    It doesn't recognise gedcom files exported from Family Historian, even when exported in strict Gedcom format.

    An older version could not load my gedcom file but that is fixed now. Gives a good summary of ancestors, descendants, and events, for each person, but omits some details. No graphical tree representations, only text. I have not tried the note taking feature.

    Installed on 30-10-2013, just realised it must be the new release. It seems to work well on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8, I imported a GedCom from Family Tree Maker without any problems. As yet I have not fully explored the app but as it lacks tree diagrams the result is a very clean listing display with each name acting as a hot link to their details. I'm not sure if I can add people and relationship

    Will not load a gedcom and says it is not the right format. However, it works in other applications.
