First, DOUBLE punch the button at the bottom of your IPhone. Up will pop these icons! See mine are Twitter, FBook, C2C, mail....At this point, swish your finger Right to Left. If you are like me, you will see lots of icons roll by! Guess what? Like your computer at home, you have desktop ICONS....Well, on an IPhone, if you open an app just once...it STAYS open! This bogs down the speed of your IPhone to load things like your mail, Fbook, etc. SO, now go to the Next step below!
Put your finger on one of those open apps until they start wiggling....Up pops little red circles with minus signs. Touch the minus signs of ALL the apps you want to close. (I clicked them All, but that just me...) If some of them don't come back up and work properly, all you need to do is, Delete the old Icon then... go to the APP Store and download it again. Easy!
If you clicked them All, this is what your phone should look like (above photo). NOW...just punch the bottom button just Once! WaaaaLaaaaa.....You SHOULD do this at least once a week to keep things running smoothly! OH! And make SURE you get to ITunes and load the latest firmware and software! The "fix" is in the newest UpDate download!
SO....There you have it. Technology is a wonderful thing IF you can get the makers to pony-up ALL the info that goes with it...I hope this was helpful OR will be in the future for all you IPhone AND IPAD owners! Yes, the same applies to you IPAD OWNERS as well...And ITouch Owners!!! SO, get busy and clean things up Now, so hopefully YOU won't be in a panic if things freeze up on you!
I'm SORRY to my Blogger Buddies who don't own an Apple product...I know this was boring!
Have a great day!
