Ancestry.com’s iPhone app—which lets you carry your family tree around in your pocket—has been updated with new features that include iPad optimisation
The company’s newly universal app, Ancestry 2.0, debuted on Monday. In addition to its revamping for the iPad, the app features a new interactive family tree viewer to help users visualise family relationships, as well as the ability to view supporting historical documents.
The app does require an Ancestry.com account to work. Memberships cost between $179.40 and $299.88 depending on the package option you select. The fees pay for access to more than a century’s worth of Census, immigration, Social Security, and military records data that help users piece together the puzzles of their family history.
The Ancestry app itself is free and compatible with any device running iOS 3.1 or later.
