Troubleshooting: Uninstall and Reinstall an App

Uninstall and Reinstall an App

There are times when it becomes necessary to uninstall and reinstall an app. In the case of Lavu POS, any experienced communication issues between the Lavu POS App and peripheral devices (printers, credit card swipers, etc), unresponsiveness, or noticeable lag between operations may be helped by force quitting the Lavu POS App.

Uninstalling and reinstalling the Lavu POS App is typically the second troubleshooting step (after force quitting the app) whenever there is an issue listed above. However, if in Offline Mode or otherwise not connected to the Internet you should not force quite the Lavu POS App since information can be lost. Furthermore, if you cannot connect to the Internet, you will not be able to download or log back into the Lavu POS App or Reload Settings.
