    There is a simple solution to this and once I faced, and finally overcame. Reboot the iPAD. This is the hard reboot, now the poweroff button to conserve battery.

    It seems for whatever reason, about once every 6 or 8 weeks, the iPAD has a glitch somewhere with certain internet connections and needs a hard reboot to recover. I have once had to have an individual hard reboot when FaceTime would not work, another, when I couldn't connect to our "guest" WIFI connection at work, and a third time when APPS would not update.

    I would just delete the apps in question and re-install them. Reboot after deleting before re-installing.

    I had the same problem. The solution is: 1. Back up to the Cloud (plugged in and on WiFi). 2. Delete the offending app. 3. Go to apple store - Purchased - see list of what you have previously purchased - and re-download the app. As you have already paid for it there is no charge. 3. Despite the warning that deleting will delete all data, the data in fact returns automatically (from the cloud?).
