Several of our applications keep closing right after they get initiated.  Does anybody know why this happens and how to fix it?

    This happens to me once in a while. Maybe you have a wrong version that's not fully compabilbe with the ios.  Check with the software issuer.

    If it's happening to a number of apps then try a reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 seconds, after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot. If it was just one or two downloaded apps I would have suggested uninstalling and re-installing, but you can't do that with the App Store app.


    Have you got the latest iOS version (4.3.3) on your iPad ? If not then it may be worth updating that.

    More then likely you dont have any room on your device. You have to check your memory. If it says 0 bytes you may have to delete a couple songs that you dont really want or a lot of unnecessary photos/videos to free up your phone.

    Go to: Settings>General>Usage. Then look to see how many bytes of free memory there is. If it says 0 then walla!! Time to delete.

    The tricky part is even if you delete a couple it may not pop up in the free bytes that you have freed up any bytes but just know that as long as you delete some stuff to make room there should be that much room. Deleting apps doesnt really work that well but photos and songs work a lot better. This should work, try it and ket me know how it goes!

    If not then more then likely your going to have to delete that app and download it again or get a new phone.
