    OK - let's raise the stakes....a reboot....

    Press and hold at the same time the Home and Power buttons for a long time - could be as long as 20 seconds - until the white Apple logo appears. The iPad will then reboot. It takes a while, so have patience. When it's finished and you're back to the Home screen, try the apps again.

    Good Luck.

    OK - I need to think about this a little more. You've tried all the usual fixes.

    One last thing - try un-installing an app and then re-install it. To delete an app, hold down any icon on the Home screen until they all start to jiggle. Then press the 'X' in the top left hand corner. A message will appear asking you to confirm that you want to delete this app and all of its data. Then go to the App Store and re-install the app and see if the problem persists.

    You don't need to pay to re-install apps, but - in any case - try it with a free app, if you have any, or one you don't care too much about.

    If you don't have any like that, then try installing a new free app - anything - and see if the problem persists.

Each icon will then have a 'X' symbol in its upper left hand corner. Press each 'X' and the corresponding apps will shut down completely. Do this for all the apps. Now touch the Home button and the multi-task bar will close.

    Now you're back to the regular Home screen and you can try and open an app again. You should find that they will work OK this time.

    Correspondingly, I got a '-' instead of 'X'. Is it the same?

    That appears to have done the trick. I re-downloaded one app and it works fine, plus now all the other apps that were screwing up are working also. Thank you very much for your help. It is very much appreciated.

    I had this exact problem and fixed it. It seems to be an iTunes store problem related to "authorization" of an app on a particular machine. I tried all the above with no success, but found that I could download a new app and it worked. Shortly thereafter all the other apps were working again.

    I have been having the same problems, but after trying all the suggestions in this thread, nothing has worked for me

    Should I be resetting my ipad altogether?

    Cheers.
