“Black” ipad apps – “Doing the Dance”

If you have an app that STAYS black [which means the iPad has made room for it, but has NOT downloaded and installed it], then MDS Tech might ask you to “do the dance”. Here are the steps:

  1. Double-click the home button. Swipe up on ALL the apps you have running.
  2. Hold down the power button on the top until the “Swipe to turn off” slider appears onscreen.
  3. Swipe the slider to turn it off.
  4. WAIT TEN INTERMINABLE MINUTES. While you are waiting, work on your homework…or ask someone what “interminable” means.
  5. Start your iPad up.
  6. Go to the black app.
  7. If it has the name of the app, click it. That should change to the word “Waiting”.
  8. Wait.
  9. Wait some more.
  10. Wait even longer.

Let MDS Tech know when the app installs.

You can also do this at home, as long as your iPad on is on wireless network.
