Words can’t describe it (but I’ll try)

I only wanted this app for its ability to automatically fix old scanned photos - so first I’ll talk about that. Amazing - it fixes scratched, torn, faded, etc photos, it uses AI to get amazing detail like strands of facial hair, a cut on a child’s lip. It colorized old black and white/sepia photos and it fixes color issues with old faded, poorly colored photos. Finally, it can animate a still photo. Imagine having a short video of your great grandmother turning to the camera and smiling at you. Incredible.

But then there’s the feature I swore I had no need for - the family tree. With a few pieces of info (like maiden names, country of birth, year of birth) it was able to help complete a family tree and get photos we didn’t have like my mother’s 1950’s high school spanish club photo, signatures of my grandparents ellis island immigration, and more.

Then there’s abilities like family members adding their own photos, correcting/filling out data, etc. You have to try it all out for yourself. I went with the 1 year full plan - money well spent.

Great app, but take care with free trial

I clicked on the free trial before buying this app. I enjoyed its features, and relative (pardon the pun) ease of use. It’s the best one I’ve tried so far.
I hemmed and hawed as to whether or not to subscribe for a year. Well, I decided not to at this time, went in the settings to decline the $99 subscription, it let me. I thought. Until I got a receipt telling me that my credit card was just charged $99 plus tax for the My Heritage app. There appears to be no way to undo this charge, so I’m stuck with it. I’m not going to pursue a refund, however, just a fair warning...if you are still in the free trial mode, I suggest you decide at least a couple of days before your trial period ends, to cancel. The small print says to give at least 24 hours notice. I believe that was my mistake. I gave it 23 hours maybe. I don’t know.
Anyway, now that I have it for a year, I guess I’ll explore my crazy family tree that I know will be a challenge because it’s all over the place.
This is a really good app, and I highly recommend playing with the animation feature with old portraits of dead people if you have them! It’s freaky. I have a 72-year-old friend who adored his father who died at age 56. I animated a photo for him as a surprise, and he burst into tears of joy and nostalgia. That alone was worth the hundred bucks!
Nice app, I really do recommend it, but be wary of the free trial time limit.

Really great with 2 suggestions

Just getting into program, had some trouble porting over my familysearch account but now that seems solved. Looking forward to digging a little deeper. Fascinated by the animation tool, would make two suggestions: one. Rather than just having animation numbers, describe each one, I.e. which ones might be better for a left leaning or right leaning portrait and which ones are more heavily animated or more mildly animated, as sometimes if a portrait is looking slightly left or right it looks a little bizarre when the animation tries to make it look the other direction. Also, two- with the animation make it a loop that ends in the same location as the beginning so there’s no jarring jump right at the end. It’s easy to become emotionally engaged with an animation and suspending the reality in that way would help maintain that. Thanks and God bless.
