  • App bug?

    By Jace2010
    The app keeps crashing since the update. I've tried restarting my phone, closing app, everything. I can't open it any more...
  • Convenience

    By Jonokun
    Very convenient I can do this research from both smartphone, tablet and PC.
  • Great App Despite what T. Y. T. Says

    By Rockin' Ralph
    This is absolutely the best genealogy app out there. So simple to use. Despite what T. Y. T. says in his review. You do need to have an online account (that is free by the way). But this just ensures your data is saved and accessible anywhere you go. Most apps out there have some form of online account that you need to sign up with. Not sure what he spent $30 on? Unless it was to buy the PC software which is worth the price. I do wish there was a way that you could merge/remove duplicate records like you can on the PC app. I use this app daily and absolutely love it. In fact something's I like better than the PC app. It would be nice to be able to merge/compare entries from within the app itself. Keep the updates coming. Keeps getting better and better.
  • Absolutely poor

    This is a waste of time. Do not buy anything in app, it is a scam. You have to add everyone manually... I dont know anyone's name above my grandparents, this wont help you. $30 gone, do not be fooled. The app will keep hinting that you are connected but that persons tree is private. It keeps accessing their website to safari making things too small to see.... Plus your relatives name will only show up on census if you are lucky! Then use initials for you family and birthdates and you get the same documents... Check it out but do not spend any money

    I use the PC software and online website interface for updating my family tree and this app offers that extra touchscreen convenience. For all versions I would like to see a drag and drop upgrade feature as there's a fair bit of cumbersome manual work involved that should have become obsolete. Overall a great app.
