Major updates for the popular genealogy applications MacFamilyTree and MobileFamilyTree for iPhone and iPad have just been released. The new versions are available free of charge for customers of version 7. New customers can obtain a 50% discount for a limited period of time. During the promotion MacFamilyTree is just US$ 24.99 instead of the regular price of $49.99. MobileFamilyTree for iPhone and iPod sells for just US$ 6.99 instead of the normal price of $14.99.
I have both products and must say they are full-featured programs. Both are very easy to use and have perhaps the nicest user interface of any genealogy programs I have used.
MacFamilyTree 7.2 and MobileFamilyTree 7.2 include completely overhauled reports, enhanced printing and the new Interactive Family Tree for more comprehensive and faster navigation through your family tree. The new version also features a brand new FamilySearch summary page as well as numerous other tweaks.
The program’s web site reports:
“One of MacFamilyTree’s biggest assets gets even better in version 7.2. Define styles, background images and ornaments, create PDF files with just one click or rely on the vastly improved printing features including page layout settings.
“All reports can be exported into the 16 languages MacFamilyTree has been localized to: English, German, Danish, French, Chinese, Finnish, Norwegian, Italian, Dutch, Czech, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Hungarian, and Polish.
“Display up to 12 generations simultaneously in the new Interactive Family Tree combining a comprehensive overview and input of new information. Simply navigate through your family tree or edit persons and information in place. Zoom in and out of the tree as you please. If you use FamilySearch, the Interactive Family Tree displays all persons who have not yet been added to your family tree but are available in FamilySearch’s giant database.
“New FamilySearch overview
“Searching for ancestors in the world’s largest genealogical archive with its billions of records has never been as easy and convenient. The new FamilySearch summary page features all relevant information about updated or possibly new persons at a glance. Browse results with the new results list or find out who contributed new facts to FamilySearch.”
MacFamilyTree requires OS X 10.7 or later while MobileFamilyTree for iPad and iPhone requires iOS 6 or later.
