Who ever designed this app needs to rethink their occupation. Utterly useless, full of bugs, simple stuff like clicking on a button causes it to crash. I read previous reviews and waited for the updated app. What a mistake. What an utter disappointment to think that you have sole rights to the 1921 census. Then you require a subscription and then charge for each entry. Shame on you.

Currently, the app has very poorly implemented document image view functionality: viewing transcriptions in the app is fine, but viewing a document as an image is poorly implemented. The image viewer controls do not scale and centre to the device viewport, nor does the image options toolbar. Please fix this broken functionality to provide a reasonable image viewing experience in the Android app.

Diabolical app. Constant crashes. When you spend time in studying a hint, accepting the facts and hit merge, it stalls, dumps you back to the hints page. Have cancelled my subscription and moving my tree elsewhere after the trial. I have been with my heritage for 4 years as a premium user and thought it's mobile app was bad but find my past app is just a cheap awful joke!
