    Hi,

    Lots of apps keep quitting on me, and my iPad is running pretty slow at the moment. I've tried a soft reset, and want to do a reinstall now to see if that clears it up.

    If I do this, will I lose all my app data? For example, will it remove all my files in Readdle docs, or information in 'Things'?

    Thanks for your advice

    No, as long as you backup to iTunes and sync everything properly.

    before all that...i would try to hard reset...
    if your ipad is almost full, delete anything you dont need...
    and check to see what you have running in the backround.
    a full reinstall of the OS is the last step.
    with that being said..just make sure everything is backed up.
    from my experience..when i have reinstalled..ive lost all my game data and other things..

    Good luck!
