I had an Android OS phone for years and used the Ancestry and Family Bee apps, both which are very good. Made the switch to a Windows OS phone and love it more than Android. But I discovered that neither Ancestry nor the Family Bee apps had made the transition. Found this app and decided to give it a try. I don't have a single complaint with this app. If your into genealogy and have a GEDCOM file then this is a must have app. Its very well done. My wish list for this app is to be able to edit and add.

Relative History

I havnt tried this app yet but I like things that are easy to figure out and do. So I'm hoping this app isn't to complicated!😀

Editing subscription has expired

The approximately 0.3 trillionths of a second between installation and the warning about your subscription expiring doesn't give me much confidence for the rest of the program's operations. Addendum: truly a stupendously useless application. Slow, ineffective and having not one useful feature for the job it is presumably designed to do.

I am sorry to see that you are unhappy with the app. The editing subscription is currently free and should last for 3 months between activations. If you are not experiencing this, I would welcome the opportunity to work with you to fix this and any other problems you are having with the app.

Easy to import your GED file. Makes it available mobile. Wish it could handle more notes. But having your genealogy mobile is a great app.

Sloppy Navigation, Not user friendly

Can only see 1 branch at a time, no "help" button, no explanation on how to use. Needs user friendly ways to connect pics or files with individual ancestor. Buttons that are visible are not clear on what they do. "import" gives error that there is nothing associated. Don't even know what that means.

One great thing about this app is that it displays maps with directions to sites in your Genealogy gedcom file. I've tested it both with US and UK data; and it pulls up correct maps equally well in either country. Sources are included in the app also; which is handy when you're at a repository, and the capability is there to drill down to additional detail regarding the Source. You can also list the people who are covered by each source. All in all, I'm thrilled with the app, as I can finally have my genealogy data available on my Windows phone.

Awesome! I have a database of over 1900 families, all descendants of my fourth great-grandfather. Now I can take this information with me everywhere. Awesome app.

Overall, my experience with this app has been a very good one and I feel positive that my use of it will only get better as new and improved versions of this app are released. But what I've enjoyed most has been the excellent product support I've received from its developer whenever there were problems with this app. So THANK YOU Papillon Productions for making Genealogy-on-the-GO possible for Windows Phone users!

Slow and crashes, utter rubbish.

Papillon Productions responded on 11/9/2015

I am sorry that you are unhappy with the app. I can see from the developer reports that Microsoft supplies that the app does seem to be unstable under Windows 10, although nobody has contacted me directly about this. I will start to investigate further to see why this might be happening.

Don't know if it works; need to be able to load from gedcom file on my SD card, but it only allows from SkyDrive. Developer: Please allow loading from device files as well. Thanks.
