    I have learned a ton about family history through issue with app is they do not have hints for other family trees that you can access from an actual computer...aside from that it is great
  • Ancestry Everywhere!

    I use the app on my phone and IPad. It is great. I have my desktop on with Ancestry, the IPad is a check. Or I will use the app to research hints and then later sync the information to my desktop Family Tree Maker. This app is great also for a quick show of family pictures! LOVE IT!

    Seems to have many new features since the last time I used it.
  • Tree building lite

    By Glacoma
    This is a great app. Allows quick tree building and exploration. While a link to heftier access via a browser or program (I use Rootsmagic) is essential for more detailed construction, tinkering, and testing/repairing, I can see further development in this area of mobile access as a logical path of commercial development for Ancestry.
  • Superb
