    so exactly what happens if you try to open it in the app? any error message or tries to open or just freezes. also what is the app name? you can try turning the phone off then back on. also uninstalling then reinstall. finally, you can try deleting the partition cache and see if it helps.

    Wipe cache partition: Samsung Galaxy S8
