1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

Hit home twice then eliminate all open apps

    K, I have tried to close the gazillion open apps on iPad and iPhone. Can't seem to do it. My iPad in particular gets squirrelly if I don't do this now and again. I did a hard restart. They are all still in the bottom waiting to be closed. There must be something new I have to do, bur I don't know what it is.

    All help is appreciated

    Depending on the software on your iPad, this is what you have to do:

    iOS 6: after double tapping Home button, tap and hold one of the apps until they all start to wiggle, then delete them (x).
    iOS 7: same procedure to reveal multitask bar, then drag thumbnails above app icons towards the top of the screen.
