    I wonder if you can help me? I was in the process of downloading pages & its spreadsheet equivalent (numbers?) I was doing both at the same time and they seemed to have frozen. When I look in the App Store, I can see the app and it still says ‘installing’ but nothing is moving and it has been like that for almost an hour. How do I get it to finish installing this app? I have tried the trick of shutting the Ipad until I get the slide bar and then pressing on the home button but it isn’t helping. Any other suggestions?
    Your help would be greatly appreciated
