I can't update my apps - now they don't work at all

I don't really use apps on my blackberry but there are two that I use everyday, these are twitter and whatsapp . I don't know if they need updating but they have just stopped working all together, this has happened before but updating them seems to fix it. Now I can't get on to the app world to do this because is says that it needs wifi but I don't have this. Is there any way that I can get onto the app world just using the mobile Internet because this seems like such a silly idea for the people that don't have wifi!

Re: I can't update my apps - now they don't work at all

BlackBerry World does not require a WiFi connection to work.

At Options > Device > Application Management, what version of AppWorld do you have installed?

You can delete it there.

Then, Do a simple reboot on the BlackBerry in this manner: With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot.
Using your BlackBerry browser, go to www.blackberry.com/appworld and download/install again.
