    It works..., kinda. OK for displaying info. Not OK for entering info. The main screen, the pedigree chart, looks like a bad web page from the 1990s. I do find it handy, but it should be a lot better than it is.

    A great app. A little learning was needed and I'm still learning.But it's great to sit with elderly relatives over a coffee and pick their memory and record it right onto my phone. No bulky laptops or napkins . The fonts don't bother me I just want the great mobility I now have .Thanks

    This app is an excellent Android companion to PCs Legacy. Using Families Sync, I had no difficulties in transferring my Legacy files and photos to my BAUHN Android tablet via a USB connection. The end result was great all-be-it a simplified version of Legacy. A great app that makes my family history research very mobile.

    If you use Legacy & a smartphone and/or tablet, then you want this to always have your tree(s) photos, documents et al with you! It will always be the 1st app I install on a new phone or tablet.

    Works better on iPhone text size is too small on Android even on a large screen. All that real estate with tiny tiny letters. Interface is confusing and I often get bumped out the database as a result & have to log back in.

    App has great potential. However, not easy to access additional spouses and families on fgs, hard when you have multiple spouses in a data base of 70,000 plus and you can't remember their names.
