It's great to be able to watch these in spare minutes. The vids are short and informative. I mostly don't go for 'reading instructions' unless it's absolutely necessary. I prefer to learn as I go. I don't want to learn how to make a tree, I want to go make the tree! For the most part, I can do just that in Ancestry - even searching for records and clues is amazingly easy.
These videos give me valuable info and tools I don't get from doing. I love it!
I don't understand the bad reviews, however, I'm an ancestry subscriber, so maybe my experience is different?

Doesn’t work

I thought I’d struck gold when I found this app. Then I download it and every time I try to sign in I get an error that says I must be connected to a network to continue. Even though I am. And even though the main Ancestry and AncestryDNA apps work just fine. Disappointed is an understatement. For what Ancestry charges for membership I expect better.

Much ado about nothing

Pretty enough, but it won't load any of the lessons. I'm a paid subscriber, so it's not like only the free ones are available. Waste of time and money. Won't be renewing any of the extras. Very disappointed in spite of the mess they made of FamilyTree Maker. Sigh
