    In the last week, every time I launch Photobucket, it stays on the blue screen and then it takes me back to home page. I then launch again a second time, and usually this allows me to get into Photobucket. Today, I tried getting into the app--once, twice, and trice to no avail. I go to the app store and look up Photobucket. I go into the app description and see that Photobucket crashes a lot according to many reviews. I try to add my review. The app store tells me that I can't review the app because I don't own it!

    The app store shows it is installed (grayed-out). What should I do? Delete the app and reinstall? Synch?

    I already tried ipl'ing (rebooting) the iPad but this didn't work.

    Tried Both Ideas

    Thank you, BrennB. Neither suggestion worked. I did the photobucket running and rebooted the iPad. Then I deleted it, went to AppStore and tried to reinstall but can't because it still shows as installed.

    I have reported it as a problem with the app developer.

    Matt - could you please send a ticket to Photobucket at //photobucket.com/contact, provide your Photobucket account username and state again the problem you are having with the connection fron the iPad to Photobucket? Photobucket will try to troubleshoot the problem for you.

    Thank you for Advising Me About Sending The Note

    Much appreciated for all the responses, I did get back into the appstore and sent a problem report. That was the last resort option for me. I described fully what happened, what has happened, and everything I've done since the last suggestion from BrennB to delete the app.

    I know that this will be fixed. I'm getting back late tonight to see if I got any responses or any futher developments.

    Did you try reboot after deleting the app to see if the option to install came back? Do you have a recent backup that you can restore too without losing too much new data?

    Hi Brennb

    OMG, I am thinking like YOU! Rebooting is also a very good suggestion--which I did after I deleted the app. Usually that works, not this time. I always do a backup on Saturday night, so Photobucket, worked on Saturday. It stopped working on Sunday. Did a restore from Saturdays backup. That didn't help.

    What is so irritating is seeing the app on my home page and it won't do anything! It is almost like the app is taunting me...come on Matt figure me out! Why can't you get me to work?

    So BrennB, thank you for hanging in there with me! I'm glad there is someone who does troubleshooting like I do. Uncanny!

    Ok so, the next thing since you do have a backup....

    Save your backup file to your desktop or someplace in case it gets removed from iTunes accidentally...

    Now, do dfu mode and set up iPad as new restore iOS...then load backup.
