    Welcome to Android Central.

    I would first suggest clearing cache of the apps. You can do this through system settings > applications. Or, you can access recovery and clear cache for everything: power off then hold volume down+home+power on. Use volume down to highlight clear cache (not reset) and power to accept. Reboot and see if that helps.

    Worst case scenario is a factory reset...but backup your data and sync accounts before hand. Take a look at this blog post for more useful tips: Android 5.0 Lollipop bugs got you down? Here's how you (might be able to) fix them | Android Central

    ok first of all we need to use volume up btn to acces recovery mode, where are options u mentioned. Volume btn down runs menu when u can download some custom os - odin or sth (i dont exactly know what is it). But my question is, i see samsung logo and blue text recovery mode, but it is quickly closing and i cant run recovery mode. Someone knowes why ? Maybe because of 10% battery?

    I had similar problems with few apps after update to lollipop.
    For me the solution was to reinstall those apps.

    I hadn't any problem with pre installed apps.
