App Issue?

Help! For the past several days when I open the app on my phone or tablet (both Samsung devices), I get a box in the center of the screen telling me rudely that "Unfortunately, Discuss Cooking has stopped".

I did the "clear cache" on my tablet, and "clear cache, uninstall, reinstall" on my phone. Neither worked. Is this unique to me? Or is anyone else having problems? Also, any other hints or suggestions as how to make it work on the mobiles would be appreciated.

At least my laptop is playing nice with DC, so no luck in you guys getting rid of me.

Sorry 'bout that.

1. Power your devices off,

2. Wait 30 minutes

3. Power devices back on, and log into bank account.

4. Send Bucky money.

... you should be good to go...

If not, repeat steps 1 thru 4, then just try 4 a few more times.

Worked in a store once where customers often paid by check, when asked the exact spelling I would spell out my name. Ohhh shuckyy darns - it never worked but got quite a few good laughs!

sorry CG - we're not helping you much are we....

Missing an O like Tronto.

Or, Oregun. (They didn't go anywhere. It's not Or-uh-gone.)

Thanks for the hint, Andy. It's nice to see that someone actually wants to help.

Just for comparison purposes I have a MacBook and an iPhone and haven't had any problems at all. :

Oh Ha Ha, Andy. Now I have to take your halo back...


You can be happy with your Mac and iPad/iPhone. I'll happily stay with the 'droids. Each OS has its pluses and minuses. One big plus for me is that I don't have to go to an Apple store to have my device serviced. I just pour a cup of coffee and hand my device off to my personal genius.

Just for grins and giggles, I'm having the same problem on my tablet and phone. It was working fine one day and closing itself down the next. Have done the same troubleshooting steps as CG. Hope someone can fix the issue.

GG, I bet our DHs are in cahoots, figuring it will keep us off of DC. Unfortunately, if I'm using the laptop, I tend to linger on DC, on Facebook, fall into more rabbit holes...*sigh*

OMGosh... thanks bucky! It worked but I think $1,000 per is a bit steep. Couldn't we work out a deal? I mean after all, I've paid you 4 times now.

I'm good with 3 attaboys, and a smile.

Welll, I'll subtract the smile as it cost me to cancel those checks!

Your wife's good. Is she for hire? I need someone to negotiate for me.
