App is great, support team struggles. It's church service missionaries that aren't very technical. I had the "no capable browser" issue. They tried to help but just couldn't figure it out. I fixed it by changing the default browser in Android back to Chrome. I had it defaulted to DuckDuckGo. App dev team should fix this by invoking a capable browser.

LOVE THE SITE, NOT THE APP! I've been trying to use this app for several months. I get notifications of birthdays and things, but when I open the app to see them, it only shows the old notifications from months ago. I get the spinning wheel and it never changes. I even left the app open for 20 minutes to see if that would change. It did not. I decided to just delete it and add bookmark to my Home Screen of the website with text notifications. Just wished that the app would have worked.

It is a great option for working on your family tree from anywhere right on your phone. But the download doesn't work, it doesn't give enough options if name at beginning isn't same as who you want to connect to the source and even when the names of family members are already listed it only connects to a few and wants you to click and place the other names from source only that doesn't work properly as it is almost impossible to do. But all in all it is a good app to have.
