black screen on app?

2 weeks ago I got an iphone4 and dl'd the ds app. no problems. yesterday it said "error connection timed out" (I get this a lot with ds, phone or laptop) and then the app went black. Still is like that. Should I delete app and re-dl it? Thanks!

I would try to close the app completely (double click your home button and swipe till you find it. Then hold the app icon till it shakes and gets that little minus sign then tap the minus sign). I've gotten hung up before and that worked.

I would never have known. My son was dl-ing games to my phone ( who knows why, he has an I touch) and he said, "you know you have to do this" and showed me how. Dh has a droid and neither of us have iPods so we were clueless.
