No access to messages 4/5
Decent app but does not offer full access to mailbox.
Love it on my phone. So handy & I have gathered new family information.
Love it! 5/5
I try to update my tree often. However, my favorite aspect is accessing it when discussing family history. Additionally, the updates on census records is fascinating.

I have been on Ancestry.com for a few years now but I just now discovered the app. WOW is all I can say. This is so addictive. I can view the original documents through the app. This just makes it so much easier to keep my hands in it all the time.
This app isn't very good it keeps freezing! The app freezes and won't unfreeze! Please fix this problem
Great app! 5/5
Can see all my ancestry info on my phone!
Great APP!!! 5/5
The ancestry app is a convenient way to look up ancestors at home and on the go. It's the best way to build up your family tree and share with others.
A money pit-trap 1/5
You can sign up through the app but you cannot cancel through the app. You have to call to cancel and wait on hold... a lot.
I signed up for this and then did the DNA test. The app wasn't very good. My cousin said you need to log on through a PC for it to work optimally. Then the 19.99 charges started through iTunes. First I called ancestry and after 15 min on hold they told me I had to call apple/iTunes to cancel. I'm currently on hold now. The first gentlemen I spoke to was polite but he cannot help me so I wait... on hold...I wrote and proof read rewrote this all while on hold... still holding... 20min. Altogether more than 30 minutes and still holding. I could not find anywhere in the app call tunes to cancel. Ridicules... Over 30min now. So 55min of my life but they showed me how to cancel through iTunes. Do not follow ancestry's instructions. Go into settings click on app/iTunes tap your account name scroll down to subscriptions tap on the ancestry subscription and tap "cancel".
This is a very helpful site to start your Family Tree !!!!!!!!

My first hint was such a thrill so worth the world wide purchase
Great app 5/5
I really have enjoyed accessing the large data collections of my family over the last 3-4 hundred years. They are adding additional information every year, I have been on the app for a long time and it just get better with time.
Great App 5/5
Love this App!
Only missing feature 4/5
I wish I had the ability to check messages on here.
Great app 5/5
Very cool finding out about my family history. Putting together the pieces of the pie. Really like it
Easy to Use 5/5
I've been able to create a Family Tree in a few months with the DNA information that took my mother over 50 years to create. However, I do want to emphasize I could only do this because I have my mother's thousands of hours of research to confirm my tree by. But, the Hints feature and distance cousins that have contacted me make this App great.
Great app! Finding family members is wonderful!
Ancestry.com is great 5/5
I have used ancestry.com for several years now, and have been very happy with it. It's a great way to save existing research data to refer back to. Paying for the opportunity to research and view census records and birth records is awesome but the price is a little high.
So handy 5/5
This is an application that I actually use on a regular basis. At a family get-together and can't remember that 3rd cousin? Just pull out your phone and tap the app!
Almost awesome! 4/5
It takes a lot of work & patience to properly research ones ancestors will proper documentation. I love it and this app lets me do it anywhere! Unfortunately, there are still some easy-to-add/crucial functions that the app lacks that are available on the desktop version. The main one being a way to quickly/ easily/ efficiently remove duplicates of people. This creates such a huge problem that I find I spend way too much time later undoing. Please add this function!
Another helpful (easy) function would be to leave my current "person"up in a window (with their stats & info) as I peruse a new source doc. I can't tell you how many times I have to bounce out of a doc to check if it really is a fit.
On the app I'd also like to fix erroneous source transcriptions like misspelled names and add missing facts. I hate that there are important facts in a source that don't show up in the html text "add to your tree" section. An easy personal notes section would be also too.
Last thing (for now!), please tell me when I already have a doc used in my sources.
But I love this app! Please keep making it easier & easier for us to do this wonderful/important work.

