  • Pretty dang good, but a little room to improve

    There is no undo feature. I once accidentally deleted someone who just popped up that was a princess... imagine finding you had a princess in your family tree and then accidentally deleting them! Lol
  • Good app

    I like the app I just wish some things were at different places. When there are banners about specials they have it covers the menu up. Also wish the active a kit button wasn’t where it is. Perhaps move it under DNA. I accidentally hit it when pressing another choice.
  • I can do everything!

    Very well thought out app. I can do everything I need to and more quickly than on the main Ancestry website.
  • Dig it

    Very good, not as flexible for editing as FTM, on desktop or laptop but in some ways more useful in saving pictures etc.. Using both with an online tree and Syncing is the best of both worlds.
