Hi Peter. I found a prolific bug which fixed problems on my OnePlus 5T. Are you sure you have the latest version?

Can you send me what your 3 selected primary modules are, in order?

Do you specify a preferred Word Study Bible?

Also, which lexicon have you installed if other than the default Strongs Greek and Hebrew?

Finally, give a specific verse you see the crash.

I'll have a look. Using the default module install package, selecting WHNU as the first of the three primary modules, and no preferred Word Study Bible, I get no more crashes.

Thanks for reporting Peter. Hope we can get things more stable.
