Either the ribnet app is compromised by a virus or you have a virus or malware on your smartphone. And before anyone says you cant get viruses on phones, yes you can.

It maybe a temorary bit of malware in memory, so turning off and on may solve it, if it doesnt then could be the ribnet app or your smartphone has something more permanent. You could try a complete re install of the operating system but that may be a bigger pain if you lose your data, there are some smartphone antivirus products around that might help. If you have got some form of malware or virus on your phone then remember not to access any online banking etc from your phone.

I stopped the app & restarted, all good now. I also had Wikipedia open & I had previously searched for Anschluss, which what was appearing in the magnifying glass. I'm guessing something got stuck in the gubbins somewhere.
