FaceTime App Causing Freeze-up Issues on iPad 2

FaceTime is one of the two new built-in apps on the iPad 2 that take advantage of its new front and back facing cameras. It’s also one of the slick new features of the iPad 2 – and to me it feels like the iPad 2 is the natural and best fit for FaceTime

It looks like not all iPad 2 users are having as good an experience as I have with FaceTime though. Apple Insider reports that a number of iPad2 users are having severe issues with the app freezing up.

A few kinks apparently still need to be ironed out with the newly released iPad 2, as some users have reported freezing issues with the FaceTime video chat feature, requiring a restart of the device.

A handful of users on Apple’s support forums have posted to a growing thread where they have described a problem where the image displayed by the forward-facing camera on the iPad 2 crashes in the FaceTime application.

I haven’t seen these sort of issues at all with FaceTime so far, and I’ve run it with many other apps also running in the background. I hope Apple’s next iOS update will squash these issues though.

How is FaceTime working for you so far? Are you seeing any freezing problems when using it?

    1. I’m not sure if you’re joking, but if you’re serious you’ll need to provide a bit more information about what problem you’re having in order to get some useful suggestions.
