    Closing apps but they are still open?

    What do you mean by the 'swiping cycle'? You've double pressed the Home button to open the multi-task bar, then pressed any icon in the multi-task bar until they all start to jiggle, then - one-by-one - touched the upper left hand corner of the app icons in the multi-task bar to close them. Then...

    Making GSM Phone Calls and send/receive SMS on iPad2 3G/WiFi?

    On a non-jailbroken iPad it's not possible to make or receive GSM calls on an iPad. If you jailbreak, then there are some apps that will let you do this. Tim

    Set Google Classic as Default Search Engine in Safari?

    No - unfortunately it's not possible in Safari. There was a blog from one of the Google staffers who said that, for some deep and myseterious technical reason, this can't be done. But, once you've switched to Classic, then all the following pages in the same search will remain on Classic. Maybe...

    iOS 5.0.1 – Anyone else seeing double?

    This is definitely a new one on me. I've not seen or heard of this happening before and I don't recall any Members reporting this. Might be worth rebooting the iPad by switching off and then pressing and holding the Power and Home buttons for about 6-9 seconds until the white Apple logo...

    Help apps keep showing up i didnt download

    It seems as though possibly someone else is using your iPad. But go to 'Settings', 'Restrictions' and there you can set it so that no new apps can be installed. You can easily delete the unwanted apps by pressing and holding any app's icon until they all start to jiggle and then touching the...

    Adobe flash player

    The iPad simply cannot play Flash movies - Apple has publicised this very widely and there are several papers on their website about this. You'll have seen, too, that Adobe have now abandoned their efforts to develop Flash plug-ins for all mobile platforms. There are literally dozens of threads...

    Problem with downloading game in iPad 2

    Check that you don't have Restrictions set in the iPad's 'Settings' app. The game has an age restriction and, if you've got age restrictions enabled, the icon of the app doesn't even appear on the iPad's Home screen. Take the restriction off and the icon will re-appear. Tim

    Newsstand Notification Persists!

    Try quitting the app completely in the multi-task bar. Go to the Home screen. Double click the Home button to open the multi-task bar. Press and hold any icon until they all start to jiggle. Touch the upper left hand corner of the Newstand icon to completely quit it. Press the Home button again...

    Can't upload my CV on a website

    As Gabriel suggests, Safari cannot do this. But the third-party app browser, iCab, can. But you need to transfer your CV to the private iCab filespace because, in the iPad's operating system, iOS, each app's filespace is private and cannot be accessed by another app. This filewalling (Apple call...

    Soundless

    Two possibilities... (1) you have accidentally activated the mute function. The Mute is controlled by either the hard switch next to the volume control or the soft switch at the far left of the multi-task bar (double press the Home button and flick the screen right). (2) the volume is...

    IPad is stuck in portrait view.

    There is a second control that can lock the screen. Double press the Home button to open the multi-task bar. Now 'flick' the screen to the right. The control at the far left of the multi-task bar can also lock screen rotation - though it can be set to operate the Mute function. See if that...
