  • Dissappointing

    By met52h
    Needs an update. When I try to zoom in on my documents they are blurry and unreadable. Adding info from Legacy seems more like converting and then downloading my Legacy info, not syncing like with Evernote or other programs that sync info. Was not worth the cost.
  • Worst app I've used

    By Countrygirl2of6
    The app has been updated to include lots of information extracted from my Legacy Family Tree but the problem is that it is the absolutely most cumbersome, convoluted transfer process I've ever had the misfortune to use. It literally, if all goes well, takes an hour or more to do a simply sync because there is nothing simple about "Families." Why a company as terrific as Legacy would use this app for their iOS mobile customers is beyond comprehension. Today has been 100% wasted on trying to get the program to sync, with the result that I have had to dump it from my iPhone. How does one write Negative Stars? They don't deserve even one. It is worse than "I hate it." It has wasted too many precious hours/days trying to work the app.

    DO NOT buy Families! The installation and sync features are nightmares. If you have a joint Apple account they are next to impossible. The user interface comes from pre-personal computer times. It gives Legacy Family Tree a bad name. Not a computer platform crossover.

  • Save your money

    Recently purchased and evaluated this software. Worst money that I have ever spent in the App Store. Learn from my bad experience and stay clear of this piece of junk!
  • Printing

    By Mygirljessie
    I love the program. Only drawback is that i would love to be able to print. I would like to see Ancestor and Descendant Reports and be able to print them.
  • Does not work with Legacy 8

    By 27shofly
    I have given this app 2 stars because it seems to have nice features. Unfortunately, even though it claims to, it does not yet work with Legacy 8. Maybe there will be an update soon.
  • Great App

    By Families App User
    An App that does what it claims! Very fictional! I can't say enough about how much I like it.

    This is a very good idea. Unfortunately I can't get it to work. I once got my data transferred from my PC to my iPad, but then the application got hung up. I tried to get support. I was told to delete the program and start over. I've never been able to get the data transferred since and support is no help. The application has been a great waste of time for me and a waste of money. I would not recommend it.
  • So far so good

    Downloaded the app and the computer end software, synced over wifi and had my tree, photos, notes and such in a matter of minutes. (About 10,000 ancestors)
