Apple iPad Facebook crash

My wife likes Apple she has an iPhone and she wanted something like the iPhone except a little bigger so she could manage her business social media content easier.

So we got her a first generation iPad. It worked great until she went to share a link in Facebook using Safari and it would crash.  The crash log said it was a memory issue.  I did some research and tried the "disable all the iCloud stuff" and the problem continued. 

Then I discovered this is a problem that started in Sep 2012 and it even happens with the newer iPad's so it can't be a memory problem. It is a problem with Safari on Facebook. So I tried a bunch of other browser's like Dolphin, and Opera and still the same problem.  

Finally was about to start selling her on an Android tablet when didn't I find a fix.  Almost sort of wished I hadn't found a fix because I like Android. It's what I have for my phone. But here it is: the Atomic Lite browser(or pay for the full blown version) solves the problem of crashing on Facebook, and it is a really nice browser. I like it better than any of the other browsers that are available for the iPad first generation.

  1. The Atomic Lite browser started failing as well, looks like I'll be switching her to an Android tablet.
