod Touch 4G (running iOS 5) it randomly crashes and quits. What should I do?

Restore it and set it up as a new iPod.

Ok. Should I restore it with a backup? Or does that just defeat the purpose of restoring it?

Well I haven't had a lot of time this week to do it yet. But it hasn't been crashing as much so I am not sure if I am going to restore it yet.

have you been clearing the multitasking bar? It only has 256mb so it can get laggy if you have lots of apps open.
I recommend the app Memory Booster HD from the app store ($0.99) it frees up some RAM making your device a bit faster.

Yes I have been clearing the multitasking bar. And does Memory Booster HD actually work? Or is it just a scam?
