How to Fix Pokemon GO App Crashes

It will be hard to find why the app crashes sometimes even if you are doing everything fine. That said, the application crashes for numerous reasons and it is to be noted that a spinning Pokeball will appear and disappear in the Google maps-Esque layout. If the spinning Pokeball appears, it meant that the game is syncing with the servers and the servers are refreshing to keep you in contact with the game.

You might face many difficulties if you are using a less speed internet connection. As the game refreshes for every 15-30 seconds, it must be noted that you are on a good network connection when this refresh happens. If your network reception is not that great, then you might notice a frozen gameplay screen, which indicates that the game is trying to connect with servers. If your device reconnects with the internet, then the game will resume. If you device failed to achieve the network connection, the game will crash and you need to restart the game.

Sometimes, the game won’t even resume even after achieving good network reception. This is mainly due to the game lost the connection with its servers. This can be fixed by restarting the game.

The above mentioned are some of the frozen app errors, which can be apparently fixed by restarting the game.
