3. Restart your phone after this step and install it from the Play / App Store.

If you are still having problems with opening your app, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of the issue, your name and your mobile number.
To investigate the issue further it helps us to know what handset make & model you are using, What operating system is installed and if you receive any kind of errror message when trying to open your app. Please let us know if you have done either an OS update or Diamond App update recently which may have caused the issue.
