So Limited - No Tree

This app is laid out in a horrible way. There is very limited capability compared to the web site or the original application. There is NO WAY to actually visualize a family tree.

Great Website

This is a App that allows a taste of what is available on the website, which was never FREE for full membership privileges, but I found most of my family info using the FREE portion until I was able or willing to pay. Four Stars easily.

Hard to navigate

Have trouble figuring out how to save, if it is saved, how to make corrections, etc. Just general getting around and keeping track of where I've been.

What's the point of using the app if whenever you click on a something, you are redirected to the website. It completely defeats the purpose of the app. Also the limited functionality doesn't even work. The tree never even loaded. Deleting immediately!!!!

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.

Seems Clunkier than the website in XP

Hard to navigate and understand. The trees only come up in the website, not on the app??? So you can browse all the work you did....on tiles. SO WHAAAAAT!!! Doesn't really do anything. Wondering if it's just working oddly with WIndows 8.1.
