Works fine most the time. How can I un-crash it after it has crashed? Is there anything I can do? I did find on my own to use the settings app for the android to clear all databases on RootsMagic app. Now it's working great! Thank you for providing a way to take the family records with you when one goes out on the field and does research.
Still needs to fix display issues Despite releasing a new version this app (1.2) is a disaster zone. Clearly not tested as screens still do not fit the display. The list display screen layouts need redesigning as the selection area is also totally off the bottom of the screen. Screens and fonts are not resizeable so whilst it looks good the app really cannot be used.
Good start Gorgeous! Not ready for mobile prime time. Crashes my Tab3 10.1 tablet often. Extremely slow for every action. Virtually impossible to edit anything. This is my favorite pc app. Too bad I can't have the same on my tablet. Will look elsewhere for now. Hope the devs will keep at it.
Good. May 7, 2015: My original review in July 2014 said RM was nearly useless because of tiny print, and unreliability. On my old Galaxy S3 (KitKat), it often only started after several retries. On my Galaxy Note 4 (Lollipop): RM installed, linked w/Dropbox, loaded local database, then stopped. UPDATE: it now works fine! Thank you!
Fast and simple I found this app simple to use, fast and efficient. The Dropbox syncing works well. It is only a viewer - you can only create and edit family trees on your desktop - this app is just for looking at them.
I like the Rootsmagic Software. I am doing autosomal DNA match research by creating individual trees for each match. I counted on being able to work on this project at my sister's house for Thanksgiving. It is not possible to CREATE a family tree. It may not be possible to add people to an exiting tree. Only button I could find is "edit". No toolbars, no menus. This app may be mostly for showing your trees to family! There are people who do all of their genealogical research using a tablet; obviously they are not using this app. Last, but hardly least, this app won't work except through Dropbox and you HAVE to link the app to Dropbox. Dropbox is the most dangerous, not to mention, the most useless, service, ever invented. Decide you don't want to store any given file or folder on ANY device, or on Dropbox itself, and it auto-deletes from ALL your devices! Legacy Family Tree has an app that allegedly is actually funcitonal. You can create trees, and you can sync through USB if you want to, just for starters. I prefer Rootsmagic, I find it much easier to use, but the fact that I can't use it on a tablet will definitely shape my choices of genealogical software.
The ability to delete files that have been downloaded from Dropbox to the device.
