    I hope I am at the right place because I am not sure if this is primarily for technical issues on my IPad My problem relates to a game. I have been trying to access entry at one of the beginning pages, daily bonus page. This has never happened before. I have been playing this game for over a year. When I click on the "x" to go to another page on Gardens of Time, it won't allow me. I can still play it on my IPhone but I have loss of vision in one eye which makes it difficult because it is so small. Can anyone please suggest what I can do to alleviate the issue on the IPad? Also maybe I need to be tutored in "forums"? I hope this all makes sense to someone. Thanks to whomever comes to my rescue!

    You can try resetting your iPad, for which you have to press and hold the home and power button simultaneously for 10-20 seconds.

    If this doesn't work, nothing comes to my mind short of deleting and reinstalling the app, which MAY delete all data.

    Welcome to iPF! Enjoy your time here!

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Yes, you are in the right place and our Forum covers many areas including an Off Topic area where we just all chat and share. I also play this game and that's strange what you're experiencing and I've never had it happen to me and I don't think I would like to play this game on my iPhone either, it would just be so difficult.

    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. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. If you have updated to IOS7 - just swipe up on the image above the app icon to close it. If on an earlier OS - 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, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. Now see if it's working....if not we follow up with a Restart and if still no joy, a reset.

    Restart - Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating.

    reset - Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you may see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.

    These steps are the first steps to take whenever you are having an issue with your iPad.....let us know if it has fixed this issue.

    Below you will find a link to our app which I find much simpler than the site to use, there is also a link to a Tutorial for our app which will show you all the different areas of the Forum and a few tips on how our Forum works! Enjoy!!

    I tried most everything above and still had had the problem. Ultimately I cleared my browser and cookies. And Walla... it worked. I don't
    really understand what I did but after a week and half of being frustrated the game was up and working. I am so grateful I found this site.
    Thanks so much for everyone's help.
