Instructables APP for Android (on Nexus 7) - All I get is the intro pictures.? Answered

This topic was originally posted in "answers: technology"

I was asked to post it to this forum as well.

Synopsis of problem:

I had just installed the Instructables App on a Nexus 7.  But, all I saw was the four intro pictures "Explore, Share, Make".  Could not get past these and navigate to the site.

I have the 2nd generation nexus 7 running android v4.4.2.

Tried tapping the screen, resizing, sliding, and nothing. It would just move between the above mentioned images.
Discovered if i logged into the instructables site via chrome, and selected the app to display everything afterwards, it worked.  Basically, it would not let me do anything if I initiated the app first.

Once I got past my initial login via chrome I could return to app to login, navigate, etc. and the app appears to work fine.
