FB & Twitter Won't Work

The built in FB & Twitter apps have stopped working on my vox. When I click them I just get a blank screen that constantly refreshes but nothing loads. I've had my vox less than a week.

Please help!

Sounds like they are staying "stuck" as they're loading.
Did you try shutting down the Vox and then re-starting it? If that doesn't work, try then I would uninstall and go to the Play Store and re-install new versions of the apps from there?

Yes, I did restart and even shut down but to no avail. I also tried to force stop it but that didn't work either. I'm thinking it won't let me uninstall because they are preloaded apps, but I will look into it.

the pre installed FB & Twitter are shortcuts to open the web pages of this services

try clearing the cache for the browser app, if this doesnt work you can try deleting the data for the browser app, but this will lose any settings/stored passwords you have on the internet
