    I got an app myfitnesspal and it was working fine on my jailbroken iPhone 4 for verizon. now it doesn't open when I click it. I tried re-installing it from iTunes, even did a restart after. Any ideas on how I can get this app working again? I wanna get this app working again because it's faster then using their website to enter all my stuff in.

    Yes, numerous times. I've reported the problem but haven't heard anything from the developer.

    Would a total restore fix it? I'm not really wanting to do one but if it will fix the app I may.

    It might fix it. There's no way to tell before doing it, as so many things can cause apps to not work or to stop working. Especially when you are jailbroken.

    Did you rejailbreak?

    Did you restore from backup or set up as new?

    I restored as new and then jail broke again, out of habit. I don't use many jail broken apps so maybe I just need to do the restore again an not jailbreak.. Are you thinking the jail break is causing the issue?

    It could very well be. Try a clean restore again and see if all the apps work first, then do the jailbreak.

    I was just about to suggest... you're too fast for me! :p

    I just did the fresh restore and am attempting to download now. I'll start with that one fist, then the original issue app. I can live without the jailbreak if i need to,I really only used quicked reply.

    Weird, both apps are up and running fine without the jailbreak.

    And if you now apply the jailbreak, do they stop working again? Make sure to take it one step at a time; check that both apps still work after you jailbreak, and then again after you install quick reply

    You'd risk having to clean restore again if it breaks. But if it does break, you'll know the cause.

    I'm a little paranoid to jailbreak again an just have the same issue.
