    When I click on my apps, the screen goes to the app for a moment and then goes to home. I fixed it by deleting and downloading the app again. But after a few days it just came back in a few days. Is there any permanant way to fix this, or at least a way that doesn't involve Wi-Fi?

    I know this is an old topic, but the problem has come up again, and it doesn't work. I've tried many methods. Any ideas?

    Well I don't really want to try that until I have to. It's my last resort, since I have ALOT of stuff on here, and only two of my apps (Fieldrunners and Touchgrind) don't work.

    Well I was forced to delete the apps that didn't work and reinstall them again. But I lost all my awesome fieldrunner scores xD I hope Apple fixes this in the next update since there is no easy fix.

    I think there is a reason for this happening. For me, all the apps that suddenly don't work are the ones that I recently (like 2 hours ago) played and then exited out really quickly without playing the game for more than like 10 minutes. It might be a reason. What do you think?

    I came up with another theory. All the apps that don't work belong to my friend's account. Maybe it has something to do with switching accounts and stuff? So when I delete one of my friends apps and reinstall it, everything works again. I think I may have found the real solution

    It happened to me, well a little differently, as in as soon as i opened an app it closed while it was loading. I downloaded a new app, ran it, then the old ones all worked fine. I guess you've already tried to sync it but try that first if you've not.

    Good luck
