SAN FRANCISCO Jan. 31, 2011 Ancestry
A dynamic, intuitive user interface and integration with Ancestry.com makes it simple for users to record memories, edit vital information, document life events and organize photos, and also for use in conducting field research, collection, and documentation.
Introducing Ancestry.com onto this compelling platform takes the website one step closer to its mission of helping everyone discover, preserve and share their family history.
"Since I already use my iPhone to document my life, it’s natural to use it to document my family tree," Ancestry.com Aaron Vaughn San Francisco "Being able to research and upload photos and information on-the-fly makes updating my Ancestry.com account a seamless part of my life. Now, with the new iPad app, I’ve got all the added benefits the larger format affords."
Eric Shoup "The new Ancestry iPad app makes it fun and easy to explore and share your family history research by allowing you and your family to tap and swipe your way through your family tree, old photos and records.
"Ancestry.com is committed to leveraging the latest technology to make what we offer on our website easily accessible, simple and enjoyable to use for family history novices and experts alike, at their desks or in the field."
The Ancestry.com app for iPad is now available for free at the iTunes App Store. A new version of the popular Ancestry.com iPhone app, which includes more features for navigating a family tree and viewing records already attached to a tree, is also available for free in the App Store.
