My ipad 3 runs slow and keeps freezing

Hi My wife and I each have an ipad 3. When we use them they run very slowly, often freezing for up to around 5 minutes. When this happened to my android phone I found an app which cleaned everything up and all was well. I cannot find a similar app for the ipad. Anyone got any recommendations?

What are you doing when this happens?

Can be anything. Using Facebook or other apps usually. Playing music seems ok and browsing the net loads slowly but doesn't seem to freeze. I've deleted lots of apps today but this seems to have made no difference. I've shut it down and restarted it but haven't resorted to a factory reset yet. The problem has been getting worse over the last 6 - 8 months or so.

Maybe try Speedtest by Ookla to see if you are getting a decent speed from your ISP.

You should change this one if it is in warranty you can exchange this.....
