The Ancestry app is excellent 5/5
This app is outstanding and I can view and share my tree on or off the grid.
Don't understand this app at all 1/5
If I could give minus star I would. Are use ancestry.com all the time and have no idea how this app works. There is a force to "tree" which I could care less about, and it has some person I don't know as the main person in a tree that it won't let me delete. There is no search capability, which for me is the entire point of ancestry. If you try to search people it tells you they're not related to whoever the strange person is in the tree. LOL and since you have no idea who that is it just tells you there are no results on the search because they can't find The person you're searching on to be connected to that person in the tree (Who it won't let me delete and I could care less about and don't know)
How do you just use this to search for people? How do you delete the one last person in a tree if you don't want to tree?
Easy version to carry around 4/5
The mobile version isn’t as thorough as the full version, but it’s easy to use and nice visually. It’s been fun to whip out the app to show family members our tree.
Ancestry App 5/5
By Edna Barney
It is amazing! My family tree at my fingertips.
Making connections 5/5
Being a member of Ancestry.com has been fun. I’ve found a second cousin who used to go to visit my grandmother. That is so cool. I want to meet more relatives, if possible. It’s such a challenge to try to research without a program like Ancestry. I really enjoy it.
Ancestry app for cell phone 4/5
Most things are good and some even better than PC version BUT searching for names with place and dates that I already have never seem to go well. I end up with dates that are sometimes decades off and names that are not even remotely close to the spelling I was searching for! That has not improved in all the years I have been a member. And of course that is most important of all. I also wish Ancestry had an index of all the research areas because without it I know I am missing out on many research materials that you have to offer. If you have an index I would appreciate instructions as to how I might locate it.
Great App! Rcrowe49 5/5
User friendly! I love the way it will Sync everything I work on to all my devices. I use my Cell Phone, my iPad and my Laptop. There's never any problem with all my information syncing between all three. That's a giant plus in my book. I also enjoy all the green leaf hints and it's so easy to make a comparison to check everything.
I never knew who my great great grandparents were before this...fascinating.
Great for sharing and to grab a few minutes to look up relatives. Not for hours of work but helpful.
It is worth the upgrade but I wish the world was a little cheaper 4/5
Love to use.
I have found the dna ancestry part a little difficult to navigate.
Love the iPad version! 5/5
This iPad update is the bomb!
Ancesty mobile 5/5
I enjoy being able to work on my tree when I'm in the hospital. Work seamlessly with Ancestry on my computer. Thanks for your hard work, .I surely appreciate it.
Amazing app. Recommend
This a fairly easy app tonight we and it contains links to tons of info.
Great app! 5/5
Handy lookup 4/5
Family tree discussions often have questions about dates and facts - I refer to this app often for that reason.
Not same as laptop screen 3/5
By Barb lam
Just started using it and am stymied by inability to do a search. I just get hints for people in my tree already. Hoping to figure out more for using on my ipad
Family Tree 5/5
Enjoying putting my family tree together and seeing where it leads.
Love It! 5/5
I’ve enjoyed Ancestry the last several weeks. I’ve discovered many people on my father’s side of the family that I would never have known about. 👍🏻👍🏻 Two thumbs up, Ancestry!
Just love it 5/5
Can’t afford a genealogist so this is perfect...
By My Famliy
This a direct move to my family tree on Ancestry and I really enjoy being able to share my posts to family and friends. It's also easy to get to my DNA results and show them to my family. The app is really great.
Bad app got worst 1/5
No way to export matches.
No way to filter New Hints.
No way to know how many matches I have.
No way to know how many new Hints I have.
No way to filter out Private trees.
No way to filter out empty trees.
No way to select Viewed from the match page.
No way to deselect details in match page.
Not way to set how many matches to show per page.
Spend some money developing a better app and less on Ethnicity Estimation. Don’t tell me to open a help ticket since developers never look at the suggestions made.
Gave Me The Edge To So
Many Folks and Relatives
I Did Know I Even Had In
My Past. They Spelled My
Name Correctly As Well.
Better than not having it. 4/5
Needs email notification icon and capability.
Good Updates 4/5
Only complaint is that I am having problems searching. Cannot Fink that page
Great Family Tracker 5/5
We’ve been using ancestry for over 10 years and it just keeps getting better.
A Fan FOR SURE 4/5
Am involved nearly every day with trying to connect my family to the old country. . .still working on it. This ap is a little slow with a large tree like my own (20,000 people). But still love it.
Easy and convenient 5/5
Great way to do family history instead of getting on social media on my phone!!
Much better 5/5
By Babs61 47
I had used Ancestry to trace my family tree 15 years ago and found it to be a head spinning experience. Keeping track of information as it became ever more convoluted was difficult. With the app all the data collected is retained in one place and the timeline stories really help me to retain what I have discovered.
Slow with obtuse interface 2/5
Not an app to do research, but just to view your family tree. Interface is not intuitive, emphasis on hints is overwhelming, plus clumsy navigation. I could just go on.
Ed. Nov 2017.: latest iteration removes all edit capabilities. Again, still best only for displaying trees. Must continue to use browser interface (which is OK) for data entry and editing.
I love family history 5/5
I really like this app. It is very helpful
Love it 5/5
Much help, and a lot of resources. Easy and quick ❤️👍 I’ve found so many families thanks to this app.
I am so grateful for it!!!
Great tool 5/5
This is the best app for family history on the go
Useful and fun to use 4/5
This app has improved quite a bit since I first used it, keep up the good work.
No longer works 2/5
Since the recent update it will no longer even open on my iPhone App. It crashes and closes every time. Prior to the recent "update", I would have given it a 3.5 rating.
Surprise Results! 5/5
I honestly can’t believe I never thought of this before. I’m adopted and never could successfully find my biological mother. With AncestryDNA all I did was order the kit, submit my dna, and BOOM. Matched me with my bio mom!! It’s unbelievable how much I’ve learned about my biological family and cannot put into words how blessed I am. Thank you for this experience.
I love Ancestry 5/5

I love Ancestry because it really helps you learn about your family tree.
Easy to use on tablets 4/5

Great to use on tablets
Very cool app 5/5
By BAA in Chicago
After seeing my family members do a lot of research, it was very nice to see it all organized and easy to use.
Where’s the single record purchase 3/5
I have a love/ hate relationship with this site. I love finding my ancestors when I can but it has been difficult at best. Some records I paid for that I couldn't view beforehand turned out to be trash. I wish they had more options for searches. Some names get duplicated if you are not careful. I used to be able to pay for a single record but they have taken away this option. I would rather pay for a single record than a 6 month subscription. I have written to them and they said they would look into it. And they replied I'm sorry but they have changed things.
Great App! 5/5
I can navigate the app far easier than the website.
Great app! But wish we didn’t have to pay for every little piece of information.
Ancestry has been updated and works great 5/5
New updated and I love it.
Love it 4/5
Can’t do everything the website does but it’s great to have.
By Social nut
Love new app still a little hard to navigate but better than before
Family tree 3/5
This app has helped by showing documents that I have never seen before. My problem with it is that it gives incorrect relationships that I have been unable to correct.
By C H Burgin
Ancestry continues to give names to my growing family. Very helpful in finding unknown family members. Easy to communicate with others and share data.
Great for research 5/5
You will be surprise what you can find about your family history. Easy to use it practically do all the research for you
