    Using 8.0.2, I keep running into an annoying glitch on my iPad Air. A new webpage will load in Safari and if I go to tap on a link on the page, it doesn't respond. It only works after I scroll a bit up and down and then try the tap again. What gives?!

    I'm baaaaack
    I'm noticing that, too.
    And YouTube vids won't open for me at all on my iPad Air.
    I was thinking they were screen shots at first!

    I have the same issue. Originally I thought it was Safari, turns on it happens inside the feedly reader too. Any youtube link I can't get it to play. It takes several taps to get it playing.

    I have issues with the Engadget app, I can't open any of the links. Also USA Today has no audio on any of there videos and the app itself is constantly crashing. My iPad also crashes on FB whenever I zoom in on a picture. Wtf?

    I'm having it as well on the iPad Mini Retina, I have to zoom up the website little bit to be able to tap open the link.

    iOS8 is terrible.. I did a fresh install on my iPad air and can not believe how bad it runs. Sometimes, my iPad won't even scroll until I swipe my finger up and down the same article four or five times and then it will finally respond..

    I can't stand this update. IOS8 is garbage.. and to think i own an iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro...

    This update is terrible, my devices went from me loving using them to just getting constantly frustrated by both my iPhone (5s) and my iPad air..

    I do love Yosemite.. but the iOS update is just garbage.. I really hope 8.1 makes my devices a joy to use again..

    I found a workaround for getting imbedded YouTube videos to play. Here it is: Don't press on the red 'play' button with the white triangle symbol in it (which is what you're supposed to tap on), instead, tap anywhere else on the video and it will play! Oh, Apple, you're testing my fanboy faith this time...
