lollipop 5.0.1 update failing on htc one m8

The new lollipop version keeps crashing and freezing with various apps.  I have tried rebooting, and even doing a factory reset to no avail.  For example...the game words with friends immediately closes after it opens, as does the app Mimi (a 4Chan reader)...both if these worked flawlessly with the old version.  Also, at random times when using the app Reddit, the phone will lock up and become unresponsive...again, this is since the update.  The battery also drains faster than before, and the keyboard settings change by itself.  I wish I could simply go back to the old android version.  Any ideas about what the problem may be?

I don't see an option for uninstalling the app...but stopping the app seems to have helped.  Thanks

You should be able to at least uninstall the update and then stop Google Play from auto-updated apps so that you can update only the apps you want to and avoid ASW for the time being.
