    I have been able to play all type of games on my iPad 1 since 2013. Games like township, sims free play and contract zombies but lately they just keep crashing. Is there any way around this? I have tried playing on airplane mode it has helped before. I also would remove the game from being in the history. The bottom of the iPad when you hold the home button. All that use to work. But now nothing seems to work. If you can help me that would be lovely.
    Thank you !!

    It's possible that some of those games were updated to the point where they no longer work on iOS 5.1.1. The crashing problem could also be caused by the limited RAM on the iPad 1, which only has 256mb of RAM.
    If, by removing a game from being in the history, you mean the App Store purchase history, it can't be done. The best you can do is go to the App Store purchase history through iTunes on your computer and hide those games. They'll still be in the purchase history but will not be visible.

    In regards to the home button, are you saying the button no longer works?

    I recently got a BT controller for iOS and for now I'm happy with the selection of games that use it. Sure I want more but since I'm just starting playing these, I can be patient. The controller changed those games greatly. More games should be compatible with it and more worthy games should be released - but I'm fine for now, I'm sure they are coming.
