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.
Klunky So much wrong. Selecting family then search takes you to individuals. From individuals can't navigate tree. Most data fields labeled custom so viewing data is all mixed up and not chronological or grouped correctly. No easy way to display tree view.
Hmm I suspect it only works with smallish databases.. anything serious (5000+) fails to load. Also a graphical pedigree display, even if only 3 gens, would be nice.
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.
Force close issues It successfully imports my gedcom file but program force closes when I click on individuals. None of my 200 entries have last names because of the nature of the south Asian naming scheme. Could this be the problem?
Nice A nice start! Mine crashes when touching "individuals" icon, but maybe my file is too large. Looking forward to improvements! SGS2
