Just passing on some information that I picked up a few days ago at the local Apple Store Genius Bar. To free up available memory on the iPad by shutting down background apps still running. Double Tap on the Home Button, this will show icons that are running in the background. Hold down one of them until they all start vibrating, then tap on the (-) sign on each one to shut them down. I was unaware of this procedure, so thought I would share it here on the Forum. Hope it helps you all.
