    I am pretty frustrated so I apologize beforehand if I picked the wrong forum to post my thread.

    I just updated my Ipad 2 to Os version 4.3.3. Now I cannot open a single app that I downloaded. I got Pages, Garageband, Kindle, Nightstand, and Alarmed. I cannot open any of them. What it does is it opens them and in less than half a second it goes back to the original HUD. I don't know what is going on. However, all the original apps seem to be working fine.

    if I cannot find a way to fix it, should I just wait for a new patch or just restore the ipad to its original setting. If i Restored it, a) Will it fix the problem? b) Do I have to pay again for all the apps I downloaded.

    Thanks guys.

    Have you already restarted the iPad? If not, it can be done by pressing the power button for 5 seconds and then slide to power off. That should solve the issue.

    Don't panic!! For a start, you definitely do not have to pay again for any apps - the App Store remembers all the apps that you've purchased and will let you download them again.

    But, before we get on to complicated solutions, let's try this....

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Ok. I did what Tim has said. I initially opened up the multi task bar, closed the apps, reopened them again. Nothing happened, it is the same error.
    I restarted the ipad. Did the exact same thing, once again. Nothing happened.

    Next suggestion. Un-install one of the apps that's causing trouble (try a free one to be safe) and then download and install it again. Does it work OK now?

    (To un-install an app, press and hold any icon until they jiggle, then press the 'X' on the top left-hand corner of the app. You will get a message asking you to confirm if you want to delete it.

    Depending on how many apps you have, it may be easiest, if you sync delete all apps, then connect the iPad to iTunes, go to the Apps tab and reselect all apps you had installed. That will sync all the apps back and might be a quicker way then manually downloading them from the AppStore again.

    Or did the one reinstall also made the other apps run again?

    Edit: Just noticed your previous post. That was an easy fix :)
