    Hi
    I have notice that a couple of my apps - Facebook & BBC news are not updating on my iPad 2 when left in the background. I have to manually update.
    If the app is closed down and then reopened will update o.k. I have tried deleting and reinstalling but the same happens.
    I also have iPod touch and the apps update o.k
    Has any one else experienced this problem, if so is it likely to be a problem with the apps or IOS5 software.
    All my other apps (including twitter) appear to update o.k in the background

    Very few app actually run in the background, and those that do are limited to specific services, and only if the developer supports the feature.


    Other than that what the iPad does is more akin to the old task switching that computer did before true multitasking. The most recent apps are held in RAM, ready to continue where they left off. Other apps may have their run states saved so they also start where they left off, but only after reloading (if the developer supports it).
