Cannot see apps is a generic fault description. Try the following you may get lucky.
Scenario 1 you have no backup. Boot up from os disk and select disk utiliity from the tools menu.
Check drive status from high-lighting drive manufacturer and checking smart status. Degraded or anything other than Verified you are stuffed dont risk disk repair it could make things worse. Best reboot holding T button (Target disk mode) and connect to another mac via firewire and backup if you can any data immediately. Concentrate on User folder. Replace drive and go to Scenario 3.
Scenario 2. You backed up.If Disk Utility will not repair volume. Best get a copy of Disk Warrior. If disk structure repaired and still will not boot up properly reinstall system with import user option.
Scenario 3. Give up trying to get data. Boot up from os disk. Reformat and install system and reside yourself to being a plonker for not backing up. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP. :)
