Have to sign in every time

The auto log in feature does not work. Please fix this! I have to enter my login info every time I enter the app, even if I never closed it.

The app signs you out every five minutes and the auto sign in function does not work. It is very irritating to use.

Glitchy. Oh so glitchy

For those of you who don't know, trade a plane is probably the largest aviation specific classified publication in existence. They tend to have premium quality listings albeit at premium prices. That's fair enough.
They had an app that was not as flashy looking a few years ago but it worked. Rock solid worked. The new app is laggy and bug ridden. If you happen to get impatient and mistakenly double tap a tile because it's taking several seconds to respond... it locks up. The app doesn't hesitate to blame the user. It regularly claims that network connection speeds are to blame (I stream video on all my devices No Problem) but this little app needs more than 50mbps? Not likely.
I would have given one star but they do help people sell some of the best aircraft available. Use the website. Far less nonsense.
