It seems you're using a 2nd generation iPod touch running iOS 5.1, right?
The newest iOS devices are iPhone 4S and the new iPad and they, of course, run iOS 5.1 very well. iPad 2 and iPhone 4 can also run it without any problems.
Except for the new iPad (1GB RAM), the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 both sport 512MB RAM.
For the iPhone 3GS, 3rd and 4th generation of iPod touch (current), they only have 256MB RAM. They all can run iOS 5.1 but the speed isn't that fast.
Now, the device you're using is the 2nd generation of iPod touch and it's got only 128MB RAM. Officially it supports up to iOS 4.2.1. So if you say you bought your iPod touch and it is running iOS 5.1, the previous owner may have installed iOS 5 on it unofficially.
The reason why Apple won't let you run iOS 5 on the 2nd gen. iPod touch is simply that the hardware just can't run it well. So if you want it to be snappy, downgrade it to iOS 4.

To be more specific than MicBook has been, a 2nd generation iPod Touch cannot run iOS 5.
So if you bought this iPod new from Apple, then you need to confirm wehich generation of Touch you have - and you can do that at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353
On the other hand, if you bought it second hand ...
By the way, what do you mean by "online Apps"? Do you mean an App that then goes online form the App (which has loaded from your iPod)?

I have the latest iPod Touch 4th G & yes its very slow with lag issues!...I thought with today's technology this generation iPod Touch 4th G would be faster!?...I have an older 3rd G & its a bit quicker!?...Something definitely went wrong either with last update or gadget!
