    Several members have found they need to power recycle the iPad before things 'get back to normal'. So try switching it off completely - i.e. not just to Sleep - power on and see if it's OK then.

    I'm sorry to hear that; when you say they don't work, do you mean they won't load or - when they're loaded they don't function properly? I guess you could be a bit more drastic and try a reboot, rather than a power recycle...

    they won't load...they will flash onto the screen for a split second and then crash. just going to wait 24 hours and see if anybody else has any bright ideas before my next move.

    I've not seen this problem mentioned here before but, yes, wait and see. Though a reboot can't do any harm....:(

    I have just installed the 4.3.2 version and got the same problem. None of the applications is working. Shall I use the restore option? Thanks, Vanine

    Maybe remove the apps, do a hard reset and then do a reinstall on the apps?

    This worked for me when my air video app just crashed on me over and over again.

    I have exactly the same issue. All apps that have been downloaded from the store will not work. Ones that were part of the original build such as videos or Safari do.

    The app pops up for a brief second and then disappears. It is very frustrating.

    I've hard re-set. Closed down all apps. re-opened. Nothing works. I have dozens of the things and don't think re-installing them all is an option.

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Just to be clear when you say a 'hard reset' - do you mean a reboot? Hold the Power and Home keys down together for about 15 seconds or so until the white Apple logo appears and then wait for the iPad to reboot?

    With your iPad connected to your pc via the USB cable, log on to to the iTune Store (user name and password required) and from the Store menu select "Authorize This Computer".

    I would try uninstalling and then reinstalling the offending apps (one at a time of course) to see if that helps.

    FWIW, I didn't have any issues with 4.3.2.

    Thanks for the help

    Thanks for the help. Rebooting didn't sort it but removing iTunes information then using the "reset all settings" in the General tab and then re-configuring did.

    I think it may have been caused by using the iTunes on my wife's login profile to do the update so somewhere it mucked all the setting about and that is why only bought apps did not work.

    having same issues with my iPhone apps. I ended up deleteing apps and downloading them on iTunes and then onto my phone. Still don't always work on some, others it seemed to help.

    Update and email contacts

    I have an issue that apparently arose from the update too. When I open email and wish to send an email, prior to this update I could click on the To field, the keyboard would appear below, I would type in the first letter of the intended address and my contacts with that letter would appear. Now, all I get is the keyboard below but no contacts when I enter the first letter of the address with the keyboard. I can enter using the X on the right hand top of the page to access my addresses but I miss the old way of entering my contacts' first letter with the keyboard. I have tried several reboots to no avail. My contacts are correct so I don't know where to go from here since the email app is native and there is no way to download it from the apps store. As an afterthought, I downloaded AltraMail (not sure if this is the correct title) and the contacts do appear when I go through the original steps as described above. Any suggestions?

    Easy fix - has to do with iTunes account authentication.
    1. On your iPad, go to the App Store
    2. Choose an application that is free and that you have never downloaded before.
    3. Download it and enter account info when prompted
    4. All previously purchased apps will now work correctly
