Rushed and Incomplete

This app seems to have been a rushed product that has not been properly tested.
Page navigation is slow and clunky: Hints appear in a fixed frame that cannot be completely viewed: There doesn’t appear to be a way to undo an action, and so much more that is wrong.
Back to the drawing board I think and do better with upgrades, which I hope are forthcoming-soon!

Family tree companion app

This isn’t the full findmyapst experience (no searching) but I’ve been meaning to look at the hints on my tree for ages now and this has meant I can do so without having to sit down at the computer. I’ve added a load more information to my tree as I didn’t realise there are now hints for military records too. I’ve also taken photos with my iPhone and uploaded them to my tree, but can’t figure out how to set them as profile pics for people on my tree?!

Good first release

Yes - at last a release of FMP for mobile.
Appreciate this is an initial release and so, so far so good.
Look forward to having tree view and an offline mode in future releases (so we can show family the tree and where they are even if we have no connection).
Thank you for taking time to develop this.
