iPod Touch 5G running slow? RAM problems?
Well it's just really slow for some reason. I downloaded this app that lets me monitor the RAM usage. If I delete everything from the multitasking menu, then the free memory goes up to around 35% - 40%. However, if I have more than three apps open, the free memory immediately drops down to below 5%. Is this normal?
Thanks in advance.
*Salas, no it's not jailbroken. Today I deleted all the apps from the multitasking menu and opened up Metalstorm only, then I did the same with my iPad 2, which has the same CPU, GPU, and RAM. When I checked the RAM monitor afterwards, iPod was below 5% again, while the iPad was around 20%. Should I take my Ipod in to an Apple Store?
*Racoonboy, I turn it off every night. I don't know if this is true - I'm just speculating, but I think the problem was caused by the case I bought. Maybe it caused overheating, and this caused the iPod to slow down.

I doubt the apple store would do anything, try to hard reset your device. That usually refreshes the ram. (Hard reset does not erase anything and you hold lock & home button down until the apple logo appears, ignoring the slide to power off)
PC: FX 6300, hd 7870, 8gb ram, 120gb ssd, 1tb hdd, define r4, rosewill 630w, MSI 970a-g43.
Stuff: 1st gen iPad Mini, iPod touch 4

For all i know, Ipod 5 and ipad 2 has same ram 512mb which should be plenty. I hardly experienced force close on my Ipad and there is no obvious lag or stutter on games.
Ipod is a lot smaller device but retina might eat up more ram, i dont know. Still it should be plenty to move around because my iphone4 is the same ram and worse cpu.
Maybe u should turn it off and on once in awhile.
