Ratings and Reviews
Needs an update. When I try to zoom in on my documents they are blurry and unreadable. Adding info from Legacy seems more like converting and then downloading my Legacy info, not syncing like with Evernote or other programs that sync info. Was not worth the cost.
I am one that is usually reluctant to download updates for at least a month. But I held my breath and updated.
I am LOVING this latest update. So many new and improved features.
I’m not a syncing type. I use Families so that I can carry my data base along. So no feedback on that.
But. The features. Wahoo!
Families is an excellent app. It is well worth every penny. I have a copy on my iPad2 and my iPhone4. It is great to be able to carry my entire Legacy database with me on research trips or just family gatherings. Two way syncing has been flawless for me. I have never understood folks who purchase an app, then because they may be having issues with the app (usually user error or misunderstanding how a function works) they feel it necessary to write a negative Apps Store review. As has often been stated, a developer can't respond to you and assist you with any problems if you just choose to write a negative review, but make no effort to contact the developer to correct and/or assist you with your issue. If you have problems, contact TelGen. You will find their support to be outstanding. Disclaimer: I am not associated with Families (TelGen) or Legacy Family Tree (Millennia). I am just a very happy and satisfied customer of both.
