    Yesterday, I upgraded my iPad os. Today, Facebook and many other apps will not work. They flash as though they are going to boot, then my wallpaper and desktop appear. Are there any fixes for this?

    Did you officially download the apps? If your iPad was jailbroken before and you downloaded your apps from a "third party" they won't work anymore.

    If you have not already done so try reseting the iPad. This has fixed most peoples post update problems.


    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    All of my apps were downloaded from the app store. I don't know the meaning of jailbroken, so I'm guessing it is not. The ipad came with Facebook, which now doesn't work, either.
    any suggestions?

    I have done a reboot and the hard shutdown you suggest. Neither fixed the problem. All of my apps were downloaded from the app store. Not even Facebook works, and FB came with the ipad. Any other suggestions?

    As a last ditch effort, you can always restore from iTunes, this will put your iPad to an out of box state.

    Facebook does not come with the iPad, so I have to guess that you bought the iPad from someone else that left their apps on the iPad.

    Here is the problem. Apps are associated with the account that purchased them. Without that account you can not update the apps, and chances are that the un-updated apps are not compatible with the updated iOS version.

    There is no way to transfer an app from one account to another. It is not just technical, but a matter of licensing and to help protect the developer from piracy. Apple prohibits it.

    In order to get an updated app that will work with the new iOS you will need to delete the current app and download it again with your own account. If it is free, no big deal. If not you will have to pay

    There are widespread problems with the FB app launching videos when it should not. You are not alone.
