Y games keep shutting down at random times when i am playing them. What does this mean? For example sims free play, that used to close down on me a lot but I deleted a few games a while back and it was okay but it is happening again and I'd say I have just 1 or 2 more new games... What should I do? Help!! :) x

Some apps just play up from time to time and closing them completely and then relaunching them will normally fix this. Also, they can do this if there isn't sufficient ram to play the game, so in this instance it is best to close other apps you have open to free up more ram, especially when using an ipad1. A 1 only has 256mb of ram compared with the ipad2 with 512mb. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. Let us know how you go.
