Updated Apps Crashing on Start


Marco Arment, creator of Instapaper, is reporting that many apps available via the app store as updates are crashing instantly.

He believes that the app store is somehow corrupting updates that developers supply.

The affected updates were released from July 3 – 5. So, if you are having a problem with updated apps instantly crashing or not launching, you may want to delete them and reinstall with (hopefully) new properly working updates.

His list of apps affected include:
