    For the past few days I've had problems with some apps (Huffington Post, Bank of America). These apps try to open but close out. I've tried uninstall/reinstall and even reset back to factory defaults but having the same problem. I've also noticed that on Facebook app when I scroll down, at some point, the app closes.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Any thoughts appreciated.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    Are you using an SD card? It may be bad.

    Also, try a Cache Partition wipe.

    Also, consider Safe Mode, which will test whether a third-party app is causing problems.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? If it's the M8, it may be due to the latest Android System WebView update--it's been pretty well-documented so far. Uninstall that update.

    I tried without the sd card.
    I've cleared data and cache before and after setting device to factory defaults.
    In safe mode the 3rd party apps don't appear so I don't see how this is doable.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    That's an HTC One M8. As I mentioned in my previous post, it might be due to the latest Android System WebView update. Go to Settings>App Manager>All, select Android System WebView, and Uninstall Updates.

    You are right. That is the problem. After doing another factory reset and testing, after the webview update occurred the issue began again. Thanks for your help.

    Glad it helped. I had to uninstall the updates from my wife's M8 as well. Waiting for the next update to show up on my Nexus 5 (where it works fine), so that I'll know to try again with the M8 (which assumes that the next update is meant to correct this issue).
