    All of the sudden all of the applications I downloaded from the app store are crashing. None of them will work. I tried restoring the iPhone, but it didn't help. This is really bizarre. Has it happened to anyone else?

    All the apps/games I downloaded (AIM, facebook, tap tap revenge, etc) are also crashing. Basically, when I open any of the apps from the home screen, it closes them immediately. It was not always this way, the apps used to work fine. Tried restarting and still the same problem.

    My girlfriend also has an iphone and the same exact problem happened to her, around the same time. Not sure if this matters, but we are both connected to the same WiFi connection at our house, and we both have a white iphone 16gb version.

    This sucks! Please help!!!

    I noticed this thread is a few weeks old and I am searching for help in fixing this very problem. Have any of you found a solution to this problem? Thanks.

    Have you deleted ALL apps on the iPhone then sync'd with your iTunes account?

    You don't have to delete anything. All you have to do is this:

    In itunes you click in Store and then select Authorize Computer. put in your apple store/itunes login and password. Begin syncing your iphone for either everything or just the Apps. After it finishes it should work. This worked for me.

    Didn't work for me. I've also tried deleting all apps and syncing them again from iTunes multiple times. I don't have any idea what the problem is.

    My guess is corrupt installs create this error. I had one fail, and it kept trying to reinstall and asked for the password over and over. The only way I fixed it was doing a restore. I also don't touch my iPhone while I'm installing an app now. I think that can jack it up. I went into settings to turn off my GPS while installing an app and the settings got locked up and it rebooted while installing. I think that started my problems and then everything was fine until I went to install some updates the next day. Same password messages kept coming up and the updates wouldn't install. Once they finally did all the apps crapped out until I restored. Rebooting didn't fix, nor did the reauthorizing trick. Hmmm...
