    I don't think this is quite for me to participate because I am not as computer literate as most! Not thick at all but computer jargon is like another language to me! Sorry!

    I just wanted to know why my fashion story game freezes whenever I am ordering from the catalogue and I have to turn it off and on! Why? My recipe books in RS and BS do too and at an alarming rate....4 times in one order! I do not deal well with frustration so will give up soon but I love them! My GC ID is NICMICKEY78

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    When an app behaves strangely it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, now see if it's working, if not a restart is in order

    Restart - Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating, if not a reset is the next step

    Reset - Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know how you go.
