    It sounds like an iTunes Store authentication issue. Reconnect the iPod to the computer, launch iTunes. Deauthorize the computer from under the Store menu, reauthorize, and then sync an application back to the iPod. Report back if you still have an issue.

    How would I relaunch the applications?! I am really not very good with computers and iPods and such. I did just delete all of the applications from my iPod and I just got reinstalled a few of them, and they seem to be working, but right now I dont know if they still are because I am back at work and I dont have the password to use the WiFi, my boss doesn't even know the password. Plus I wouldn't be able to do what you suggested until after I get off work and get back home.

    Adding/removing an application is pretty easy. Hold a finger down on one of the installed applications. After a few seconds they'll start to wiggle, and an X will appear in the upper left corner of the ones you can remove. Tapping the X displays a warning that it'll remove the data stored in the application and you'll have to redownload it or transfer it over from the computer. Tap ok, and poof its gone. Reconnect the iPod to the computer and let it auto-sync to move the application back over.

    So I guess going back to the app store and getting it again isn't the same? I just want to know the BEST way to do this, so that it doesn't happen agian. I'm guessing what I did, chances are this is going to happen again.

    You have to remove an app from the iPod/iPhone before you can re-download it from the App Store.

    Well, if you delete it on your iPhone/iPod, it will be removed from your device's app sync list in iTunes, but you can still add it back without re downloading.
