I'm trying to open my Notes app on my iphone and every time it keeps closing.  As I am unable to uninstall this app how can I reinstall it?  No matter what I try it doesn't work, is there a bug?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.3, Notes

    Try resetting the iPhone -- press and hold the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons until you see the Apple logo, then release and let the phone re-boot.

    An app instantly closing is a sign that it is crashing.


    Since resetting didn't solve the issue, you should restore the iPhone.  Plug it in to iTunes, let it sync, then choose "Restore" from the iPhone's summary tab in iTunes.


    You may have suspicious apps on your iPhone (Notes is not one of them as it was supplied by Apple).  Be cautious about which apps you keep on your iPhone.
