    I have had a couple of freezes and crashes but I haven't found an obvious pattern to it.

    Seeing as you posted in the iOS 8 section your experiencing this on the Beta and as mentioned you will have these issues from time to time

    Advice you report it to Apple so they can address it for the next Beta release

    Thanks

    I can see this happening with long conversation threads or threads with lots of pictures and videos.

    My messages app still freezes up on iOS 8.1. I do use the SwiftKey keyboard. I don't think I'm alone. Many are having this issue. It happens to me about 10 times a day. I have to force quit the app. Safari also has freezing issues.

    Same here, found this thread searching for the same issue. 2-day old iPhone 6, seems to mostly freeze in Messages, though it's happened in Mail as well.

    I'm also using SwiftKey. I'm thinking that might be the common factor. I'm going back to the stock keyboard for now.

    When an app freezes, I'm able to use the Task Switcher to switch to other apps. But the only way to fix the frozen app is to close it and re-open.

    That's what I do. I haven't seen it in Mail. I've had some freezing in Safari. Like when I enter my email on a log in, a letter gets stuck big. Like this: the whole page freezes. I have to force close Safari.

    Looking like a 3rd party keyboard issue. It's never happened on my i5s and iOS 8.1 running the Native Keyboard

    No, a friend has the Safari issue, and she does not use 3rd party keyboards. You can find others on the Apple forums with the same problem. The messages app freezing may be the 3rd party keyboard. But I don't like the stock keyboard. It's hard on my eyes. I like SwiftKey and the dark keyboard. I just hope Apple will fix the problem.

    Yea, it’s only happened to me when using swype, but not enough for me to stop using it.

    Not freezing, but the issue I am having is when I slide to the left to delete messages, sometimes the delete function doesn't work and the message stays in place. It take multiple attempts on some of the messages to delete them.

    I narrowed this issue down to third party keyboards. As soon as I stopped using them everything works as expected.

    I just deleted swiftkey and it stopped freezing.
    So much for the hype about iphones now allowing 3rd party keyboards!

    Same here. The moment I got rid of the 3rd party keyboards, it returned to its normal state!

    It really messes up when also in contacts as well like when tapping on another field, the first word tapped goes back to the first field. Messages also has an issue, I didn't get the freezing but it somehow went back to the stock keyboard. I gave it another try and Probably will only use the stock keyboard. Apple needs to address those issues with iOS9

    I still use SwiftKey as my default keyboard. Even with an occasional freeze, I prefer it to the stock keyboard. The stock keyboard messes me up too much with autocorrect and shortcut issues. I may need to reset the dictionary in settings.
