    Unsync all of the App Store apps via iTunes and sync them back on one at a time.

    could also be a memory issue... try Jarlath's suggestion first and then monitor your memory if the apps are still crashing, especially if you are using high load graphics games from the Appstore... SBSettings shows free memory and you can 1) kill background apps by holding the home button for 5 secs and 2) restart your device (either power off and power on or hard reset by holding home and power simultaneously until you see the Apple logo). Hote that certain apps are memory hogs - Intelliscreen is a killer and Winterboard uses up memory and cpu resources as may other widgets and system hacks.
