IPAD 2 Genious
I have my ipad2 for a couple of months and so far worked ok until this morning.
Trying to open genious in APP. STORE from the ipad says downloading but nothing comes up on screen. You can see from the top that you can change to the next page (3) but nothing shows up. I had 3 pages yesterday evening total 15 apps showing up but today I get 3 blank pages.
I have made a reset but no luck.
Can anyone help please??

Members have been reporting problems with the App Store this morning.
However, try this....
The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-
Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.
Thanks for the reply. I had already did what you mentioned and did it again now but still no luck. It is like it does not down load the applications. You can go from page to page and watch the arrow change color but no picture.
Have tried all the other functions and they work ok. Tried also switching genious on and off but still the same.
Can't think of anything else. Think is it was working last night and without doing anything just stopped.
I really do not know what happened. All of a sudden without doing anything it started working again.
Thanks for the help
