I so wish I could truly love this I so want to love this, because I waited a long time for the Android version and when it works, it's amazing. However, it's not only the only app on my phone that ever crashes, and it crashes quite frequently. I'm always having to uninstall then reinstall it. The other thing I hate is that I have to use Dropbox as an intermediary. There should be an option for uploading the file straight to my device from my laptop when the phone is connected by a USB port. (Came back to lower my rating because - once again - it crashed and I have to reinstall it.)

Despite a generally negative attitude from others I found this app excellent. All I wanted was a way to carry my tree with me on my phone and here it is. Perfect! Instructions for direct USB copying would be a bonus - using Dropbox is a little unnecessary.

Terrible introduction! Step 5 of the initial screen says to place your databases in the newly created RootsMagic folder. Uh, which database is that?? Just awful. I'm not even going to leave this installed, I'll just go back to ancestry.
