I have The New iPad 64gb wifi and 4g.

I downloaded "Where's My Water?" App by Disney and whenever I use it, it drains my battery from 100% to 5% in less than two hours, it also makes my iPad extremely hot, I am worried it might be damaging my iPads battery life and other components, should I be worried? is there a fix for this problem?

Guy talking to his doctor says:

"Doc, it really hurts my arm when I do this"
Doctor: "Well then, don't do that!"

Sorry, couldn't resist! If at all possible, leave comments on the App store about this in a review, and try to get in touch with the author of said app. If many people or even just a few are reporting the same problem, the only thing to do is wait for the developer to fix the issue, or have iTunes refund the money.

Do you have 4G turned on during the time you're using the program? I also have a 4G third generation iPad and have noticed that leaving 4G on will drain the battery very quickly. Leave 4G off unless you need to use it.

Also the advice from doug is good. Leave negative feedback in the App store for others to see.

FWIW I run Where's My Water on my iPad2 without issue (one of my favorite APPs).

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
