    I have an Android HTC Wildfire. When I try to download it from the Android Market, I get the message that it canon be installed on my Android. What goes. Wrong?

      Hi Peter. It might be either due to weak device or OS under 2.2. Android market doesn’t allow installation on devices that don’t fit app’s requirements (those requirements are written on the right to the Android market description).

  • Jules

    Peter, on the android market they say that the app doesn’t support the resolution(240*320) of the HTC wildfire, or maybe you have OS under 2.2? hope you’ll get to see the app anyway, it’s really cool. Cheers mate!

    Why does this meed to know my location? Fine GPS is selected

    • Ania

      December 18, 2011

      Hi William. In order to have proper EXIF (photo data) of the photo user is uploading, we need to know that. In the future, more geo-location features are planned to be added to enhance genealogical research.

    You need to be able to select to install both MyHeritahe and Adobe Air on the SD card

    Is there an Apple version of My Heritage available, as well?

    • Ania

      December 17, 2011

      Hi Cathlee. If you are referring to a version of the Family Tree Builder for Mac or Apple, the software does not support the Mac yet but we plan to address this in the future.

    Cathleen, check out

    William, I think it’s related to the photo-sharing part of the app, so when it’s on your family site it has all the data of the photo.

    Congratulations, at last an app to rival the Ancestry to go app.
    I am thrilled at the launch, but haven’t delved into the workings much yet.

    It appears that although I run Android 2.2.1 on my HTC Wildfire it says it is not compatible with this application. Is this so, and will you make the app compatible? If it should be compatible, how do I load the app?

    • Ania

      December 19, 2011

      Hi Albert. MyHeritage app for Android currently does not support Android OS below 2.2 and low resolution screens. The new HTML5-based tree will soon be available on Stay tuned for updates.

    Thanks for the, potentially, nice app.
    I’ve installed it on the iPad, but i only can see a part of the family tree.
    In my case only 47 of 162 persons are shown.
    I do not see any option screen for setting, for example, the number of generations to show.
    Any idea if this is a tree issue or an app issue ?

    Prezados Senhores
    O fato de ainda não entrado totalmente no myheritage, versão gratis, é que o números de membros determinados por vocês é pequeno para minha família que cresce uma média de 04 a 06 por ano. Atualmente é de 294 membros.

    Hi Garry – please go to and sign in to your account or if you use the Family Tree Builder Software login to that. Click on any person so add a family member. If you have any questions please email

    Great app!! But bit frustrating that you cannot add family members on the app. When logged online on my iPad I cannot add people in because apple do not support flash on iPad which means that you cannot see the family. Bit of a downside to this app.

    Is there a way to download the family tree to the ipad so you don’t need a connection to view the tree? Thanks.

    • Aaron

      July 25, 2012

      Hi Jordan. Your iPad will need to have an active web connection in order to view your family tree. Thanks.
