happy itouch user ,


I recently purchased an ipod touch as a replacement for my aging Palm pilot. I needed a GEDCOM file viewer for my ipod touch. GedView is a very good product and is definitely worth the price. GedView would be much improved if it had the ability to search by events (e.g. burials) and if it could also list births, deaths, and marriages for a given date and had a relationship calculator. It would be cool to see these features added to a future version of GedView.

Thank you for adding the “On This Day” feature. It would help if the names were easier to read with larger font and better color. It would really be neat if you created an “On This Day” widget for this app. Thank you for considering.

Basic. Not helpful for cemeteries though,,,

Like the $, the fact that its basic is fine but since you can't choose how to sort your names it's pretty much not helpful in a cemetery or out on a research trip. If you were trying to sort by a place of birth, marriage, death or burial (doesn't seem to support a description field: although that could be the way the gedcom exported) you can't so you won't be able to give up taking a paper copy of your info to the cemetery or the local research center. On the plus side it does support portrait view so you can read all the info, (which is good because the screen looks just like the screen shot - and you can't tap it to enlarge a name/field). This would be helpful if you had family who was asking you for info on a casual visit when you wouldn't have your research in front of you. The screenshots don't show that you can tap a person and get family relationships for them which is nice. Looking forward to future updates.

Simple but powerful

This is a great tool for doing iPad based research on the go. It is easy to use but quite powerful. I routinely transfer files between my desktop application (Ftm) and GedView and then export the changes so I can view those before importing back into my desktop app. A great tool at a very reasonable price.
