Apps crashing since Friday evening update
coinneachfitzpatrick

Some kind of point update pushed to my HTC One M8 on Friday night (24 April). Since then, the following apps either crash instantly or after one minute of use:

My Verizon Mobile

USAA

Discover

Match

Verizon Accessories

CreditKarma

I've done the usual useless "clear cache and data / recovery boot / uninstall and reinstall" masochism tango on all of them, to no effect. Lollipop has been a major PITA since the forced OTA, ignoring my settings and killing my phone's performance, but this? This is unacceptable. I am NOT doing yet another hard reset.

Anyone else seen this and have any other ideas, aside from going back to Windows Phone (which is looking better every day, TBH)?

I was having problems with a lot of my apps crashing on my Droid Turbo. I disabled this "Android System Webview" app and hopefully that help. The biggest issue was the "My Verizon Mobile" app crashing. I couldn't use my phone as a phone. I sure hope this does it.

Uh-oh. I just created a post about my HTC One M8 crashing with the My Verizon app.

Looks like a pattern. They must want us to buy an M9...

Uninstalled "Android System Webview" and it seemed to clear up all my problems on my HTC One M8.

Everything working fine now. Good luck and post back if it works for you.

Android System Webview has been updated recently.  Are you sure you have the current updated version?

Ya checked it and I do. I disabled it and my "My Verizon App" still continues to crash. It makes it awful hard to use the phone as a phone when the app keeps crashing.
