  • Excellent App!!!!!

    By KraftyKreator
    I LOVE this App! It is very user friendly when compared to other apps, offers more features as well. I tried several other ones and decided to stick with Ancestry. I have been using it for quite some time now and love it! I have purchased the largest package that includes all the features and it is so well worth it. I have been able to go back to the 1300's in some areas on the family and even the 1100's in others! I am extremely pleased with this app!!

    Provides wonderful update that leads to clearer vision into your heritage.
  • Impossible to use in iOS 12

    By MindieKaye
    Impossible to use in iOS 12. Every tap of a key takes about five seconds to register, so it takes minutes to enter something as simple as a name. Also, if you enter a new person- say, a parent or spouse of a person on your tree- the new person doesn’t show up on the tree. If you try to enter them again, you can see that the original entry “worked,” because that new person is suggested, but the entry doesn’t show up on the tree (this was happening even before the iOS 12 update). I use this app literally every single day, and I’ll never ever understand how an entity as enormous as Ancestry has SO MUCH TROUBLE making an app that works well. We spend a LOT of money for your service. We should be able to use it conveniently on the app. All of my other apps work great. This is the only one that is constantly buggy, and it’s the only service I pay this kind of money for. It’s so frustrating.
