Hi to everyone out there!
I am hoping someone has experienced this problem with their IPad 3 and there is a simple solution. In the past 3 days, I've become very frustrated, because when I am using an app (for example, Safari, Facebook or the Apple Store apps), as I scroll through the page, all of a sudden, I get bumped off the page and my home screen appears. I reopen the app and scroll again and bang, it happens again. I don't want to start deleting and reinstalling apps, so I am reaching out to the community in hopes that someone has experienced this with their IPad 3 and they found an explaination and fix for this issue.

I resorted to a hard reset and all is well with my IPad 3!

Have you tried to do the following?
Do the first 2 steps first. Save step 3 as a last resort.
1. Force the app to close?
2. Try to restart your iPad?
3. Try to do a soft reset?
You can try this in order, if an app becomes funky.
Force the app to quit by pushing the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. By long pressing the app in question, it will begin to jiggle-press the red circle with the negative sign on the app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.
If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.
Third is to do a soft reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!
