News Update is stuck or frozen

We've seen an issue with our news screen locking up.  It tells you about the update but won't let you click the button.  If that is the case:

If the game seems to be stuck on a screen whenever you open it then try a force close.
You can do a force-close by: 

On iOS 5 and 6

1. Press your phone's round Home button to exit to your phone's home screen;
2. Then Double-tap the Home button to reveal the recently running apps across the BOTTOM of the screen, Word Chums should be the first app listed. 
3. Then do a Long tap on the Word Chums icon (make sure it's the one listed across the VERY bottom row on the screen) until you see the red minus appear and the icons will start wiggling;
4. Tap the red minus to force-close Word Chums   (It should NOT ask you if you want to delete the app)
5. Then press the Home button again to exit that mode;
6. Then restart Word Chums, and you should be at the same spot in the game, and can give it another try.  


On iOS 7.0:

1. Press your phone's round Home button to exit to your phone's home screen; 
2. Then Double-tap the Home button to reveal the recently running apps across the BOTTOM of the screen.
3.  Scroll left or right to Word Chums
4.  Swipe up on the Word Chums "card".
5.  Press home button and tap Word Chums

On Android or Kindle:
Just press your device back button to exit the app and restart
