Android ANR (App not responding | Jacque was right :-)

I was thinking that if it's indeed a hang it would show how far the app
activation proceeded before the hang. Maybe that would help/confirm that
this is indeed a hang or crash.

Just a thought

He's not crashing, it's a hang. I can't remember if logcat shows those.

My guess is that it's a memory problem since he's running a very old version
of Android with not much RAM, and restarting the app may force retained apps
to release RAM. But a log can't hurt at any rate.

Klaus, remove all unnecessary widgets from your home screen(s). Also go
through all the apps in settings and disable or delete any you don't use. 
Android will not allow you to do that for required apps so if the buttons
are enabled then it's safe. Most devices come with a lot of bloatware that
runs in the background and uses memory. Widgets are especially bad at that.
