FAQ: App X isn't working correctly. How can I fix it?

It seems to me we're going to get an awful lot of questions like this. It seems reasonable to have a set of stock steps to take for misbehaving apps.

I suggest that my answer to one such question would be a good start.


Steps to take with apps that just aren't working properly is:

From Settings | Applications | Manage applications | <application>

  • Force stop

if that doesn't help

  • Clear cache

if that doesn't help

  • Clear data

and if that still doesn't help, try the nuclear option:

  • uninstall and re-install
