Shrubs 2.0

A few days ago, Shrubs 2.0 was made available through the Apple iTunes AppStore (Direct link: Shrubs).

Shrubs is a genealogy application for iPhone and iPod touch users that allows you to import up to a 4MB GEDCOM file. It requires iPhone/iPod software version 2.1.

Just as Shrubs 1.4 saw major performance enhancements, Shrubs 2.0 also has major performance improvements. It also has a major overhaul as far as the user interface.

It’s important to note that you will need to import your GEDCOM file again, as the internal database has been changed/upgraded.

Changes:
* significant UI overhaul
* performance improvements
* ability to import files directly over WiFi (built-in web server)
* all individual and family events are now supported
* event sources are now managed

Upcoming Changes/Known Issues:
* individuals with only a last name (no first name) may show up with a blank name (fixed in 2.1)
* individual index may display multiple entries for the same individual when said individual has multiple birth/death events (fixed in 2.1)
* pressing the Upload button on the web interface without selecting a file may cause the application to crash (will be fixed in 2.1)
* individual and family events show up improperly if the GEDCOM file uses the “Y” tag next to the actual event tag (will be fixed in 2.1)

  1. Can newly entered data be easily found? I would like to have a file that has all newly entered data so that the data can then be added to the files on my PC.
