Click on installed Apps -- rather than booting app, "reinstall" only option every time.

I have installed (and reinstalled) a couple of the applications. However, every time I go to click on one of them, the only option I get is to reinstall it. I was able to launch each of the applications once or twice initially, but have never been able to launch any of them again. For example, Facebook. I was able to use it twice. Now, every time I click on it, I only get the "reinstall" option. I've reinstalled it and a couple of other apps a few times apiece. The phone reboots. I click on the app . . . voila! The only option remains to reinstall.

 

Has any one else experienced this and found a solution? I looked through previous posts and didn't find any thread on this topic.

Are you clicking on them in Application Center?  That INSTALLS them.  If you want to OPEN them, go to the Applications folder - they should be there if you've installed them.  HTH!
