Ancestry on the Go

I love this app. I have it on my phone. I can keep up with my family history almost anywhere I go. In airports, hotels, everywhere there is an Internet connection. I can review Hints on the go and edit my family tree whenever I have a few minutes to pass. And, the best thing is that all of my mobile devices update themselves with any changes I make, so I don't have to worry about conflicting records. Thanks!

Cancellation fee

Just so everyone knows, they charge a $25 cancellation fee, even if paying month to month.

Upgrades make it freeze

Every time an improvement comes along, it works less and less. I am at the point now that it totally is useless

I love Ancestry and have been working on my tree for years. But the last few months, the app has been almost unusable. What a waste!
