Not Good

I expected something like the Ancestry App for IPad. That app allows you to display data in either of two tree formats or a list. It allows some editing of people. The IPad app is incredibly easy to use and facilitates sharing. I have Family Tree Maker, but prefer using the App for Sharing, general browsing, quick searches on Ancestry and looking at Hints. I screwed up when starting my tree on Ancestry by not separating the families and presently have over 4600 individuals. The IPad app allows easy navigating through the tree. This app may help interfacing with Ancestry.com, but seems nothing like the IPad App and mostly, sucks. One Disclaimer. I have just started using the APP, so there may be more to it than I am aware of, but if I don't find something positive, I am deleting the thing.

I hate this app.!!!!!! I've been with Ancestry for years. It was easier to find and see how your family was linked. Now it's hard to follow. Don't need all that colorful graphics. If you could switch to the family tree (the old app.) this would be a better app. Also I can't figure out how to edit or add other family members on it. This app. STINKS. They should fire who ever came up with this idea. I only give it one star, because the rating want let me go any lower.

Not up to Par

I have seen the ancestry app on other platforms and it looks good and seems very functional. With this app to do anything they really direct you to the web site and don't let you do anything here. Pretty Sad App.

Soooo... Where's My Tree?????

I've been using Ancestry for years. I love their product. But, I hate this app. There is no graphic display of my tree. It just gives me an alphabetical listing of the people in my tree. There are too many people with similar names to know who I'm looking at. Sorry Ancestry, but that makes this app totally useless (for me, at least). I think this app may have been prematurely released. I'll go back to my Ipad app for now. Let me know when you get this one cleaned up.

EXTREMELY limited...

App does not function well, limiting users to limited views of information and limited choices of actions that function properly. Couple of examples...cannot view family tree in different view types, home/main page states 116 images in tree and only 10-20 are available to scroll through...

No Value - And that's SAD

This is not an Ancestry.com bashing. I love the work that Ancestry has done over the years. I've grown my tree to over 700. This Windows App is just poor PERIOD If you have access to Android you are better off. The ease of functionality should be the same across all platforms and clearly this not the case If the 1 stars are more than 5 by a good amount take the clue and run. Note: This is meant to be a humble opinion. If I'm missing something let me know.
