I enjoyed this article: "What is Android Genealogy?" 

To me Android Genealogy can only be one thing but to someone who is a Star Trek fan the term promises something completely different.

Thanks to the writer, Jen Thorpe, who finished off with this plug for the Android Genealogy blog.

"The website called Android Genealogy has nothing to do with Star Trek. It is a straightforward website that points out different genealogy apps that can be used on Android devices. The site is run by Jill Ball, who is an ancient Australian ancestor hunter, who was formerly a librarian, a teacher, and an IT specialist."

What about Australia?

Google+ for Android Update

I resisted upgrading to the latest version of Google+ on my Android Tablet and 'Phone due to some negative comments I heard from those who had.

This week genealogist, Susan Clark, commented on Google+ "Not a fan of the Google+ Android app. Impossible for me to read on a phone."

Some other genies including me concurred with Susan's post (Hope you don't mind me copying and pasting here - I have tried to link back to original post..

What do you think of the latest Google+ Android upgrade?
