Ancestry App Reviews

  • Now not working!!!

    By acftmxman
    The app was slow before the last two updates. But now, I’m stuck switching between trees and the app freezes. Clicked on app support only to be met with safari saying the page doesn’t exist. Not good considering the $200.00 USD for an annual membership.

    Love finding my ancestors and family history!
  • Still enjoying

    By VIckiVanSlyke
    I had some trouble, but people at the company kept making suggestions until we got it up and running. Thanks for the help, and the follow up! It’s been working quite well. I love that they added the merge part.
  • Robust and intuitive

    *Faster* and easier to use than the desktop. So easy to merge duplicate ancestors. You get the choice of searching the web or the app—at high traffic times it's nice to have an alternate route. The app doesn't do everything the desktop does (you can't invite people to your tree) but you won't mind: it's simpler to upload pictures, SO MUCH easier to compare multiple records from other trees. 2 steps boom. No need to review first, the algorithm does the thinking. Plus you can take Ancestry anywhere there's a cell signal and time travel with one hand.
  • This has been enjoyable

    I have heard for a little while that I had Jewish roots. Once I started with my tree it became apparent but then I did my DNA test and found that I also have a host of other nationalities in my DNA. An adventure indeed!
  • Great app

  • Not as good as desktop version, data missing

    By ATxQt
    I’ve been working with Ancestry for several years and am impressed with the program overall and it’s depth and breadth of information. My father worked on genealogy and used Family Tree Maker. I was able to import his work to my tree and build it as our family grew. I’ve spent the last three weeks adding people and photos and details, and NONE of that work shows up on the app. Yes, I’ve checked my login credentials. No, I don’t have multiple trees. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and those entries are missing in the app but visible on the desktop version. That makes the app useless to me. Also it is very cumbersome to use and harder to navigate an enormous tree that goes back to the 1600s on both sides of my family. All in all, Ancestry is great, but this app is not useful.
  • Very intriguing!
