    I just got an iPad 2 64gb and I'm having a frustrating problem. Sometimes (not always) when I go to view a photo, the Facebook app shuts down. Repeated attempts to view the photo keep shutting the app down. How can I fix this? Many thanks to anyone who can help me.

    This happen to me a couple days ago but it only happened on one photo from a friends page. When I went to their page the photo was no longer there. Maybe they deleted it? The photo was reposted or it showed up a couple days later. That was the only time it happened. I tried to view it 3-4 times with the same result you are having. Has not happened again.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    With regards to your question 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 along the bottom. It will show all the apps that you have opened at one time or another. 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. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now, let us know how you go.
