    Have you upgraded the latest iOS? Should be 5.1.1
    Possibly a new app could be causing the problem. Just Make sure you are updated to 5.1.1

    Hi there--

    To check this, you need to go to you settings/General/About/Version. Tell us what your version operating system your iPad is running.

    Hey Wanda--I just deleted your other post which wasa duplicate of this message. Please do not do this as it is against forum rules. We want to keep topics to one thread to make it easier for members to follow the discussion and assist as needed. This cannot be done when there are multiple threads present.

    Have you tried to do the following?

    Do the first 2 steps first. Save step 3 as a last resort.

    1. Force the app to close?
    2. Try to restart your iPad?
    3. Try to do a soft reset?

    You can try this in order, if an app becomes funky.

    Force the app to quit by pushing the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. By long pressing the app in question, it will begin to jiggle-press the red circle with the negative sign on the app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.

    If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.

    Third is to do a soft reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!

    Wow, looks like I'm not only one. Thanks for jumping in with your issues too... I guess.

    So anyway, yes I have the latest OS. My apps don't freeze, they just shut down almost instantly. I did the soft reset last night so I will see if that takes care of things. Will let you know.

    Next!

    If apps are crashing like that, this would appear to be a ram issue...there are steps you can take to alleviate this happening.
    The first step is to have a look in Settings - Safari and clear your History and Cookies, if you would like to see how much data your iPad is saving here hit the Advanced tab first and then press Website Data and Show all Sites. Have a scroll, this is every site you've ever been to and this adds up to a significant amount of ram. So clear that History and Cookies and start afresh.

    Also have a look at how many Location Settings you are running and keep them to a minimum. Just do these steps occasionally and this should stop your iPad crashing like it is. But always do those other 3 steps first when you have a problem and they are to close all yours apps regularly, do a restart occasionally and a reset when the first 2 steps fail to rectify a problem.

    Do these steps and let us know if they have made a difference.

    I agree with leelai because i'd same problems with so many crashed application a months ago. My opinion to solved the problems is frees ipad RAM used by background apps. So, i regularly clear a history, cache and cookies from browser apps. Turning off location and notification for apps that i think did't meet my purpose of using ipad. Now, my ipad works fine.
