Sign in problem solved with update
The problem that seemed to require signing in almost every day seems to be solved, although it still often crashes the first time you open it each day. Performs mostly okay, although sometimes there are some text garbling issues, but not a big deal. It would be nice if photos, which are pretty small, could be enlarged the way you can with the text. There is a continuing glitch with being able to see the comics on Fridays, but other days are fine.
