Which device? Is it still slow after you shut off your machine and turned it back on?

Kindle Fire 1st Generation. I turned it off and back on and no change. There is a 20+ second delay after I press opponents game and get to view the board. I get to see a black screen for that time. It's really annoying. I wish I hadn't updated.

Works fine for me after the update. (I also have the Kindle 1st Generation)

Try rebooting your Kindle Fire:
Unplug charger from the Kindle (if attached)
Press and hold the power button for a full 30 seconds. (ignore the "Shut down" message)
Then press the power button normally and let the Kindle Fire restart; this can take a minute or two.

Thanks Coleen, but I've tried rebooting a number of times and there is no change. I'm wondering if removing it from my Kindle Fire and reinstalling might work. I don't want to take the chance of losing my username and the people I've been playing with for over a year.

Did you do that? If so, did it keep your games? My Kindle Fire HD 8.9 freezes after I have made several moves. It also does it to my opponents on whatever device they are using. Rebooting does nothing so I thought I might try a re-install

If you delete the Program entirely, it will still keep your games.

Did it again -the point counter is gone (again) as of a few minutes ago. PLEASE give us a paid app like every other device has! !
