A little over a year later, the first big update was released: MobileFamilyTree 2. Not only did version 2 show persons and families, but was able to display almost everything MacFamilyTree displays. The new features it offered were the virtual tree, the map view with Google Maps, the family quiz and a new media browser. One limitation, however, stayed: MacFamilyTree was still required alongside on a Mac, MobileFamilyTree still only was a companion app. The computing power of the first iPhone simply was not enough to import big databases on its own, so that work had to be done by a Mac and MacFamilyTree.
