Ipod touch 3.1.1 free app open and close

I upgraded ipod touch to the newest 3.1.1 and downloaded some free app for test such as skype, weather, yahoo financa,etc.
But somehow when I touched to open apps, they will close very quickly, I reboot ipod a few times,also removed and re-installed, still not working, open and close immdiately.
also I found my Notes is messed up, can not delete, add any new notes. When adding a new note, touch 'Done' then back to home.
any help will be highly appreciated, otherwise I have to downgrade and jailbreak it..:(
Thanks!

hehe, I was teasing...
I found a web page about the same problem we have: http://ipodtouchtricks.net/ipod-touch-tutorials/application-opens-and-closes-qui ckly-problem-on-ipod-touch/
"First: You must try is a reboot or restarting your iPod Touch( iPod Touch 2G jailbreakers have to follow the boot process again). Restarting your iPod refreshes the memory of iPod Touch and chances are that your applications will be running fine after a restart. It is also recommended that you should restart your iPod Touch once in a week.
Second: The app doesn’t meant for your iPod Touch
Third : The app isn’t available in your country and you might be using .ipa files for installation, if you have this problem with .ipa files then try another version or latest version of the app and it might work.
Fourth: Use applications that frees memory, i recommend a restart though.
Most of the time, a simple restart solves the closing app problem.
Let me know your valuable thoughts, have you ever faced this problem
dont know if those helps...

  • Apps open and close

    hello
    i have a iphone 4. My apps open and close immediatly. I can't use them.
    What can I do ?
    thanks for your help
    Chris

    Hey Chris,
    It just happened to me. If all the brought apps are closing immediately (and excluding the built in ones) then try either:
    1. Restart your phone.
    2. Hold the home button for the task bar and hold the app for a few seconds until they jiggle and a red cicle with a line in it shows up. Touch each one (this is just deleting them and "refreshing them", you aren't really deleting the app).
    3. Go to the App store and buy a free app, any, and install it. Try opening one of your apps now. This worked for me. If it works, you can go ahead and delete the free app.
    4. If all fails...restore your phone.
    Good luck!

  • My ipad 4 dropped and now apps open and close on their own

    My ipad 4 dropped off my lap.  The glass is intact but now all the apps open and close randomly on their own.  I tried to reboot it and it didnt workd.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

    THANKS for your prompt reply  Bluetooth is off in my laptop and IPhone.. and in fact the reset is the only thing that can make it back to normal. But for a lil while. I wonder if it is the touch, or the home botton... both things are very expensive to replace, so I wouldn't like to spend $$ and continue having the prob.....

  • ALL of my 3rd party apps open and close immediately

    after connecting to itunes after a few months now ALL of my 3rd party apps open and close immidiately when i try to open them

    First try a hard reset.  To do this, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.  If that doesn't help, try downloading a new App free app from the app store to see if that helps.

    Hi Harvester,
    I've been having this issue for a while, and I FINALLY got it to work.  For what it's worth, here's what I did.
    I was trying to send files from my laptop to my desktop and for some reason i saw that my desktop couldn't find my laptop.  I went to the Sharing settings and saw that under my "Computer Name" there was nothing there.  This may have happened due to my upgrade to Mavericks.  Once I placed filled that info in, and restarted my laptop.  Lo and behold, Creative Cloud and Growl started working side by side again
    This may not be your issue, but I thought I'd pass it along.

  • Apps open and close all of the sudden

    Ok, my iphone was working fine until 10 minutes ago. I had no issues with it and all of the sudden, I tried opening up an app and all it will do is just open and close all of the sudden. And it's with ALL apps! I tried doing everything there is to do to solve the issue and nothing. I even followed someone's post about downloading a free app and nothing. I have tried restoring it, doing the sleep/wake and home button till apple logo comes up, and turning it off normally, and even re-syncing to computer and NOTHING! What should I do?

    Download another free App - doesn't matter which one.
    Sync and then hold down the Home and top button until the phone switches of completely.
    Restart the phone and you should be fine - you did nothing wrong but its a sign of a bad sync.
    You're not the first so enjoy !

  • Apps open and close alone...

  • IPad mini acting strange. Apps open and close randomly. Any ideas?

    My iPad mini acts strange. Apps will randomly open and close and I have no control over it. I have reset it to factory and started all over but it is still doing it. Any ideas on what I should do?

    If the unit has NEVER been jailbroke, first try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...  Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  It could take well over an hour!  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow the on-screen directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
    If you're unable to do the Restore, go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.  You WILL lose all of your data (game scores, etc,) but, for the most part, you can redownload apps and music without being charged again.  Also, if you have IOS-7, read this.

  • Software issue iphone 4s:Apps open and close by themselves almost as if someone is pressing the buttons, anyone have this issue?

    Recieved my 3rd iphone  4s due to battery issues and got another dud. While in use, the apps  will open and close on there own, email will get deleted while I'm reading them or archived. while looking through my contacts directory, the phone will select a contact creating an outbound call. This is frustrating. Any one else have this issue?

    Hi Ralph9430,
    I've tried this numerous times and have the same issue. I've even restored the phone to factory settings and removed everything and problem persists.
    Cheers

  • IPod touch 4g won't download apps anymore and facebook won't work

    One day my iPod touch suddenly stopped downloading apps. I thought it wasn't because it hadn't been updated so i updated it but the problem still continues. I have no clue what's gone wrong but it won't update anymore saying, 'error 1004 please try again later.' so i tried again later, and later and still the problem occurs. Also my facebook app hasn't been working well with the newsfeed not appearing and i can't write statuses anymore. it won't show me any new notifications or messages, but i'm guessing thats down to facebook, but I don't know why it's doing it so any helpful answers would be much appreciated? Any help?

  • Windows 8.1 Apps open and close immediately

    We have joined a laptop running Windows 8 to the domain however none of the apps work. They open and then close immediately.
    The error in the event log is:The app microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Microsoft.WindowsLive.Calendar's package family (microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe) has more than one package installed. This is not supported, so the app
    was not activated for the Windows.Launch contract.
    The problem doesn't happen with a local user or before the laptop was on the domain.
    We have tried following with no luck:
    *Permission changes for ALL APLICATION PACKAGES
    * Laptop and user in an OU with no group policies applying
    *Same ISO re-downloaded
    *Registry changes advised by Microsoft
    * Local admin rights to domain user
    Uninstalling and re-installing the apps manually fixed this issue but this isn't the correct way of fixing this as Windows 8 will be rolled out company wide.
    Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks

    Hi,
    How are the APPs installed on the PC before joining into domain? With Microsoft account?
    Besides, have you checked this blog?
    What to do if your Windows 8 Modern App fails to start
    Please follow the steps mentioned to see if any group policy settings(like AppLocker, logon scripts or proxy settings) or the image itself caused this.
