    Great app so far but hoping there wound unexpected mandatory payments because I got a job but can’t pay because I’m only 15 also hoping I can do AncestryDNA because I have no clue what my ancestry is and it’s extremely important to me but I also can’t afford it 😭💯.

    This is a good mobile app. I’m working on a few trees and I just wish it would share the info that’s input easier with my other devices.

    By JWP-ihatethisapp app for iPad is perhaps the best way you can manage your family tree on the iPad. It simply works and works well. Helps you find ancestors you might not find otherwise. Great app!
  • User friendly

    I have enjoyed working on the Ancestry app because there are times when I am not able to be on a computer and using the app allows me do some research even when I only have a few minutes to spare. Thank you.
  • Great app

    Ancestry is a good company, with a good website, and a great app. The Ancestry app is a huge improvement over the website. I may begin using the app as my primary tool to edit and display my family tree.
