MobileFamilyTree Pro and MacFamilyTree 6.1 released

We're proud to annouce a revolutionary product: MobileFamilyTree Pro. Since 2008, we're offering a companion app for MacFamilyTree for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The previous companion app was great to capture data on the go but falls short when comparing to the features found in MacFamilyTree.

MobileFamilyTree Pro is the first full-featured genealogy app for iOS. It is build on the same foundation as MacFamilyTree and offers all charts and reports found in the popular Mac genealogy app. It even uses the same database file format as MacFamilyTree. MobileFamilyTree Pro can be completely used as a stand-alone product, a Mac or PC is no longer required. If you are using a PC or Mac for doing your genealogy research you can exchange data with MobileFamilyTree Pro using the GEDCOM file format.

Like MacFamilyTree, the new app MobileFamilyTree Pro can display a variety of charts like Ancestor charts, Descendant charts, Hourglass charts as well as Kinship reports, Person and Family reports and the Virtual Tree. All charts and reports are directly printable from the iOS device on compatible printers and can be exported as PDF files and send by email to relatives.


Along with MobileFamilyTree Pro we're releasing a major new version of MacFamilyTree. Version 6.1 brings a completely rewritten Kinship report which can even handle the most complex relations easily. Furthermore, a new chart has been added (Double Ancestor chart), the Hourglass chart and Ancestor chart have been vastly improved.

With Version 6.1, a new database file format is introduced which greatly improves application performance and backup speed as well as size when using Apples Time Machine. Merging family trees or single persons has been improved, too. You can now easily find duplicates in your tree and merge them using a simple yet powerful user interface.

Both, MacFamilyTree 6.1 and MobileFamilyTree Pro offer a completely new syncing feature. Previously, you were able to sync your iOS device with your Mac and vice versa. Using the new sync, you can sync multiple Macs and iOS devices with each other to keep all your Macs, iPhones and iPads in sync.
