    I have an original iPad. When using opening some attachments in Twitter the iPad often just shuts down. Any suggestions as to why?

    Unfortunately, this is one of the "penalties" for being an early pioneer and getting the first generation iPad. It's going to get left behind...

    For the apps crashing incident, all I can suggest is to fully close all apps (and maybe do a restart or a reset, too) before trying the app again. The original iPad got a relatively tiny amount of RAM and a lot (or most) of today's app really draw on/need RAM.

    And, the iPad can only go to iOS 5.1.1. If a developer chooses to upgrade an app past that iOS version, again, it's unfortunate but there is nothing an iPad1 owner can do. Either keep the old version on the iPad or delete it because it can longer be updated. And yes, this may result in apps that keep crashing.

    I'm sorry you all have troubles with your iPad1s. But, as they are now two full iOS versions behind, I'm afraid it's not going to improve. All you can do is keep restarting apps.

    There is some good news to be had. It seems that Apple has begun allowing legacy devices, that cannot be upgraded to the latest iOS version, to download the latest compatible version of an app. http://9to5mac.com/2013/09/17/ios-a...loads-to-support-older-hardware-and-software/
