Fantastic App Save One Minor Flaw

I really like the Ancestry App. I’m on it constantly as I am a professional genealogist and it’s the easiest way to get data real-time when whether I'm standing in some ancient cemetery or at the National Archives in DC. There is one flaw in the design which frequently raises my blood-pressure: the search “feature,” if indeed you can call it a feature. The slide bar is not effective to isolate specific searches within the various Ancestry databases and there’s no way to alter the individuals dates within the search. This can make for a serious headache when you’re searching for a common surname while standing in said ancient cemetery.

Other than that one issue, it’s never let me down and it’s a lot easier to pull out my iPhone and load recent pictures/media than it is to carry a laptop into the field.

Ancestry app

This app is a terrific little tool to add to the fun of researching our ancestry. Of course the whole tree doesn’t fit on one page, because it’s huge. However, if I have a thought about one of the lines and want to study it a bit, I can just go there and read and think of the hands and the associations and connections. Very handy. Some of my lines are a mess and complicated, so I can ponder those - zoom in on one thing. I can focus on one thing. As long as I can get updates, I’ll be fine. My iPad mini can’t get any more updates on ancestry so I’m irritated about that to no end because of the money I put out for it. But my iPhone works fine with it. Quick features - better than on my regular desktop.

Love Love LOVE this app!

Must have app for any genealogist!!!! Always updating and improving tools and data. I have learned SO much more than I thought possible about my ancestors! I am not sure I understand the complaints from some about the app not having all the functions of the Ancestry web site. I understand that everyone doesn't drag around or have access to a computer, but if you have access to a browser then you have access to the Ancestry website. Whether it be on a tablet or a phone, I can use a browser to get to the website and do everything that I would from a computer. Having access to both the website and the app is great and I use both everyday.
