    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    When an app behaves strangely it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. 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, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, let us know how you go.

    No just closing an app will not do anything untoward, it just clears it from ram. Apps play up from time to time and this is the first step to rectify it.

    I'm not sure what happens as far as the new app is concerned and I have never used MSN but you should be able to clear the problem with it so that you can get in and retrieve that info. What iPad do you have?

    Yes this would be a ram issue on an iPad 1. Your iPad has 256 mb of ram compared with the iPad 2 with 512mb and the new iPad with 1 GB of ram. The best step is to close all your apps regularly, especially Safari. Deleting your history and cookies from Safari will also clear out more ram and limiting any location services will all help to limiting troubles on your iPad. Do all this and you shouldn't have a problem accessing that info, let us know how you go.
