2. Start CyberTuner and insure that version 6.9.8x or later is installed. Tap the CyberTuner's About icon at the bottom right. Installing the latest iRCT version now will make the transition easier!
3. Make sure you have your iRCT ID (email username) and password. You will need them after updating to iOS 8.

This is the same issue that exists on all platforms for any program which needs significant resources such as RCT. However on iOS with 700,000 apps available and many users having hundreds of apps on their iOS devices it's more common to have dozens, scores or even a hundred or more apps open and running in the background.
If you have any trouble with the CyberEar/Chameleon seeming slow, or any spinner issue, please exit all other apps!
1.To exit apps, tap the Home button below the screen to close the currently running app INCLUDING CYBERTUNER!
2.From the home screen quickly double tap the home button. This shows all the running applications (at the bottom for iOS 6).
3. iOS 7/8: Swipe each app's window up to exit.
3. iOS 6: Press an app icon for 2-3 seconds until they "wiggle", and tap the red "minus" badge appears on the icon to exit.
4. Exit all apps including CyberTuner.
Explanation: Apps running in the background use memory and cpu time. If you have a large number of apps (or just one that's a hog) they may leave little or no resources for Chameleon and/or CyberEar to do its usual excellent job.
Please remember that iRCT has no way to exit other apps by itself, you will have to help it out.
