PlayBook Apps won't work....
I have a 16 gig PlayBook running OS 188.8.131.520 and I'm having problems running apps. For one, I haven't been able to sideload since I updated and there's a number of apps in App World that won't work once installed, some of which I've payed for. Not sure what to do from this point.
Just tried to install the CB Forums app so I could keep tabs on this thread, but it won't run either.

Reboot? Did you wipe. 560 before updating to. 840? If so this is a known issue. You can search for a solution its well documented in the forums.I waited...It launched...Im still waiting...

Since I did the 1 mb upgrade on .840, Twitter does not work. I re-booted a couple of times with no luck.
I touch the Twitter icon, the browser opens and goes to Twitter, then the browser closed.
I can get on twitter on my computers with no problem.
I searched the forums and didn't see anything that would help.

When you say sideloaded do you mean Android apps converted to Playbook or native bar files. Not all Android apps will work and some may stop working after updating the Playbook. OS 2.1 is also still in beta as well.

The CB Forum app and Photo Studio Ultimate are both android apps. Not sure about the others, but I suspect they are also. Which makes it sound like you've got a corrupted android player. A lot of people had this problem when OS 2.0 was first released. Those who had been running OS 1 and who had sideloaded the android player that had been extracted from the OS 2 beta, wound up having a non-functioning android player when they upgraded to OS 2.0. The fix, I believe, was to wipe and reinstall OS 2. I'm not sure if it is that easy a fix for a bad android player in the latest beta, but do a search- the problem has almost certainly been addressed.

Bloomberg Anywhere is android. An app is android if it runs in the android player. You can tell if an app is running in the android player by swiping down from the top. If the android taskbar shows at the bottom of the screen (with the back arrow at the bottom left) then the app is running in the android player.
