Customer Reviews

Superb genealogy app - works perfectly

MacFamilyTree is a superb genealogy app. Don’t listen to people who claim that GEDCOM import doesn’t work - it works perfectly and I do A LOT of genealogical work with other members of my genealogy group. There has never been any problem with wrong assigments of states and counties in the USA. iCloud sync is working fine, too.

FamilySearch is one of the best research services ever, I have been able to find thousands of ancestors I could add to my family tree. There are even official church, police, immigration other documents you can download directly from FamilySearch (like a church register I found for an ancestor)

Customer support is fast and friendly, they were able to answer all questions I sent them so far.

Don’t Buy - iCloud Sync Doesn’t Work!

One of the key advirtised feature of the program is sync across all devices via iCloud. THAT IS NOT TRUE! Synchronization used to work till release of Yosemite/iOS 8. Since then - there is no syncing and no way to use on iOS 8 (unless you build a new tree on iPad/iPhone that is higly unlikely case).

The customer support service provided the following comment: "the "100%"-error is unfortunately an iCloud server problem caused by Apple… Since iCloud is a blackbox and apps just attach themselves to the iCloud interface, we unfortunately cannot circumvent this problem by updating MobileFamilyTree”.

In short, the Sinium Software knows the issue but (for more that one year since release of Yosemite and iOS) doesn’t do anything and continue to provide false promises that the tree will be in sync. Stay away and save your money for an app that works.

I don’t love it-- but I do like it quite a bit

Finding a genealogy program I love has been impossible. I don’t love MacFamilyTree, but I do like it and I’m using it “first” more often now than most other programs I own. None of the genealogy programs out there really seem to work easily with my workflow.

What I really do like is the variety of charts and reporting options. While I enter much of my source data into a variety of other programs, I often dump GEDCOM files into MacFamilyTree to print charts. The Research Assistant has also been valuable, though filtering through the long lists can take time.

iCloud syncing has worked great for me across my Macs (Yosemite) and my iPhone (iOS 8).
