This month, GedView has undergone a major update, with a couple of follow-up updates. GedView is an iOS-based genealogy app for iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads.
GedView 3.0 added support for more data within GEDCOM files, including more custom tags as well as mapping (latitude/longitude coordinates) in GEDCOM files created by certain genealogy applications.
The major updates to GedView center around media/multimedia support. Photos, video, audio, and documents are now supported for individual, family, event/fact, source citations, and source entries.
Support was also added that allows you to take photos, video, audio with a device that has photo or video capabilities (such as iPhone 4s) and attach them to records/entries.
