I have come to my wits end with this. I have been trying to sort out this stupid itouch, i have updated it to 3.1.2 and done about 50 restores now. Ive deleted all the apps off the itouch put them back on via itunes then put them on via app store.
Everything else works fine but not downloaded apps.
Anyone have any ideas other than do a restore?
Does it matter what generation it is or if its registered to a computer?

    Have you cycled the power on your touch after installing an app?

    this can be done by holding the power button and then sliding the red slider at the top across... Then wait a few seconds, hold the power back in until you see the apple logo.

    It sounds like the touch's internal memory for system usage is overflowing and a power cycle could help you.

    Yea i tried that a few times at the start before restoring etc and afterward aswell, nout changed

    Now are you putting apps in by the store in the Touch?

    If so have you tried this process with your PC? Someone else here earlier was having issues with Monkey Island and the only way they got it to work is to have the PC install it onto thier touch.

    So erase it out of iTunes' app section... Go to the store, search and download it again and try to install it...

    See if that helps.

    I'm having the same problem, I get into an app and the title screen comes up then it instantly gets out of it again.

    Ive put them on via itunes on mac...didnt work
    Put them on via the app store on itouch...didnt work

    Safari,mail etc all grand but downloaded ones as above mentioned by boves open for a second then close.

    Have you paid for any apps?
    I havent risked buying as they havent worked for me yet.

    I've also gone thru all the recommended Apple steps. After I reinstall my apps (both free and bought) they work for awhile. Then one or two stop opening and the next day none will open.

    Time to call tech support I guess.

    I have the same issues. I restored my ipod touch multiple times, I called apple customer service and they were no help at all. All they told me to do is delete my apps on itones and redownload them and that did nothing. Has anyone figured this issue out yet?

    All of my apps were working fine. Then I added Skiball from the app store.
    Now all of my purchased applications immediately quit after choosing them.
    I have tried:
    Unselecting the apps in itunes and syncing.
    Restarting the ipod touch
    Resetting the ipod touch from the General menu.
    Then another reset with the power and home buttons pressed.
    Retyping my wifi password
    Resyncing just one app.
    (no luck)

    Then I tried the whole procedure again adding a full Restore.
    Then another reset. Again, retyping my wifi password (Grrrrrr)
    That process took nearly 45 minutes
    Then I checked just one purchased app again and synced..


    This is a real problem.
    That $.99 Skiball app blew away my astronomy programs and my HP-41c Emulator.

    Apple....What is going on???
    It shouldn't be this difficult.
