    Which app are crashing exactly? What kind of phone do you have? Is there still space left on you phone?

    Have you tried a soft reset?
    If that doesn't help, how about reinstalling the offending apps?

    Hold the volume down and power buttons at the same time until the phone vibrates (reboots)

    Is a soft rest like a factory reset?

    No, that would be a hard reset.
    A soft reset is more akin to restarting a computer.
    No data will be lost.

    For me the only solution was reinstalling the apps but I still haven't been able to grasp the cause. Try reinstalling, works like a charm.

    Most apps would crash and even the Settings wouldn't open on my L820 if I didn't have any space left. By any space left I mean UNDER 200 MB.

    You being a 520 user, some apps sometimes don't start (not referring to crashing) simply because the app needs to be updated or the phone isn't fast enough to redistribute available resources.

    If the soft reset didn't work, if reinstalling apps didn't help either, a hard reset (aka factory reset) may be in order.
