I don’t mind that FTM Connect is read only—this permits family sharing without anyone editing my database. I like the info tab that includes earliest and most recent births, average lifespan, etc. However, navigation is clunky and the data displayed are limited. To see any useful information (for example: relationships, facts, locations, sources) I have to go to my MacBook and use FTM 2019, which renders FTM Connect mostly useless. I am especially disappointed that I have found no way to see relationships in FTM Connect, and this is one of the most frequent things I search. Unless Mackiev updates FTM Connect to access and display much more information, I definitely won’t pay for a subscription once the free membership expires. After all, “Connect” suggest that one is able to connect to the entire FTM database.

App is pretty basic and very similar to Ancestry one if you use that. FTM connect however, will cost you when trial expires.
On the other hand, since connect, Ancestry sync stays Orange with big warning not to sync again if it fails (it does) so looks like your forced to use connect now.

I have not used FTM connect yet but on first glance it is what I wanted. I have carried a sheaf of papers into European archives to guide my search for primary source material. They don’t allow laptops in but they do allow phones. I’ll adjust my rating if necessary after I use it on a research trip. But given the high quality of laptop FTM I doubt I’ll have to. To those who expect to have the full FTM on their phone, really? Have you thought that through?
