One of the more popular genealogy programs for Macintosh and one for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch devices have both been updated. The following announcement was written by Synium Software:
As a special christmas gift, MacFamilyTree and MobileFamilyTree Pro as well as the update to MacFamilyTree 6 is offered with a 50% Discount until December 29th 2011!
The new Tree Chart displays all connected relatives to a specific person for up to 200 generations. This way, you get the big picture of your whole family tree.
The Source Report displays all sources in your tree file including all entries in your database citing the source.
MacFamilyTree 6.2 features the Family Quiz which previously had only been available in MobileFamilyTree Pro. New kinds of questions have been added to both versions.
Both new versions offer a new report, the so called Ahnentafel Report. It displays all ancestors of a person including person pictures and the narrative report for all persons included.
To Do Report
If you're working with To Do lists in MacFamilyTree or MobileFamilyTree Pro, the new printable To Do Report can help you organize your research.
Improved GEDCOM Support
Importing and exporting GEDCOM files has been greatly improved in both, MacFamilyTree and MobileFamilyTree Pro. This way, data exchange with other genealogy apps has never been easier.
All charts in MacFamilyTree and MobileFamilyTree Pro have been optimized for performance. Especially on iOS devices, the performance gain is quite noticeable for larger databases. Furthermore, title and creation dates can be included in all charts.
Several reports like the Person List Report or the Kinship Report optionally show pictures of persons. The narrative report handles even more event types and the general layout of several reports has been improved.
