Excellent App. i use it daily This is an excellent App. I'm always asked questions about Family. i have so many names that sometimes my memory is not good. i can search a simple name, partial name or even initials and find most anybody in me GEDCOM file. I can even send notes to my email to update my records.I highly recommend this app to any genealogist or novice.
Doesn't work on Nexus 7 Can't download gedocm to Nexus 7 and have it recognized. Can't Install it from an email attachment. Tried sending gedcom to URL listed in help section - doesn't exist anymore. Tried emailing developer for assistance. Mail returned because mailbox full. Unfortunately, no zero star rating available. Don't buy this app unless you have $10 to burn. If you do have $10 to burn, let me know and I'll take it. And I promise not to give you anything in return, unlike Family Bee.
Just right I have used this app virtually every day for the last couple of years. I check family member birthdays, spelling of names, as well as genealogy questions. I don't feel a need to edit on my handheld. But I absolutely love the Notes capability, and being able to email the notes to myself, so I can do whatever work necessary on my workhorse database on my desktop. Being able to search by first names so easily is *so* helpful.
Works Seamlessly: Great customer Support! If you are having problems: 1) read the instructions, 2) contact the developer. He does reply and he does fix problems! Note especially HOW you export Gedcom for use by this app and you will have no problems. It works on both my old and new Nexus. Update: developer helped and up and running once again!
Was OK but ... I used and loved FB for several years - but now it just doesn't work. My uncle is married to my husband's grandfather, my aunt to her grandmother and so on. My gedcom imports OK into other genealogy software, so I guess FB is corrupting it somehow, even after clean reinstalls and fresh gedcom. I'm missing it badly :( Solved this problem -my gedcom was being corrupted on creation, so FB is back on my favourite list!
Tried to download my gedcom several different ways and finally succeeded with sending it as an email attachment, opened the attachment and it loaded! I haven't used it very much, but it seems to have what I need while away from home doing research. All my facts and notes from FamilyTree Maker are on the tablet. I have a Samsung tablet and the button to open the menu was not visible. Emailed the developer and he said to long press the recent program button, which worked after I figured out what he meant by "recent programs button"!
