Since last writing about MobileFamilyTree in August 08, they've added photo support - just what I was looking for. I've got a whole bunch of photos now inside my genealogy program on my iPhone!
I just visited MobileFamilyTree's website today and they are touting a new upgrade to their mobile genealogy app. MobileFamilyTree 2 is on the verge of release in the iTunes store.
The big feature I am looking forward to is the photo media browser already available on the extremely powerful desktop product: MacFamilyTree. The media browser will make it easier to manage photos from the iPhone.
I've already been using the first version of MobileFamilyTree on my iPhone with relatives when I visit. It helps tremendously and gets some excitement going to have my entire family tree in the palm of my hand. I can enter data when my relative tells me about someone - both the genealogical details like birthdate and place but also stories.
The current version of MobileFamilyTree is 1.33 (itunes store link). You can acquire the app now and get a free upgrade (or at least that almost always works) when 2.0 is released. By the way, my Dad is the guy on the left above with the surf board and my grand mother, Theresa Jane Zollner Frakes is below.
I do love genealogy and hope to be more active with this blog. I strongly encourage you if you have the least bit of aptitude or interest to start your own family blog.
