    they both open with a blank page, I Have tried to remove both apps, but they will not delete, they just lock up the Ipad and I have to wait for it to shut down. I am not having the same problems on my IPhone 4 both apps are functioning correctly.
    This has only started since I upgraded to IOS 5.1

    Hi budgie-welcome to the forum!

    Have you tried to do the following?

    Do the first 2 steps first. Save step 3 as a last resort.

    1. Force the app to close?
    2. Try to restart your iPad?
    3. Try to do a soft reset?

    You can try this in order, if an app becomes funky.

    Force the app to quit by pushing the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. By long pressing the app in question, it will begin to jiggle-press the red circle with the negative sign on the app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.

    If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.

    Third is to do a soft reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!

    Thank you skimonkey, unfortunately none of these worked, however, I have now resolved the problem with doing a "reset all Settings"

    Very good to hear, yes, sometimes the need to do a "reset all settings" is a necessary one. A bit scary-because of the messages of deletion, etc, but all is good!