I love it!
Great app but there are sum glitches 4/5
Nothing under the DNA tab will work. Everything else is easy to use and works fine.
I've been doing genealogy research for 20 yrs. And using this app since it came out. The 7.2 version has introduced a full-page view of the Individual's Chronology - family history. I liked it better when that file opened on the right side of my iPad screen, and could be reckoned with the swipe of my finger. Please bring that option back to the iPad version of this app.
Best non-game app ever! 5/5
History is now very interesting - since it is MY history. I have found Revolutionary War heroes, Minute Men, Quakers, an ancestor who fought in (and died in) the War of 1812. The ancestry.com app is the best thing ever. Doing my family tree with this app has made it possible to permanently establish the tree AND SEE and ATTACH the records that prove it. All from home on my iPad. Others in my Families(Mother's side, Father's side) have done family trees but unless you have their paper copies, you can't see it for yourself. Now I can leave this information to my children and grandchildren and future generations. This app is the best, easy to use app ever!!
A wonderful way to find your history 5/5
I have used this app for five years on iPhones, iPads and computers. I never had to start over or begin a "new tree" because you log in and you information is secure. I love this app for several reasons the first being I have learned so much about the heroes in my family. I can see the struggles, how wars have affected family members. I found living relatives I never knew. The only problem I have is that duplicates still form too easily but the correction process was simplified. Every update has made corrections easier to do. You can add pictures, obits notes and they automatically add historical facts to make your ancestors come to life. Warning though this can be addictive! Lol
Good app 5/5
Good app keep going

Great app 5/5
Perfect addition to the website. I can check my facts when I tell them how great ancestry.com is in helping me stay my history is.
Easy to use 5/5
Quite easy to manage
Love it! 5/5
Great app. Allows mw to continue to update my family tree even when i am away from my computer.
Why is this app so limited. The limited mobile webpage is better. But why the limitations.
Also your recent policy crippling the ability to manage multiple DNA tests is disappointing but given your history with horrible customer service it is not surprising. I would not recommend using ancestry for DNA. They brag larger database, but it's mostly fake accounts they are encouraging users to make. They are way behind on features and testing accuracy.
Very interesting 5/5
It was captivating using this app to learn about my family
Easy to use! 5/5
Dear lord this is easy to use. Put in what you know, wait for hints. See if hints correspond. That simple.

At one's fingertips.... 5/5
While I still prefer working on the computer, the app is most useful when I want to do some research and I am not on my computer. It is also most handy when I want to show details to others, like grandchildren!
I purchased my DNA test and haven't received the results yet but my dad did. I've found photos of my great grandparents right off the bat and all kinds of other information.
I'm going to become a member soon to see what else I can find.
Love taking my Family with me! 5/5
This app just keeps getting better! Thanks to all the employees and also all the volunteers who work on more and more indexing! At a recent family reunion I found myself looking up facts about ancestors for my family that hasn't been bitten by the genealogy bug. What a great tool. Thank you!
Family Tree 4/5
Love love this app and the info I've found. My only 2 complaints are: 1) the hints info are easier to read than on the app. (Example) on several occasions I've came across a census with part of my family on one page and the rest of the family on next page but in the app you can only see that page. 2) no place to put that twins was born. (Example) my grandfather is a twin his family clearly ran out of names because the twins name was Lloyd and Floyd with same middle names I'm having a hard time keeping ancestry from changing names. I still love the app.
Great for On the Go 5/5
I love the app for using when I'm on the go and can't access the full program on my computer.
The app is easier to use with each update!!!
Very Enjoyable! 5/5

Easy and fun!
Easy to use 4/5
If you are accustom to the regular desktop app this will be a breeze. I like the way it compares data from the new suggested data to that of your current data it makes it easy to distinguish what is a match. The down side is not being able to clean up duplicate entries and it is difficult to remove documents. I also miss combining duplicate people entries. I can easily do this from my desktop program. I am very please overall.
Great app I love it.
Very useful app 5/5
I just got this app this afternoon, and I can't stop using it! It's very intuitive and easy to use. Definitely recommend to anyone who is trying to research their family history.
Great time saver 5/5
By Aloha Danny
Can be a fast way to add additional sources but it's easy to make mistakes compared to using multiple browsers on a computer.
I love it, it helps me learn so much about my family history
