Hi, Thanks for all you feedback.
What I have done is hooked up the 2nd IPAD to the same Itunes account I have and called the device another name (ie Mums Ipad). I also unchecked sync apps automatically which is all good.
I have however come across a small problem and maybe have done something wrong. WHen I went to select the apps I wanted to syn to "Mums Ipad" I checked the boxes next to teh apps and then hit apply in the bottom right hand corner of itunes. The message at tehtop of teh screen said syncing apps and the apps appeared on the Ipad as expected. The issue that is occuring is that when i slect one of these apps on the Ipad now it looks as though it wants to start, then the screen goes blank for about half a second and then I am page on the page showing all the apps.
This happens for all the apps I have just sync'd. The apps that the device comes pre loaded with are all ok and open fine. Has anybody come acrosss this before?
Sometimes, it takes a bit for the iPad to "digest" newly loaded apps - especially if you put a whole bunch on at once (like you would if you sync from iTunes).
So, try the olde standard "fix"- either a restart or a reset (or both):
Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.
Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears (the slide to unlock screen may or may not appear). 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.
If that doesn't work, let us know. Else, let us know how you get on. Good luck.
You are an absolute Star! It worked using the "Restart" Option. Thanks again for getting back so quickly with a solution.
Glad it worked for you! Always glad to hear positive feedback!
Hope your Mum likes her iPad as much as mine likes hers. She was very hesitant at the start when I gave it to her. Now? Heh. You couldn't pry it from her hands! :D
