    esterday I made updates two of my favorite apps, the Washington Post and The Weather Channel. neither one works now. page loads and then shuts down. notified via their forum. Coincidence that there is something uniquely wrong with both of these updates or is there a larger problem here? I use these apps everday. Thanks for any insight.

    Hello tina4201. I sometimes have similar problems when I update content rich apps like these two that you mentioned. Here is what I do:
    1. After the update, I double press home and get the shelf where recently used apps reside. I press an app until it wiggles and press each app until you clear the shelf.
    2. Then I press home until the power off slider appears, I slide to off, wait a couple seconds.
    3. I press the home button again until the Apple login appears and power back.

    This action should clear your iPad memory. Whenever you have this kind of problem, this will help reset your iPad.

    The latest update of the Weather channel app was on the 9th of July. I updated on the same day and didn't experience any problems. Did you experience any difficulty with the download of the update?

    The only thing I can think of here is that there is not sufficient ram available to run these apps. Have you ever cleared your history and cookies in Safari? Go to Settings - Safari and Clear History and cookies and then see if this makes a difference and let us know.

    History cleared. TWC app comes up now, but slow. WaPo still doesn't but I think you are right, this is a ram issue. Going to do some housecleaning and see if that works. Thanks for the tip!
