GedStar Pro for Android Announced

In case you are a Palm user (or former Palm OS user) and have been wondering what happened to GedStar, wonder no more!

Rather than make the transition to webOS 2.0 and continue on HP/Palm hardware, GHCS Software has made the transition to Google’s Android platform.

This is a major deal for the Google Android platform as there hasn’t been much in the way of genealogy software for Android – a couple of family tree/GEDCOM browsers called AGeneDB and Family Bee. GedStar will be the first fully-featured genealogy app for the Android platform. According to the press release below, everything from the Palm version has been ported to the Android version.
