iPad Apps Not Working Correctly

We all know there are so many great apps available to use with an iDevice.  But what happens when you are running an app, or another function on your iPad, and apps aren't responding as you've experienced in the past?  Here are some suggestions you can try to remedy the problem.

Suggestion 1:  Kill the app 

  • Use the four finger gesture "swiping up" on your home screen to reveal the task bar, or double tap on the home button.

  • Press and hold on an app in the task bar until they squiggle
  • Kill the app(s) you want to restart

Suggestion 2:  Restart your iPad 

  • Press and hold the power button and home button until the red "Slide to Power Off" bar appears, and shut down your iPad.  This will completely shut down the iPad
  • Wait a minute or so, and start iPad again

Suggestion 3:  Reset all Settings 

  • Go into Settings - General - Reset (found near the bottom)

  • Choose Reset All, and you should not lose any data
  • Note:  all settings will be reset so you may have to enter in some you didn't realize
