I'm not sure how to reproduce this bug. It happens with certain apps and not all. The issue is when I go to click on an app like iCafe forums, the app doesn't open. It also happened with the Storm app. I thought that since the app is running in the background, it won't open, but I tested this theory with the Slack app and it opened right away. I haven't seen this issue before. The workaround is to switch to the app in the background and open it. Has anyone else encountered something like this?

Have you tried a hard reset?

No, but I'm going to do that now... I always hold off on a hard reset until I've tried all other solutions. Even though I know that a hard reset fixes a majority of problems with iOS.

I did a hard reset on the phone and everything is good. I've also updated iOS to 8.4.
