The Happy Color app keeps freezing

By Patti Hayes   4 months ago

It keeps freezing up or a lag after playing about 10 minutes on the app. If I close out and restart that will sometimes fix the issue for another 10 minutes or so. Then back to the same problem. This has been happening for months. I kept thinking it was something to do with internet speed, but my husband kept saying no and then I found these other posts with the same problem.

The Happy Color app is downloaded to my Samsung tablet; it was working perfectly yesterday. This evening I attempted to open the app. The open screen appeared, flickered and then froze. I have turned the tablet completely off multiple times, but to no avail. Please provide some other steps. I really don't want to uninstall the app and lose all the pictures. Thank you

Frequently, several times on the same picture, everything freezes completely, and the only way to move on is to close and restart the app. This has happened on multiple devices, including my new iPhone.

I was working on Daily picture when it froze. I shut my kindle down and turned it back on. Now when I click on Happy Color it acts like it is starting up but after the flower is colored it stops. I have had trouble with it freezing as I am working on a picture. I love this game. It was the first coloring game I've done and my favorite. Please fix whatever glitch is causing this. Thank you!

By Dorothy Swerline   1 year ago

I'm 80 years young and have done jig saw puzzles all my life, but unable to now so discovered HAPPY COLOR and was so HAPPY.....everything was five until the updated apt and know it takes several times to load and then just freezes up as I'm enjoying the picture. Can somethings be done about it. I don't mind the ads and have even bought some things because of them. Hope this can be solved as I'm really enjoying it while I'm connected but not so when I have to close up and come back to it later. Sincerely: Thank you Dorothy Swerline
