I searched and found answers from 3 years ago..not sure they're still relevant..When I try to open my apps, they flash open for about 1 second and then close...can't get anything to open.  This is an iPhone 4.  HELP!!

iPhone 4, Windows 7

    Reboot.

     

    Hold BOTH the HOME and LOCK buttons.

    IGNORE the slide to turn off when it appears and KEEP holding.

    Wait for screen to turn off then come back on to Apple Logo.

    Then you can let go.

    If resetting the iPhone didn't work, try deleting a purchased app from the phone and re-downloading it from the App Store. I have seen this solve the problem before.

     

    Hope this helps!

    This happened to me after only receiving the brand new $400 iTouch ONE week ago. (And I only have 6 apps.) Am I going to have to reset EVERY single week? If so, then this is a problem with product quality, and I've been shammed. Any other solutions that don't require a weekly reset?

    It happens quite commonly to me now, go on the app store and download any random free app and  when it is downloaded all your apps sould work again

    download any random/free app, or update any of your apps!
