Hi, I'm Patrick Coll, and I'm here today to talk about how you stop an app from running on your iPad. So you may have a bunch of apps running and you have noticed that one of them is giving you alerts or it's still running in the background and you want to stop it and you are wondering how to do that, it's not always obvious. The best way to do it is double tap on the home button and we get this list of apps that are currently open. If you want to close one of them, Facebook for example, you just slide up on the page above it and just go like that and then that will close the app, stop it from running. If you want to get it off there for good, stop it running forever you just tap and hold on an app until they start to jiggle and then you see that little X, you hit that X and then that's going to delete it and then it's definitely not going to be running on your iPad. I'm Patrick Coll. I hope this has been helpful. Thank you for watching.
