So, what’s included in the new MyHeritage mobile app?
Your family tree like you’ve never seen it before – The new MyHeritage app was made especially for mobile devices using cutting-edge HTML5, and combines beautiful graphics and touch-screen gestures to create an experience that will impress your relatives and make you proud of your family history.
Explore the tree using pinch-zoom and panning, or easily navigate with our unique radar (iPad only). Tap on a card to view a family member’s profile page, where you can browse information and events, view birthday and anniversary info, tap to email or simply give them a call. We’re already working hard on additional features, including editing of the family tree which version 1.0 doesn’t provide yet, so stay tuned for updates.
Easy photo-sharing – Capture family moments as they happen, quickly share them with the people you love and automatically store them on your family site. Advanced face recognition technology identifies family members in the photo and suggests sharing the photo with them effortlessly. A simple quick-list easy photo sharing created automatically with your closest family members makes photo sharing with family members easier than ever, while a stream of the most recent photos uploaded to your family site ensures that special family moments will never be missed, no matter where you are.
Cool celebrity look-alike feature – Discover your celebrity look-alikes with the MyCeleb feature, based on our face recognition technology and on a huge database of over 4,000 celebrities. Is your celebrity twin a movie star, a top model or a famous pop singer? Find out and share the results on Facebook or Twitter.
Download the app now and impress your relatives this holiday season!
Note: the new MyHeritage app for mobile replaces and supersedes our previous mobile apps FamilyConnect and MyCeleb. If you have used one of them before, install the new app to enjoy all the new features.
