Problem is remote cemeteries and churches seldom have wifi- the only way to use the app from an itouch. Would love to see this app for blackberry bold!

I LOVE apps on my iPhone. I downloaded the app, but cannot open my tree. I have 4200 names in my tree. Maybe it can not handle large trees?

I have over 5000 people in my tree. If there was a way you could specify how many generations are downloaded to keep the tree smaller like you can when viewing Family Tree Maker files this would help those of us with larger trees. Mine gets almost loaded then the app closes. I would love to have current generations at least thru 3rd or 4th great grandparents to be able to download maybe a couple of more if possible. I have the IPod Touch. IT is a good idea and I expect we will see more updates in the future.

If I needed to access the data off a web page, which is basically all the program is doing, I’d be using my own web page, not Ancestry.

My page is designed for PC’s OR iPhones & uses a lot less data on the iPhone version.

There is room for a paid version that:

1. Does not need ancestry access as I dont want to place my tree on there

2. Stores the data on the phone (Slow or no phone reception is common in Australian country towns). Even if there is just a note to say “Pic of person, Pic of grave” rather than needing to store them in there.

3. Syncs with FTM on return. I.e. if I go out and get more info on a family line, plugging in the phone on my return should give me the option to update my tree with the new or ammended data. Thats the big thing for me – basically an iPhone version of FTM without the bells & whistles.

4. Support for REAL size family trees.

Download it directly from iTunes here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ancestry-com-tree-to-go/id349554263?mt=8

The first time I signed on it went perfectly. The second time I received the message “This is a temporary problem….. I only have 530 people on the tree so the tree is not overly large.

I am so pleased to have the information to take with me. Recording information will be so much easier once the bugs are worked out of the app. Thanks a bunch to both Ancestry and Apple!!

love this…but need it to work consistently, and i am apparently at the point where sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. (3000+) i am testing the app for some of my friends…and we are all very anxious! thanks!
