Nice looking interface but functional problems

The program is a nice looking interface but it sadly suffers from lots of bugs at the moment. Zooming in and out on the tree view causes a ton of problems, eventaully the entire program will be encircled in a purple box with a white line going down the middle. I routinely have to cmd q it and open it again as it becomes unresponsive, but not frozen. I’d love to see the developers fix a lot of these issues to make it workable. The price is definitely reasonable for a more modern looking geneaology app at $10, but it still needs a lot of basic fixes.

Lame - waste of space

I really want this app to work.

It looks awesome but is not functional. As someone has already pointed out, some of the functions the user manual says it has it not there. There was no family staus or marital status box. I couldnt merge people. I couldnt make my wife the mother of my kids. It made some seperate woman.

Seriously buggy. Please fix bugs and make things work and I know this can be a 5 star app.

Something to add into each profile is the ability to have a box for health realated issues. (not just a comment box).

If you google genogram, this would be very helpful to include functionality to make something like this. Basically a family tree with lots of detail that can be looked at at one time based on lines and shapes.

Anyway - fix the bugs and make it functional and you will get many more stars than just 1. Because right now, this app hardly has earned half a star.


Since the app seems to never be updated and is a super piece of crap - it is now deleted off my mac.

Not ready for prime time

This app has a lot of promise but it’s definitely not ready for prime time. Features are not present - IE you are supposed to be able to option-click on multiple people and merge them. Sometimes option-clicking works but when it does, you don’t have the option to merge. SImilarly, you are supposed to be able to add children to a marriage, but as designed you can only add them to a single person - they don’t connect to the marriage, just to the individual. Might work fine for bottom-to-top relationship building but anything more complex or top-down will be problematic.

Fixes would be very, very nice.
