    This is really great. I used it at the library today. I can put my smart phone in my pocket and do not worry about an iPad walking off.

      Hi Angela

      Right now the app is available for iOS and Android only, but more platforms may be added in the future.The new HTML5-based family tree on the app will replace the flash-based tree that we have on in the future, so we hope you can enjoy that improved experience soon enough.

    Why can’t I sync with my existing tree. Not going to use it if I build my tree from scratch.

    Hi Myheritage team,

    I’m a member who pays for myheritage and it bothers me, that there isn’t an app for the Blackberry Users…a whole lot of my living family tree members have a blackberry.

    An it bothers me, that everytime I visit my family tree site, that you make commercials about how many people have download the app, but there are no blackberry users amongs them.

    So what about the Blackberry users???

    The only settings are tteitwr username/password and they can be found by clicking the standard menu button. The picture with the phone and bubble is an example image, it should show the image you choose or take in it’s place.
