Yes, WordNewt does freeze my Newt especially if it has been used a while after a soft reset. The only way out is the remove battery reset. But I love it and since I only use it when I'm doing writing projects, I do a soft reset and immediately launch WordNewt. No problems.

When I was using Lextionary, I never had any freeze problems. Check this out. How much storage space do you have left (Internal & External). There should be at least 10% left or you'll start having freezes occurring more often.
