Usually, when an app freezes and becomes unresponsive, it will crash by itself, and not cause any other problem; depending on the type of app you were using, and on its type of functionality, a crash could mean that you lost some of your data for that app since it was last saved.

In some cases, however rare, you may find yourself with a frozen application that won't go back to its normal state, and stay on screen, preventing you from using it or the rest of your iPad.

If the app freezes and stays on screen, the easiest way to restart the app in question is:

1. Click on the "Home" button. The majority of the time, this will "force quit" the app, and show your Home screen.

2. Tap on the app icon, and it will restart, possibly not having saved all your data since last time you used it.

If your iPad is frozen or unresposnsive and will not power off, you may need to perform a soft reboot. 

To perform a soft reboot:  

1.  Press the Home button and Sleep/Wake button at the same time and hold for 5 seconds.

2.  Slide the power slider to off.

3.  Wait a few seconds.  Power iPad back on.
