The winners of the 2014 APPY Awards were named recently, and we are pleased to announce that the Ancestry mobile app has won the award for the best “Reference App” a second year in a row. The APPY Awards, part of Internet Week New York, honor applications on all platforms and is dedicated to acknowledging creativity and excellence in app design.
Our mobile app features a detailed timeline with narratives, historical context, and media, automatically generated from an ancestor’s life events.
You can also build a family tree through Facebook connections, providing a new way to get started quickly and make discoveries about family genealogy. Underpinning this activity are more than 200-million user-contributed photo and documents, along with 12 million birth, death, military and other records. The Ancestry app puts your family history at your fingertips.
Have you downloaded our mobile app yet? If not, you can do so here and take your family history with you, wherever you go.
Here you will find informational, and sometimes fun, posts from the folks behind the scenes here at Ancestry.com. We hope you’ll notice just how passionate we are about family history and about the products we’re building to help connect families over distance and time.Visit Ancestry.com
