My Instagram has been playing up lately. It’s been taking ages to load and then crashes if I try to switch to photo mode, or take a photo, or sometimes even when I just look at someone else’s photos!
It’s actually been quite distressing, because the first thing that you check is ‘Am I running the latest version?’ – I was.
So then you check to see what else is running. The answer – no other apps are running (I’m a bit obsessive about that actually).
So maybe it’s my phone?!!!!!!!
Stupidly, I’ve put up with this problem for about three weeks. When all I needed to do was ask Google. “But,” I hear you say, “you’re a librarian, and don’t librarians hate Google?” And the answer is, “Hells, no!” because Google had the answer to my question – Instagram crashes when taking a photo.
The solution, it turns out, is super-easy. Power off. Yes, that’s right. Power off. Because power off clears the memory.
