2.0 out of 5 stars April 2016 update a big disappointment 26 April 2016
By Harriet B. Jewell - Published on Amazon.com

I have used the Ancestry app since 2012 over two Kindles. Love Ancestry, love Kindles. The original app was clean, simple, easy to use. Then Ancestry took over from the 3rd party provider, and the app got a few minor updates. I installed the latest available version on a new Kindle Fire in August, 2014.

The Apr 2016 update added more graphics and fluff but no substance--can no longer simply look up the great-grandparents' wedding date without being forced to read their "lifestory," apparently provided for folks unable to string together sentences--and the app has stalled and either closed or locked up on every attempted use. Tree sync (required) time is just under half an hour, hints took slightly longer since apparently the app downloads MANY hints and not just one. Individual search times offline, like when wandering around a wi-fi-free cemetery, 3-5 minutes IF even possible. (It happened a couple of times, before requiring reboot.)

Giving the app two stars rather than one because I liked the new profile layout, which I saw 3 whole times--before "Ancestry has closed"--better than their last one.

TV shows, movies, music? No problem, love the Kindle. Ancestry's website using the Kindle Silk browser? Speedy and slick. But my large Ancestry tree (17K profiles) is not manageable on a 32-month-old Fire (2 GB unused storage) using their mobile app?? Have just been informed by Ancestry Mobile App customer service (who took a mere 52 hours to respond) that my "Android device is a much older version which can really play a part in the app running slow."

Oh, darn, back to using that miserably speedy browser on Ancestry's full website.

And since that decrepit machine works otherwise just fine, with more than satisfactory speed for Ancestry's You Tube videos, I'm not abandoning a perfectly serviceable device for a poorly conceived and serviced app. Would not have written a review had the app's built-in begging not been the only thing I could read on the screen while waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting....

Keeping the Kindle, dumping the app.

5.0 out of 5 stars A STELLAR SERVICE 8 December 2015
By Grandma Hook - Published on Amazon.com

I prefer using my desk computer to working with the tablet app, but that's just a matter of choice. The app does a fine job. It's neither slow nor superficial in any way. It tracks hints, shows graphics, and searches just as well as it's "Big Brother." I'm happy to have made so many connections as I have through Ancestry.com. The site and its products are stellar. It has saved me years of travel and discouragement, and shined lights onto branches of my family tree I never imagined to exist. The Ancestry folk do an excellent job. A subscription is worth every penny.

The Ancestry app is a fine addition to my Kindle. Have been doing family research for years. Now I can research anytime I want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this! 20 June 2012

This app is an absolute must for serious ancestry.com users. You can fly around your tree and make quick edits to almost everything. View photos, documents, life events (make changes just by taping) view realtionships, use search. I find it very intuitive and sometimes actually easier to use than the site. For people that already use ancestry I think the app will be a dream come true. Newbies should probally get familiar with the site first.
