Mobile App Troubleshooting Guide (Android)

Common app issues

An application issue could be caused by either the phone or the application itself. Some general errors on apps built for Android include:

  • Crashing
  • Won’t open
  • Won’t respond
  • Job Card not synced
  • Grey Login Screen (usually troubleshooting step 3 - reset the cache)


Follow the troubleshooting steps below to resolve the issue. If problems still continue after you've tried these troubleshooting steps, please email Assetminder tech support tickest@assetminder.help
