MacFamilyTree 8 introduces the brand new CloudTree - for the first time it's possible to work with an unlimited number of persons and devices on the same family tree. All changes are synced within seconds so everything you enter is immediately available on every other device. The only thing required is MacFamilyTree 8 or MobileFamilyTree 8 on macOS 10.12 (or higher) or iOS 10 (or higher) on all participant’s Macs, iPhones oder iPads.
One family tree, multiple devices, multiple users
Invite other users to work on the same family tree with you. Any changes will be synchronized and available on other users' devices in a matter of seconds. Looking at the change history, you'll be able to quickly identify which changes were made by which user. If you prefer, you can make your family tree available as a read-only version instead. Sync with other iCloud users is currently restricted to 5000 entries per "entry type". An entry type can be a person, a family, a place, a note, etc. You may sync 5000 entries for EACH of these types
Only you decide what happens to your data
Apple is known for its high data protection standards. MacFamilyTree's CloudTree Sync feature operates under the same strict standards. Access to your family tree is restricted to yourself and only you decide who gets to see your data. Other people will only be able to view your family tree if you've sent them an invitation.
Sync via CloudTree - and still have all your information stored locally
Although all entries are synced via CloudTree, all your information is still available locally on your Mac, iPhone or iPad, allowing you to continue your genealogical research when your device is offline. CloudTree will automatically sync any changes once you reconnect to the internet.
Sync via iCloud Drive - for older Macs and iOS devices
On older Macs and iOS devices, iCloud Drive can be used to synchronise your family tree between your devices. Sharing your family tree is only supported using Cloud Tree, which requires macOS 10.12 Sierra, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, iOS 10 or iOS 11 to work.
