Hi, I'm Skylar. If you've noticed that your iPod is a little bit slow at running certain applications there are a couple of things you can try. First, turn your iPod off by holding the sleep wake button down for a while and then slide to power off. What this does is run a bunch of routines and subroutines that clear out all the memory and caches and stuff like that in your iPod. So chances are it was probably working on something that didn't actually have to work on and that was taking up part of its attention. So I'm just going to turn it back on and we'll see it boot back up. That will solve a lot of problems, general slowness definitely it acting weird certainly it does a lot of different things so it's actually a really good habit to shut your iPod down or any IOS device pretty regularly. So this will boot back up and I'll show you another trick that you can do. Certain applications only a very few of them will take up system resources when they're running in the background it's especially common among applications that use location services or receive push notifications like mail. So press your home button twice and that way you can take a look at everything that's currently running, in my case not a whole lot of stuff. If I rest finger on an application I can tap the red circle in order to quit it. So first shut your iPod down then when you boot it back up you can quit applications and those two things will unlock what ever performance you had locked up by those apps. So games might run a little bit faster, applications might load a little bit more quickly, but ultimately you're limited by the speed of the processor and it's amount of RAM. So you know you're always going to be fighting off the urge to upgrade to the newest iPod is basically what it comes down to. Thanks for watching. I'm Skylar.
