Performing a "Cold Start" of BrowZine on Android

If you run into trouble, and things seem a bit "off," one common fix is to perform a "cold start." 

A cold start forces certain settings within the app to reset, potentially helping to alleviate the problem.  This should not be necessary under normal circumstances, but if you contact support about your issue, they may advise you to do this.  It's very simple, takes just a few moments, and can be useful when dealing with other misbehaving Android apps, too.

However, because of the wide variety of Android device manufacturer's and their customizations of the operating system, the method by which you do this can vary from device, to device.  Below are instructions for three common devices but many other devices will likely follow something SIMILAR to at least one of these instruction sets.

4. Inside the "Storage" area, tap "Clear Cache."



5. Exit out of the "Settings" area and relaunch BrowZine from your device.
