App Reviews

I feel that some of the ultrapositive reviews on GenSoftReviews are posted by those with vested interests such as the slew of positive reviews when version 8 of The Master Genealogist was recently released. 

Anyone contemplating purchase of new genealogy software should stop by this site as the bulk of reviews and accompanying  comments are very useful. 

GenSoftReviews is a site owned by Louis Kessler  who"wanted an interactive site, one that allowed anyone to review and rate their genealogy software."  There are presently over 1,000 reviews of genealogy software packages on the site. Visitors have several options to search for appropriate reviews. The site also gives one the option to subscribe by RSS and have a message delivered whenever a new review is added to the site.

The good news for Android users is that there are presently 17 Android apps listed on the site. I would encourage Android users to both consult these reviews and add their own reviews to the site. I just posted my first review - it was very easy to do.

  1. Jill,

    Thank you for the nice writeup about GenSoftReviews. If you or anyone else know of other Android Genealogy apps that do more than just give access to data records, please let me know and I'll be happy to add them to GenSoftReviews.

    Also see Tamura Jones' two recent articles:
    (1) Free Android Genealogy Apps:

    I hope to meet you at RootsTech.
