  • Interesting Information!!!

    Love the app!!! I’m learning sooo much about my family and its history!👍👍👍
  • Great app; easy to use

    By Triscuitnut
    This is a wonderful alternative for me, as I travel a lot. Being able to research using my phone or iPad is great. There are occasional glitches that still need to be fixed: (1) I cannot comment on another member’s photos or documents while in the app (it used to work; not sure what happened); and (2) the app will not accept a surname change (that used to work, as well). For both of these tasks I have to exit the app and go to the actual Ancestry site. I hope the folks who oversee the app will stay on top of these small glitches, as it sure gets annoying. Other than that, this app is perfect, and I use it daily!
  • Great looking and functioning app! Frustrating that all info not visable w out full membership tho

    I haven't used other ancestry tree apps so I can't give it a 5 but I believe this is a solid resource for building one's tree! I do wish we didn't have to pay more for international info... I can't really afford the cost so I'm not able to access a lot European info and spend more time than I'd like on other apps filling in info that Ancestry blocks me from accessing.
  • Improved over the years

    Just reactivated my membership after several years. About 3000 new hints! I also ordered a DNA kit, will be interesting to see if any surprises.

    By Seerz app I love using this app however I wish they would make it easier to search other public ancestry trees within this app. That would be awesome! I’d give it a five star on that one thing! Also there was a transcribing error on my Great Grandfathers info. I screenshot it and sent an email but they’ve yet to correct it. Anyway enjoy!
  • Terrific, Better than I Hoped

    By Some999one else
    I am very happy with this because it is easy to find more and more information that others already have saved.

  • I like it

    I’ve used this app for a long time and I noticed that when I try to edit someone’s name it will take me to the edit screen, I edit the name, press save and then NONE of my edits to the name save. It also keeps confusing siblings with each other even though they don’t even have very similar names. I would rate this app 5 stars if these two things were fixed. A suggestion for when you add someone in, if you only add one parent and then add all the children as that person’s kids and then you add the parent’s spouse which is the other parent I always have to add all the relationships between the kids and the other parent manually and it takes FOREVER to load when I do that and it’s a hassle. It would be great if you could choose if that’s that person’s kids when you add them in. I can’t remember if it does that when you manually add someone in, but when you let the potential father/mother add the other parent in itself I always have to add the relationship between the kids and the other parent. I don’t know if that makes sense, but it’s the best I could explain it.
