    Hi all. I have been a Mac person since retiring about 12yrs ago and had imacs(2), MacBook, iPhones (3) and New iPad so can operate them reasonably well but have come unstuck on music app in ipad.

    The app has grabbed all my music from my MacBook but only deals with it as a music player. The tabs at the bottom are unresponsive so for example I cannot make new playlists. When I tap play list the screen does not change. The "new"
    Button etc does not appear.

    Does anybody out there have an answer? Thanks.

    If you have not done so, try these usual fixes and see if they help.


    ----------------------------
    The usual fixes:

    When you have problems with an app it's a good idea to clear it from RAM.

    Close/Clear the app: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app. This will remove it from RAM and insure a clean start the next time you launch the app.

    If that does not work try a restart,

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    Reset All Settings: Another, somewhat more drastic thing you can do is Reset All Settings. You'll find this under Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. It won't erase any of your content, apps, or accounts; but you will have to go through most of your other settings and re-tweak them back to your liking.
