Help! The application is frozen! What should I do?!!!
Most problems can be resolved by either closing out the app completely and restarting the app or applying a hard restart to your iPhone.
To close out Vocabador completely, double-click the Home button (the button below the screen). All open applications will now appear on the bottom of the iPhone screen. Scroll left until you find the Vocabador icon. Gently press down on the Vocabador icon and continue pressing until the icon begins to shake and a small red circle containing an “-” symbol appears. Click the little red circle above the Vocabador icon. The Vocabador icon will disappear. Dont worry! This only shuts down the application. The app is not deleted. Click the Home button again to stop the other icons from shaking. Then, click the Home button one last time to return to your Home Screen. From the Home screen, locate the Vocabador icon and tap it to launch the app. That should do the trick!
If the app is still frozen or not working properly, a hard restart of your iPhone may be required. Simultaneously hold down the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button (the little button on the top of your phone) until the phone reboots. After rebooting, locate the Vocabador icon and tap it to launch the app.
