Improvements needed

I have to keep signing in (this seems more so with my iPad than my iPhone...). It would be most convenient to sign in once and stay signed in. Also, the start-up is very slow. Maybe reduce the amount of images being loaded at once (providing images of the magazine covers from 6 years ago is a bit excessive. Just have it sorted by years and the option to go back by year so the initial start can load faster).
Maybe allow notes within the app and a place marker for the notes? Have these accessible from the main menu so it is readily available instead of only by clicking the magazine.
The APA logo at startup is low resolution. It is not very noticeable on the phone, but it is on an iPad or larger screen.
I appreciate the accessibility offered by the app, it just needs a few things here and there.

Time to update!

APA - your app now crashes upon opening. You need to update it to work with iOS 9.
