Best app for IPhone


I am using this app to create a gedcom file for John of Gaunt’s direct ancestors, based on Wikipedia. The file consists on nearly 2000 names. This is the only app for the IPhone that I discovered that was up-to-the-task; thus the 5 star rating.

It does have a few hitches:

(A) There is no undo button

(b) The x to clear a field is easily tapped when entering a long line into a field

(C) If an person is the ancestor of more than one person on the Ahnentafel Report, the following two problems occur:

(1) Although the person is correctly displayed at the first possible position, the highest possible ahnentafel number is assigned. The highest possible number is carried forward to subsequent generation, which ends up in a jumbled numbering mess. To overcome this problem, I manually enter the lowest possible ahnentafel number as part of the title.

(2) Subsequent positions on the report the above person do not refer back to the first position. If someone has the gedcom file, they can use the electronic file to find the person by name. But with an extensive data base, this severely limits the use of the ahnentafel file as a stand-alone.

The following problem is shared by programs written for the computer and IPhone: The ahentafael report can be printed as s hard copy or as a PDF file, but cannot be printed to Word or Pages.

As I previously stated, this is the best app that I found for the IPhone, therefore, I recommend it.



i hate this app; tried to return it, not permitted. Won't load any gedcoms and lost all my data that was in MacFamilyTree7. Now i have nothing. If I had gotten my money back, i would not have bothered to write this horrible review for this horrible product. I am worse off than I was, lost all my data on my computer and spent hours of misery trying to upload a gedcom. Already reported this on their website

Ads and iPhone X update


This app should have no ads for the price we pay for it. That’s ridiculous. And it needs an upgrade for the iPhone X. Other than that the apps works pretty well for me. I have the Mac desktop app as well and they work well together.
