Note: You may need to be a member of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in order to use this iPhone or iPod Touch app – it uses their genealogy database and this app requires login credentials for New.FamilySearch.org. This app will also not display information from living individuals.
Version 1.1 is a major update to MobileTree, a front-end to the LDS’ New.FamilySearch.org. MobileTree allows you to download and take your genealogy information with you. Along with the major update comes a major price change – from $4.99 to $9.99 US. The major update revolves around multimedia functionality (aka a media center). You can now add photos, movies, audio, and text to the genealogy information you have available through the app. You can also share any of those media files that have been added to ancestor entries. There are also some performance updates.
* Use MobileTree to create pictures, stories, video and audio.
* Share pictures, stories, audio interviews and video clips with others in your family.
* Bug fixes.
* Price change.
Apparently there will soon be a “lite” version – MobileTree Lite, that will cost $2.99 and will function the same as the full version, just without media functionality/media center.
– While you can edit/add information, keep in mind that it’s similar to Ancestry.com Tree to Go in being a front-end to a genealogy website/database.
