Documents 2 Go crashes when I open a second document

    Have I screwed something up or is this just how iOS multi-tasking works?

    I go into email, have a spreadsheet attachement. I click and hold on the attachment and chose Open In, Documents 2 Go. I double tap the Home button and click on email, find another email that has a Spreadsheet attachment, tap and hold the attachment and chose Open IN, Documents 2 Go. It tries to open the Docs 2 Go app again and crashes before the document loads.

    I even tried closing all the open apps and tried it again. Same results every time I open the second attachement.

    I suppose I could save the attachements and try opening them through Documents to Go instead of through email. But I'm hoping there's a better solution. Isn't this thing suppose to have some level of multi-tasking?

    The most likely reason for the crash is that it's running out of RAM - how big are these files?

    I've just tried 2 docs and works OK for me. As epb suggested, maybe the docs are too large?

    It happens on any document, regardless of size. I tried it on a couple one page, simple text docs. I mean, they had some tabs at the beginning of paragraphs, but no other fancy formatting. Sounds like I may have a bad install. Is there a way to uninstall an app? Just long press and tap the X?

    I also wonder...maybe I just have too many documents synced in docs to go. I have about 20 gig synced to my desktop and docs to go does take a long time to load. Maybe I need to trim that directory down.
