I looked at different apps before deciding on MacFamily Tree - the graphs, reports and charts looked interesting so decided to buy it. I've two relatives who sent me their ancestry files - in less than a minute I imported the data! I'm blown away by how fast it is, and how superb and detailed the reports are.

This app is worth its weight in gold just for the photo colorizing feature! The reports are incredibly useful if you like to keep a paper trail of your work. When traveling to visit family in Europe, it has been nice to have an offline version of the family tree to carry with me.
