    Out of the blue all my apps have stopped working on my 16GB WiFi iPad 1.

    They open for a split second then return to the homescreen.

    Ive rebooted through iTunes and still nothing.
    Any ideas?

    Upgrade to iOS version 4.3.1 and you will have a new operating system. If the system is the cause then your problem will be solved.

    Did you both update to IOS 4.3.1?

    Have you tried to do a restore from a backup?

    Have you installed in new apps in the last day or two?

    Is your iPad jailbroken?

    Just some questions I thought might help narrow things down a bit.

    Thanks both, I'm gonna try the upgrade later on and hopefully this will work! Also, iPad not jail broken - too scared!! :D

    Took mine to the Genius bar at an apple store (surprisingly packed considering apple products are generally failsafe).

    Turns out I may have had a rogue app that crashed when updating it.
    I kept kept it when reformatting and using Restore from Backup

    So, the solution was to reset it and start it as a new device in iTunes.

    Works now, just a shame I lost a few apps, photos and things I hadn't synced
