What apps? It seems to me that the apps are crashing. If you post which apps you're having problems with, someone might be able to tell you if they are having crashing problems as well.

Hold down the home button and the sleep button and let your phone reset...That is what usually works for me.

Someone mentioned in another thread that by downloading and syncing a new App (a free one) the other Apps started to work. Might want to give it a try.

If that doesn't help try the Reset and then try restoring and resyncing your information.

Hold down the Sleep and Home buttons simultaneously for about 10 seconds. The phone should completely restart (without the need to slide to power off) and that is the reset to which we were referring.

Try what Kevio said to try..it should fix your problem. It's not resetting it per se, because it doesn't reset all of your data and such it just takes care of glitches and common bugs. See what happens after you hold the sleep/wake and home button and wait for the silver Apple logo to appear and if things are still not working try and re-downloading them//re-syncing your entire phone and make sure your software is up to date.

Are you downloading apps from your iPhone or iTunes?
