Digital QST crashes constantly on iPad3

I am using a fully updated (iOS 6) iPad 3 with 64 GB or memory (wireless and Verizon 4g) that constantly crashes when reading QST. I've been on my wireless connection for the crashes.

The steps to cause the crash are as follows:

Select a QST to read.
Select read (not download).
Begin reading.
Swipe to turn pages quickly as if you are returning to the place last read.
After a few fast page turns, the app crashes back to the desktop.

I do see the cache holding what was read.

I can see this behavior every time I am in reading (not download mode, I haven't tested the failure in download so it may be there too) and it happens after a bunch of fast page turns every time.

QST looks great on the iPad by the way. Really nice. But we need to get the iPad app fixed.

No issues on the iPad other than the QST app.

I also have an iPad3 (64GB, wifi, no cel-capability). The QST app worked OK for me at first in October - I had downloaded just about all issues, and read/browsed a couple.

Then an update. At first, the app fired up, but I had terrible trouble viewing covers, and couldn't download or read anything :-(

I followed the FAQ steps, restarting my iPad and removing/reinstalling the QST app... Now, every time I try to start the QST app, it crashes back to the desktop immediately. No other apps (mis-)behave like this. I briefly see the ARRL splash screen, then right back to the desktop.

I'm fully up-to-date with iOS 6.0.1, bone-stock and lightly-used ipad with 1/2-dozen other apps (I use my iPad almost exclusively as an eReader, with Stanza and iBooks principally).
