A brilliant tree reader I use Family Historian tree program which uses .ged as it's file format (therefore no exporting needed). It's works brilliantly in the app and is great if u need a quick ref on the move. I tried using the Ancestry app but it's too processor heavy and was eating my battery power even when not using it.
Basic and limited As is acknowledged on the site, this program is liable to crash and fail to load with files of any size. I got 2/3 the way through loading my 14Mb file (3,000 people) when it disappeared. Loading a smaller file, shows the program to be basic in what it shows. So far as I could see, events and attributes ignore addresses and notes. Since I make extensive use of both, this means it's useless. Person-level notes appear up to a limit, after which they are truncated. Full marks for actually showing a custom event - none for not showing what sort of event it is. If you use GEDCOM to any degree of sophistication, this program will be useless to you.
Won't open Brothers Keeper gedcoms Might be OK but my BK GEDCOMS fail loading part way through, work fine in other programs.
Underated As a serious family historian, I find this app very useful for quick reference and sharing my Ancestry GEDCOM file with family members - Galaxy Nexus phone & 10.1 tablet.
Does what the Title suggests. My requirement was for an App that read and displayed the contents of a GedCom genealogy file. This App readily meets that need and displays my 3Mbyte Gedcom file containing 3500 individuals easily on my Moto g phone. The file was created by Family Historian, which uses the Gedcom format as its native file format, as mentioned by an earlier reviewer. Gedcom files are structured plain text files and if this App will not display them, they are probably incorrectly formatted.
Not bad. Works well. Worked fine for me. No problems. Able to access all data easily. Gets the job done and free.
