Can't cancel FM Go search for remote files on open

Yesterday, I was at home using FM Go on my iPad to connect to a database hosted on my home computer.

 

This morning, I opened my iPad to use FM Go to connect to a different database hosted on my work computer.

 

When I open FM Go, it takes about 20-30 seconds of the "Attempting to connect to remote server" screen before it concludes that it can't connect to a computer that is no longer there to be found.

 

I see no way to get around this wait, and it's really annoying, especially since I no loner want to connect to the device it was connected to last night and when I'm trying to connect to a database to show something to a colleague.

 

Why is there no way to cancel the attempt to restore the previous remote connection? (And if there is a way, it needs to be much more obvious)
