Black screen

Latest update sometimes go to a black screen when using. Do not know how to get it unstuck except waiting a long time.

Works Perfectly

Works just fine if you, shocking I know, follow the instructions when you launch the app. Seriously, save yourself some frustration and the time it took you to write a negative review and just follow the instructions (wow, following the instructions, what a crazy idea).
