    I'm just wondering, has anyone noticed that some programs with fast app switching maximize abnormally fast in iOS 4.1? It's most noticeable for me with Safari and Facebook. I hit the icon and instead of the normal smooth animation where the icons quickly fly off screen, it pauses a moment and then pops the app up very quickly. It's a different animation from what I'm used to on 4.0

    I know it's super OCD but I even restored and it's still doing it. Is anyone else noticing this?

    I know, right?? I almost can't believe I noticed/it bothers me. But it does. Laugh away!

    From 'You are pressing it wrong'.

    Wait....I know what it is. It's got to be related to how fast the battery discharges.

    Sorry, OP, but that is super OCD.

    Are you JB?

    Not jailbroken. Normal iOS 4.1 on an iPhone 4. Is there any way, by chance, to force itunes to redownload ios4? Maybe there's an error in a file somewhere.

    Duh...not enough coffee this afternoon. 4.1 isn't JB'able (yet).

    I've noticed this on 4.0.1 JB (and alert/sound delays), but some are pointing to it possibly being the 'activator' program.

    I highly doubt there's a file error somewhere.

    Probably more likely just a memory issue.

    Is it only after awhile of use (and many apps possibly open causing the memory issue), or will it happen immediately after a reboot (when mail and phone are most likely the only two apps open).

    It seems to open much quicker than most other stock Apple apps (except, Phone and Mail). However, it's still smooth for me, just a lot quicker than, say, Messages or Safari.

    So it's true! Call me OCD all you want, if others are experiencing it too, there must be SOME kind of problem. Not a real problem per se, haha, but a problem.

    Anyone else want to chime in? Making fun of me or contributing to the topic would both be welcome :D

    I seriously tried to downgrade because of this. When it told me my backup wouldn't work, I went back. It still does it. ;(

    Blink 10 times, wash your hands 10 times, lock and unlock the door 10 times then try again.

    I can confirm that I've seen this behavior in 4.1 and I downgraded as quickly as possible (while Apple was still signing the 4.0.2 baseband).

    My iPhone is nice and fast again... lag free.

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who was bothered by this. I put in a bug report at back as well as an official bug report at

    I hope they fix it as soon as possible. I can not stand jerky animations.

    Yes I have! I thought it was me, but I noticed Safari being super quick. I think it will be an easy fix.

    The more important question, does Apple products make people OCD or do OCD people tend to gravitate to Apple products? I'm a member of 75 or more forums but this is the most OCD place I've ever seen,

    I really wouldn't be OCD about something like this, but this thread does make me appreciate NOT upgrading to 4.1. I am still at the original 4.0 since launch and couldn't be more pleased with it. I never rush to get a software upgrade. I hate all the backing up and waiting....

    Honestly, I could care less about Game Center and Ping. Only thing I care for is maybe the HDR which should improve the camera's white balance, but I'm in no rush for it. I could wait until the 4.2 in November, but not a rush with that one either. It is hard to improve perfection. I am looking forward to Android's Gingerbread though because I think Android still needs far more improving....

    The key is to never upgrade right away. Some software updates is not really worth it. Wait a week or two after the official release and read the reviews. I think 4.1 is catered more for the iPhone 3G owners who went through hell with 4.0. But for iPhone 4 owners? Not really all that worth it with what it currently offers.

    "As Good as it Gets" shows that one must flick 5 times the light switch and always discard the soap after the first use w/ burning hot water: :)

    This happened to me with Twitter and Safari, I restored and set up as new (this wasn't the reason, my usage was matching my standby time even though I wasn't using the phone and sucking my battery dry) But as I did that it's all smooth again.

    Weird. I tried restoring as new and nothing changed for me.

    Try opening camera, don't taken any photos, then open Then go back to the home screen and press photos again. That's when I would see the lag. Also when opening voice memos more than once.
