Result:why wont my apps stay open on my ipad

I just discovered that when I am done using an app and return to the home screen and select another app, the first app remains active in the background. Apparently I can see all the open apps by double clicking the home screen button. Whats the deal with this? There are no close options on any apps...|apps-stay-open-background-ipad

Hi,  I recently bought a new ipad 64GB. It has worked perfectly until yesterday when I tried to open a PDF email attachment. The attachment sort of twitches and then does nothing. This happens everytime I try to open it.  I have tried: restart, hard reset, tap and hold, swapping from all mail to the single inbox and back again. I have tried pretty much everything to get it to work.  Please help.  Thanks in advance, Theblokedownstairs. ...|ipad-open-pdf-attachment.

I have noticed the maximum no of apps that appear in 'open in' is 10 and more frustratingly, new apps which sharing functions replace my favourite old apps (especially good reader app) in the 'open In'. Is it possible to determine which apps appear in the 'open In'?, increase the no? Or at least force my favourite apps to appear there or prevent them from being displaced? The only way I cope now is to delete the least favoured apps with sharing functions in order to allow my favourite apps to appear?...|control-apps-show-open-popovers-favourite-apps-longer-popover

Tried to update some apps several days ago, and they no longer show in the update part of the app store, but they still have the bar on the bottom showing they need to download. When I click they say 'waiting...' then prompts that it is unable to download and gives me the option of retrying. I have been able to both download and update other apps since, but these apps will not update. I am also unable to use them. I have restarted my ipad. What else should I do?...|apps-update
