Driving me nuts!! Can no longer sign in as it doesn't recognise my ancestry log in... why do I need to sign in again anyway? The initial set up sign in should be more than adequate. Frustrating, annoying, and renders a great idea useless.

Tired of failed attempts The idea is wonderful, just the execution that isn't. When I first downloaded the app I had no issues uploading images direct to my family tree, now every image is failing to upload, and that is on wifi. I had hoped to upload images from the family reunion I'll be attending soon, but I suspect I'll be doing it the old fashioned way, when I get home and have probably forgotten who I should attach the images to, unless there are some serious improvements.
