    Your apps are fine. Just go into Settings > General > Restrictions and turn it on. Then exit out of the settings app and follow the same path and turn it off. They should be back. Also try resetting the homescreen layout, it settings > general > reset > reset homescreen layout.

    How many apps do you have? Can you open them, if you search for them in spotlight?
