I am a die-hard iPad user and i really want this app to work. I don't know yet because every time I try to open it it just flashes back to the main screen. I am on the go researching and I can't utilize this great technology. I hope it is fixed soon as this app has so much potential.

Nice first effort!

Thank you. Now when I go to families gatherings, I can immediately enter information into our Legacy database and transfer it to my computer. The transfer from my computer to my iPad went smoothly. Directions are clear and the actual transfer of information for over 1700 individuals and more than 200 families took a nanosecond. I'm sure there will be many updates to this program in the future, but for now it serves my purposes perfectly.

Worth the wait!!

This app is fantastic! I have been waiting for an app where I could have ALL of my genealogy info with me on a research trip. The ability to have all of your attached media and sources with you is my favorite feature. Other apps that import gedcoms are good, but they don't always import all of your info. This is like having Legacy with me all the time. Definitely worth the price! Thank you! Can't wait to use it on a research trip!

So far so good

Downloaded the app and the computer end software, synced over wifi and had my tree, photos, notes and such in a matter of minutes. (About 10,000 ancestors)

I purchased the day it first came out. Once the RIN issue was fixed for the most part it's been smooth writing. This is the most I've spent for any app and it was worth it. I love the fact that I can sync my work directly with Legacy...two great additions would be bookmarks and a generic report.

Worst app I've used

The app has been updated to include lots of information extracted from my Legacy Family Tree but the problem is that it is the absolutely most cumbersome, convoluted transfer process I've ever had the misfortune to use. It literally, if all goes well, takes an hour or more to do a simply sync because there is nothing simple about "Families." Why a company as terrific as Legacy would use this app for their iOS mobile customers is beyond comprehension. Today has been 100% wasted on trying to get the program to sync, with the result that I have had to dump it from my iPhone. How does one write Negative Stars? They don't deserve even one. It is worse than "I hate it." It has wasted too many precious hours/days trying to work the app.

Disappointed - Doesn't really sync (but there is a workaround)

Doesn't really sync like Evernote, calendar, notes, nook and others do, automatically reflecting changes made on one platform on the other - just transfers files that might as well be gedcom to and from free genealogy app, as some reviewers suggest. I suspect some reviews are by the reprogrammer, who charges too much for this app. From a Legacy webinar I learned that Legacy has an Intellishare feature that can be used to merge two files that use the same identifier for each record. In particular these can be the Legacy file and a file of a different name transferred back from the phone. I don't know how automatic the merge is, though, and it certainly is not as straight forward as with the other apps I mentioned above. However it does offer a way to cope with the deficiency I mentioned. It would be great if a true sync could be added, perhaps using Intellishare as a basis.

Transferred One Million Name database!!!

This is a great app. I've got a huge genealogy database that transferred perfectly to my iPad - everything seems to be there: events, notes etc I'm delighted. If you use Legacy software, you need this app (and NO I'm not affiliated with either developer)
