I give the app three stars because i have a hard time finding a way to edit some mistakes.
Great for finding families but tree building needs improvement 4/5
By And a Bag Of Chips
I have enjoyed finding family. We have been able to find adoptive family members but have to create a new tree for each line. It would be great if you could build one tree that can toggle. Families are complicated but building separate trees is tedious
Much Better 3/5
The upgrade to this app is significant. It is actually user friendly. However, there is still room for improvement. Keep up the good work
Love it. 5/5

Works very well.
Great for on the go. 3/5
Great for on the go, wish it was more line the computer.
Makes uploading pics easier 5/5
Love how easy it is to upload photos from my phone to my tree!
My ancestry 5/5
I have been happy with it.how do you merge them?
App has taken me a long way 5/5
First the app seems to be better than any other apps I've tried. This app and a little additional research of gotten back to original pricing and 1350 near Nottingham England. As others have mentioned it would be interesting to have a map tool that would let you see where ancestors had lived and showed their movement overtime. The app adds some historical events of relevance but it would be nice to pick and choose from other historical events that might have more relevance to your family.
Handy helpful loving it 5/5
Great to have everything at your fingertips. Love it when I travel I don't have to lug a lot of information around. When I'm out visiting family I have my information at my thing or tips.
Great and easy to use! 5/5
For a beginner in genealogy this has been super easy to use! I’ve already found multiple members in my family and the hints are super helpful in filling in the blanks that I’m not sure about.
By True Toe
App is quick and easy to use
Nice app 4/5
Best thing about it is that it gives a second screen. Also being able to use the program anywhere is great. Need a way to permanently eliminate those annoying historical tidbits that appear unbidden in the timeline. I have no interest in that nonsense.
Tidbits are gone hooray!
It’s Good 4/5
It’s a good tool but I don’t like how the want to charge for public records which is free, other than that I like it so far.
Great App!! 5/5
Great way to have the family around! Easy to access and update information on the go.
Great App 5/5
The app makes it much easier to get alerts on new hint about your family tree.
Cannot log in 1/5
By Michael Wells
I cannot log in with my iPad or iPhone using the app. I get a vague error: “Network Error” and “Uh oh. Something went wrong”. Indeed it did. The support link I. App doesn’t work either. So while the desktop site works for me, nothing else does. I’m using iOS 11.0 on an iPhone 7 Plus or on an iPad Pro 10.5.
Great app 5/5
I love to be able to do this on my phone. Great app and website. I truly love this app ❣️
This can get big very fast, know where you want to go! You loose track of time and suddenly hours go by!!
Works great 5/5
App is working great. Easy to use anytime i have free time even when I'm not at home by using my phone. I've found ancestors I didn't know exist. Ancestry.com has increased their online info since I tried ten years ago. I even find pictures of ancestors. Love it!
Where is new search tool? 4/5
Love Ancestry but find that when I want to search a specific name, I must leave my iPhone and use a computer. Please fix.
Ancestry & Family History 5/5
Love the iPhone app! This makes researching on the fly much easier.
5 Stars 5/5
Absolutely love it. It's been a wonderful journey discovering my family and history. I have been able to locate and identify my birth parents with help from new found cousins.
I would highly recommend this to all my friends
Great App 5/5
So wonderful to have everything with you and easy to se!
Love it 5/5
Love being able to access Ancestry on my iPhone. Makes it so easy to share info. with relatives and make changes.
Family History comes alive 4/5
This is a wonderful site with people to support and help you with any issues. Not good with a computer? No worries! It is easy to follow and builds step by step. I use with LDS family tree for my total tree. Enjoy getting to know your history.
Ancestry App 5/5
Great app. Easy to use and makes research much easier and quicker.
Research made possible for anyone, anywhere. From home, no less. Thank you.
Excellent app and genealogy tool! 5/5
Excellent app and genealogy tool!
Love the app but recent errors 4/5
I have used the app for several years & have loved it. But within the past two weeks I am getting an error message frequently. I am not sure if it is tied to a recent update or not. But it has only just started.
You Are Not Authorized to Access This Page
I hope Ancestry can fix this.
So buggy! 1/5
I didn't used to have problems with the apps, so they were my preferred method of Ancestry use. But now, as with most of my web experiences with Ancestry, this stupid app is SO buggy! I can't even log in on the apps on my iPhone or iPad. I can, however, log in on the site so I know my password is correct and that that is not the issue. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the apps. Still didn't work. The website on Safari, too is crap. I tried to reset my password just on the off chance that could somehow help but it won't even let me submit the new passwords because the "save" button does nothing! I had to go into Chrome on my iPad (which worked fine) to get the change to take. Why am I spending so much for this membership if the tools provided to help with my tree don't even work correctly?!
This seems nice but their goal is to scam you out of your money. They don't notify you when payment will be due so that they can make sure you don't stop the subscription. Be carful their goal is to scam you out of your money not provide a genuine service.
Limited functionality 1/5
Limited functionality backed by the same issues plaguing the browser version. Worse yet, the app version has an inconsistent view of broken hints as compared with the browser version. Broken hints are hint records that have no usable link to a record, with no way to clear the hint. The app says there is one such hint, the browser version says the same tree has four.
Searching from the app yields vastly different results, and not all that relevant. Usually have to use the browser version to do any real work with searches.
App does not respect resource limits on a smaller iPad. It uses more and more available memory. Need a way to off load less used portions of a big tree. This hog also seems to fragment memory, so you lose even more available memory than it says it is using. App said it was using over a gig of memory, but after deleting and a memory scan was able to recover over a gig more of wasted space.
I want a portable way to access my Ancestry tree, but this app Seriously Needs Work!
Great App 5/5
Love the app, especially the Hints. I've learned so much about my heritage, wether it be finding new relatives or dismissing rumored ancestral lines.
So far so great!
I have my family back generations 4/5
I have my family marked back to the early 1800s. THIS APP IS AWESOME😀😀😀
This is a really easy to use app. And I love it
Great app! 4/5
By marsha did this
I'm very impressed that I found so much with just a little information. The app has found stuff even I wasn't aware of. Still learning and searching. It's going to take time but I'm ready!
Why do I have to pay for the leaf on ancestors that are mine?
Best app ever. Instead of waisting my time playing phone games I enjoy building my tree. It is a much better use of my time. It is the perfect thing to do whenever I have a bit of spare time.
It does not get better than this! 5/5
I have been with ancestry.com for about 20 years and I love this app!
I'm totally addicted 4/5
This is awesome, and I am so addicted to searching!
Great App 4/5
The Ancestry App is easier to use for many functions than Ancestry.com and Family Tree Maker. But it doesn't show public trees and it doesn't allow combining duplicate persons and many of the other editing functions in those programs. But I use this app before jumping into the other programs when browsing for hints or doing general searches.
So pointless 1/5
System assumes, and leads people thinking they're related to people they're not. You can add people you're not related to on purpose and you'll start getting linked to more people. Truly a pointless company in my opinion
DNA is a rip off!
Very helpful 5/5
It's handy to have on my phone for quick reference.
Ancestry is awesome 5/5
I have learned a ton about family history through ancestry.com...only issue with app is they do not have hints for other family trees that you can access from an actual computer...aside from that it is great
Ancestry Everywhere! 5/5
I use the app on my phone and IPad. It is great. I have my desktop on with Ancestry, the IPad is a check. Or I will use the app to research hints and then later sync the information to my desktop Family Tree Maker. This app is great also for a quick show of family pictures! LOVE IT!
Ancestry app 5/5
Couldn't do without it, handy for quick reference while on computer as well
