Ratings and Reviews
Satisfying app but where’s the iPad vers/ & why isn’t data viz better?
The main service/product that 23andMe delivers to their customers is data, and so how that data is presented is absolutely clutch to the experience and paramount in achieving satisfying results. For the most part this is delivered on the iPhone, but opening that same app at double-pixels on an iPad is disappointing.
Also, the data visualizations could’ve been delivered with a bit more pizzazz. The newer iPhones and especially iPads have processors that can render 3-D graphics and data visualizations. Taking this a step further, the app developer could make the visualizations interactive, especially considering the touchscreen nature of mobile devices.
In summary, the service is cool & interesting and the app manages to display your data to you in a fine enough manner along with unobtrusive tutorials, questionnaires, FAQ, and other helpful things. I reserved the fifth star from this review bc they really should have a native app for the iPad, and the data visualizations should shine a bit more with Apple’s faster processors in the later iOS device generations.
My wife and I took this test and thought it would be interesting to have our son take it too. We went through the whole process and when my son’s results came back they weren’t what I expected. He had no sign of even being a distant relative of mine. I thought maybe the results were incorrect so we took it again and it didn’t change. I could tell the test was accurate since it was consistent. My wife then told me that he is the son of her psychiatrist. I was furious and depressed. This boy I had raised and paid for throughout his whole life wasn’t mine. This test is extremely accurate according to my wife. My wife and I have been distant since this test. We live in the same house but separate bedrooms. I wish this child never existed. I hate myself for thinking this. My life used to be perfect until he took this test. My whole life would’ve been content if I wouldn’t have known, I’d still have my wife and “son”. I recommend using this product and would use it again.
No “connections” option
My partner and I both goth 23andMe kits about a month ago, to find out about both ancestry and health reports. Everything was super interesting and I’m glad I did it, however, for some reason his app shows a “Connections” option that can access your DNA relatives via the app but my app does NOT. When I emailed the customer service they informed there was no way currently to access DNA relatives via the app, even though I stated in my email my partner had that capability. Also, I just updated the app and it says that with the current update you get the “Connections” option, but alas, to no avail. I even deleted the app and reinstalled, STILL no “Connections” option...? WTH 23andMe?? I paid the same amount for my kit and my iPhone is the same generation as my partner’s IPhone, IOS is fully updated and yet he has access to more features?!
