Excellent tree app. for my iPhone. Professionally done and is very easy to use. I've never had a problem with it, yet it continues to be updated and improved. Great tech support.😄👏

I recently purchased an ipod touch as a replacement for my aging Palm pilot. I needed a GEDCOM file viewer for my ipod touch. GedView is a very good product and is definitely worth the price. GedView would be much improved if it had the ability to search by events (e.g. burials) and if it could also list births, deaths, and marriages for a given date and had a relationship calculator. It would be cool to see these features added to a future version of GedView. Thank you for adding the “On This Day” feature. It would help if the names were easier to read with larger font and better color. It would really be neat if you created an “On This Day” widget for this app. Thank you for considering.

Upgrade? Update? Huh?

I've had this app for years. After updating it today, I can't open a file saved earlier without responding to a popup message which refers to needing an "upgrade" also referred to as an "update." Both terms are used. Neither is defined or explained, and it isn't clear whether they're just referring to updating a file, or charging for an "upgrade" to the app, so I deleted the app. It never was that good anyway.

Super easy

Just purchased this app and can't believe how easy it was to get my data uploaded. Very intuitive. The interface is great - simple to navigate and find what I want. Also love that it will display a fajita group sheet.

I have used this for 5 years. Originally it was just a viewer, but extremely handy to have my family history information with me all the time. It does a lot more now, including being able to add information. Those who rated it low must not understand what it is for, and failed to take the time to figure it out. Their loss.

Save your money

Not a great app. Not very easy to navigate through. I thought I put in my immediate family. Then I put in my mother's parents and tried to find my mom to link to and it had lost my immediate family info. Also, the categories are not very clear. It just lists date, but no indication if it's birthdate, date of marriage, or education levels. Over all I find it unreliable and not user friendly.

I'm impressed!

Great program! Importing my gedcoms couldn't have easier! It includes all the features necessary for research. I can't imagine anyone rating this less than 4 stars! The best family tree app I've seen!

Excellent App

37 Cord's Review of Gedview

This is a high performing family history mobile software, that is much more than a viewer. I converted a FTM 2006 version 16 file running on Windows XP to a GED format, and transferred it to an iPAD 2 wireless via a Windows 7 based wireless laptop. This used the "upload to device" wireless server method built into GedView. No problems. My file is a text only format with a large number of notes, and it all transferred. GedView appears to have all of the editing/revision tools that would be needed to maintain a working family history. I have only taken a quick look at the family tree graphs, and the traditional genealogical display seems limited to a "pedigree" chart, and this is generation limited. This is noted in the user manual as having a memory constrained limit. Perhaps an iPad is less memory constrained than some of the other portable devices, and could have a more graphic features version. Thanks for this great app and its very reasonable pricing.

Great genealogy app

PABrown-Massachusetts's Review of Gedview

I want to refute the low scores that some customers have given. I have been using this app for almost a year and it has worked very well. I am running it on a 2nd Gen iPod Touch. I have been doing genealogy research for about 45 years and it is a real help for me to have a mobile capability like this. I keep my primary databases on Personal Ancestry File (PAF) and the GEDCOM files that it generates are opened correctly by this app. I am pleased, and the price is great. I wrote directly to the developer with a suggestion for an enhancement regarding display of GEDCOM Sources and was pleasantly surprised when he responded with thanks the next day. I give it five stars for functional value for the price.
