Customer Reviews

Almost excellent

This is good support for my tree, but so many hints are irrelevant and they have to be opened to be dismissed, when it is quite evident they are useless! A simpler way of doing this is needed, rejecting hints without having to open them, and also a way of reassigning these to correct person when viewing. the method that exists now only let's you do this if there is some degree of match.

being able to view my tree and show it to others on a tablet is great, though.

Ok but Limited and Too Many Faults

Quite useful for browsing family tree and assessing "hints" but limited tools for modify tree. However if hints are accepted there is a problem with synchronising data with Family Tree Maker in Windows with a "no source citation information" error.

App does not offer means to merge individuals, split/ join parents and children, or to copy/link existing events to other individuals.

Recently tried to add Father as new person but App froze and had to be reset . Given the limited capabilities and flaky implementation I would have to say this is a rather poor offering.

Very nearly excellent

For the amount of data needed to make this work this app is great. Why oh why do the makers persist in putting their own historical pieces in the timelines is beyond me. They're irritating and often completely irrelevant to the particular person's own history. Get rid! Also, I'm in the UK so don't want to have to trawl through tonnes of US and Canadian results in my searches. If these are sorted out it would be a five star app.
