When relaunching an app I get a blank screen

Summary:

Applications may need to be optimized to ensure Fire OS 5 compatibility when setting how activities should react to being paused and resumed. If a blank screen appears when re-launching the application, it is most likely due to a conflict with the Android Runtime (ART).

Check to make sure that the app is following the current best practices for Android Lollipop, as several of the media playback methods have changed since its release. Pay special attention to the onPause() and onResume() methods as well. If the application is utilizing Unity 3D, confirm that it has been built using the latest version of the game engine.
