Dear Diva: My iPad Apps are acting strange

Dear Diva,

I have a question regarding my iPad. Something has changed on it and I cannot figure out what I have done. When I try and save a picture sent to me on Facebook, I had been able to go to the left bottom corner of the picture and hold and Save Picture would come up. I would then hit it, and the picture was saved in my photo gallery. Can’t do that anymore.

Also, I had the Yahoo app on my screen and now when I open it, it comes on, opens up and immediately goes away. What have I done to cause these happenings? Any ideas?

Thanks Diva!

Hi Donna!

It is not you! The Facebook app has probably changed. I know on mine I have to tap the picture to take it to full screen, then if I tap and hold, I get the option to save the picture. On the Yahoo app, I would try deleting it (tap and hold the icon until it wiggles, then press the X in the corner of the Yahoo app). Then go back to the app store and install it again.

If that does not work,

I would try a few other things to make the Facebook and Yahoo app work properly.

  1. Turn off the iPad and then turn it back on. You do this by holding down the power button at the top right of the iPad until you see the prompt to swipe to shut down. Once it is shut down, hold the power button again until you see the Apple.

  2. Make sure all of your apps are closed. To do this, you double tap the home button to see the running apps at the bottom. Tap and Hold one of them until they all wiggle. Then tap the red circle in the corner of each app until they are all closed. Sometimes if you have too many apps open, some of them will start to act strange or not work properly.

This will definately fix your issue Donna. Thanks for contacting us!
