The developers also provided the solution to the ‘green screen’ issue and wrote, “We want you to get back to scrolling the night away ASAP. If you’re stuck on a green screen, delete your app and reinstall. We recommend writing down your login credentials first!” The app has said that if you continue to face issues despite reinstalling the app, contact email@example.com
The solution has worked for many users. “I thought I was the only one. I deleted it and then download it again, and it worked.
