A touch screen works by sending a slight static charge to ones finger....when the circuit is complete it can determine a location.
The screen going crazy like that looks like it is either plugged in to a non grounded outlet or it is coming in contact with an electro static field.

I agree theoretically that could be the explanation. However, it happens when it is not plugged into any outlet and in a variety of locations, held and not held. It's going to the repair centre in 25 minutes so time will tell, but my belief is that it has dodgy sensors. I believe the way a touch screen works is effectively via an array of voltmeters, which are aligned both horizontally and vertically. They measure the voltage across each horizontal and vertical line and determine the location of the touch by the intersection. If there is noise in these readings, the iPad will think it is being touched when it is not.
Shaking Apps -
I have the same problem... It just started 5 mins ago. I restarted and everything is still shaking. Thought my ipad was possessed! Glad I'm not the only one. Please let me know apple says the problem is. In the meantime I will record video of the crazy shakes as well.
Welcome to the iPad Forums, Sharon. It's good to "see" you and I hope you enjoy your visit(s) here.

Cause, from re-reading the thread, it sounds as if this is a job for the Geniuses at the Apple store. Hopefully, they'll be able to get it sorted for you.
Oh, but have you tried a reset of the iPad? It won't change any of your settings or delete any apps, but it may help (and Apple will ask if you've tried it, anyway). To do, with apologies if you know:
RESET: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears (on some iOS versions, the "slide to power off" button will appear; just ignore it). Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear
Good luck and do let us know how you get on.
