    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Regarding your question has the app already downloaded? Is the problem with opening it then or can't you download it at all? Give these steps a try from the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar along the bottom. It will show all the apps that you have opened at one time or another. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now, if not a restart is in order.

    Restart: Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will start again. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running smoothly. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is the next step.

    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset.

    When an App or your iPad begin to behave strangely these are the first steps you should do to rectify it. Let us know how you go, good luck!!

    All I can suggest now is to delete the app and then redownload it and hopefully it will be fine this time. Give it a go and let us know.

    I've deleted and re download and it's still the same thing, it asks me for my iTunes password and when I enter it it just quits!! Well can you suggest another Ereader for me to down load or only iBook will do because it's an iPad ?

    I just don't understand why this is happening. You say it's asking for your iTunes password, so did it download or not? I thought from your other posts that it had downloaded.
    Another reading app is the Kindle app and I get books from DigiReader Lounge. Very easy and they will send an email each day if you like with a selection of books according to your tastes. Lots of free ones also. Hope this helps.
    Hopefully someone else can suggest an answer to your problem.
