Heredis is an excellent genealogy program for Windows and Macintosh in my opinion although I believe many others share that view as well. In light of the recent announcement about the “retirement” of Family Tree Maker, the folks that produce Heredis have issued an invitation to all Family Tree Maker users:
We invite Family Tree Maker software users to try the Heredis genealogy software. In addition, we offer – 50% on all Heredis 2015 software until January 3: a good opportunity to change the software. After, this date, there will be always this promotion (with presentation of proof of the FTM purchase).
Heredis accepts GEDCOM format to transfer data from Family Tree Maker software to Heredis.

Heredis also offers a free application for putting your genealogy on mobiles and tablets: on iOS and soon on Android (January 2016).
The adventure began in 1994, when Bernard David, a computer and genealogy enthusiast, created Heredis for a member of his family who wanted and had not been able to find a simple and intuitive software. Today it is the most advanced genealogy software in terms of the available functions. For 21 years, the whole team has been in the service of enthusiasts for genealogy and for the history of their ancestors. Pioneering and revolutionary, Heredis stands out for its ever more innovative technology, by providing real genealogical solutions for the user. Heredis is also noted for its spirit of cooperation: since July 2014, BSD Concept has become a SCOP (Cooperative and Participatory Society) where the employees have joined forces to give life to this joint project.
