The following announcement was written by GHCS Software:
GHCS Software of Rochester, Michigan, announces the release of the first version of GedStar Pro for Android smartphones. GedStar Pro was previously one of the most popular genealogy programs for “Palm Pilot” PDAs, and all of that product’s powerful data viewing capabilities have been ported to the new platform.
Working along with any genealogy program that runs on the user’s PC, GedStar Pro can import data not only from GEDCOM files, but also directly from the databases of “The Master Genealogist” and “Legacy Family Tree.” On the smartphone, it displays all of the user’s data, such as events, facts, sources, notes, and even photos.
Proprietor Doug Gordon says, “I’ve found that my Android smartphone can do everything that my old PDA used to do and then some, so it made perfect sense to port GedStar Pro to this powerful new platform and get my family history back into my pocket. We’ve got all the basics available right now and plan to keep adding features in the future.”
The GedStar Pro Android application is available free on the Android Market, which is accessible directly from your smartphone. The Windows portion of the product is available with a 28-day free trial period from the GHCS web site at http://gedstarpro.com. As with the previous PDA product, updates will be available free of charge to registered users.
