Wouldn’t it be great to be able to view and merge’s “shaky leaf” record hints into your family tree directly on your iPhone, iPad or iPod?  We thought so, too.

Today, we announced the availability of an enhanced version 3 of our iPhone, iPad and iPod app, Ancestry, that now offers several new features:

  • Ability to access’s “shaky leaf” hints for new discoveries of historical records about your ancestors directly in the app
  • Merge functionality that identifies and extracts information about family members from historical records to help you grow your tree
  • In-app purchasing, allowing non-subscribers to access record hints without a subscription
  • Improved ability to add information to photos
  • Ability to easily change your family tree privacy settings
  • A more stable app with better performance

Don’t have an Apple iOS device?  Don’t worry, our Android app is in beta testing and will be available in late December for download.

For more information, or to download the app, visit the App Store.

Would like to have an option to switch the view to ‘family’ in addition to the pedigree view.

Please could you also consider a version of this for Windows Phone 7? Now that Nokia have released phones with this OS on it, this OS is going to be growing in popularity, and it will be great to have this app on this one as well. Thanks.
