    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!

    Sorry about that.....I am not really sure about how to reply appropriately, 'reply to thread' is not visible to me. My apologies.
