The app is lacking significantly compared to the website. Hints appear and disappear seemingly at will. The tree view has been in "beta" for way too long and continuously shows nothing but an "unknown" blank profile. There is no way to navigate to a known person. You can modify but the functionality is severely limited. Overall, it is not particularly useful as it is right now and pales compared to other genealogical storage apps and even to the FMP website! Please make this app useful!

Very limited app. Heavily dependent on browser. Useful to see hints and person count however no way to view tree or hide hints for later viewing. Hint list always goes back to the beginning so if you are halfway through 700 hints, you must scroll down the list repeatedly. No way to undo a merged hint. From Family, you can view limited relations but cannot go to them from this view. Glad the app is here, cannot wait for version 10 for the functionality that is useful.

EDIT - The logging in problem below has been fixed, so I am able to log in now (thank you to the developer) so I have upgraded from 1 star to 3 stars and would give more if there were more filtering options when searching. I have no problem logging in using a browser to connect to the website, but have never been able to log in using the app with the same username and password......
