My iPhone can't open some apps?

Asked by fortris (680points) August 8th, 2008

Right after installing the 2.0.1 software, some apps wouldn’t open, after synching to iTunes some more started working but some are still useless. Whenever I try opening some apps it displays the message “The application “_____” cannot be opened.” I synced it to iTunes and backed up. Anyone have the same problem?

List of apps that don’t work:
Beatmaker
Trism
Super Monkey Ball
Motoracer
Palringo
Shazam
DizzyBeeFree
Any help?

Do they not open completely, as in it doesn’t display the app, or it crashes and won’t completely open the app? It may be that you haven’t downloaded the latest update, or you got interupted while downloading the apps. That happens sometimes, and you have to re-download the app with the updated version. It wouldn’t be fun if you paid for some of those apps, try erasing them and then downloading them again.

Is your iPhone jailbroken and/or unlocked?

@king 3rd It displays the message in a pop-up “The application “Insert here” cannot be opened” and stays on the home screen, yes it has 2.0.1 software, I will try erasing/re-downloading them, and they total $45.

@porksoda No.

You might need to rest your phone, erasing and re-downloading them would be free because now they are keeping records and you will be able to download them again for free.

I’m testing the delete/install method now on DizzyBeeFree.

It works, but I’m not looking foward to Beatmaker ($20 and 108 MB)

hope your not paying for them again! Contact iTunes customer services and ask to re-download them. In my experience they have been very helpfull
