iPhone 4S shuts down while using some aps

I am having problems with my iPhone while using aps.  I can be using Facebook, using my email or playing a game and the app shuts down and returns me to my home screen.  Is there anything I can do?  I have downloaded the latest updates and nothing seems to help.  I would appreciate any assistance!!!  Thank you!

I agree with AdamE_VZW. When this starts happening, it is time to factory reset your device. I have had this same behavior happen in the past with iPods, iPads and iPhones. Apps just randomly quitting and returning to the home screen. In the past, a factory reset usually gets it working again.
