I keep a copy of Heredis on my desktop and laptop computers. An iPHone/iPad version also has been available for some time as well. Now the company has announced a version of Heredis for Android users. Yes, you can keep your genealogy database in your pocket and easily refer to it at any time, wherever you are. I added Heredis to my Android cell phone this morning.
The Heredis for Android application is a beta version. Initially, the beta version offers essential functions for working with your genealogy on Android. You can copy Heredis files (only from the 2015 or later versions for Windows and Mac) from a desktop version of Heredis to your Android device. Then you will be able to view, browse, edit, delete and add certain data from your tree directly in the Android device. In the coming months, updates will become available that will offer exactly the same features as what is available on its counterpart on Apple iOS.

The adventure began in 1994 when David Bernard, computer and genealogy enthusiast, created Heredis for a family member who wanted a simple and intuitive software that he could not find.
Today it is the most popular genealogy software in Europe. For 22 years, the whole team has been at the service of people who love genealogy and the history of their ancestors. Cutting-edge and revolutionary, Heredis stands out by offering ever more innovative technological choices and providing real genealogical solutions adapted for the user.
Equally, Heredis also stands out for its cooperative spirit: since July 2014, BSD Concept has been a SCOP where employees have joined forces to give life to this joint project.
