I Took some bad advice from this forum. I was told that Apple would not allow apps in the App Store that, by design, will crash the original iPad. Right! It's not memory! I've got plenty of that. What crashes are apps that are heavy into graphics, like my Popular Science subscription, and even the old reliable Weather Channel app when I put the weather map in motion. My uneducated guess is that these apps need a duel core chip to work properly. What ever the problem, Apple insists on telling us via the App Store, that there is an update we should download. We shouldn't! Either Apple doesn't bother to test these apps on the original iPad or doesn't give a rat's ... Now, I'm talking about an iPad that's less then two years old and still under AppleCare that Apple has orphaned, i.e. no longer supports, and pushes app upgrades that will render the original iPad useless.
