Katherine Boehret, writing in the Wall Street Journal, talked about using Family Tree Maker for Mac as well as the iOS (iPad/iPhone) software from Ancestry.com. I’m not sure if she was using Family Tree Maker for Mac or Family Tree Maker for Mac 2 which just came out last month.
I tested Ancestry.com, its iPhone and iPad apps and the Family Tree Maker desktop software on a Mac. I found a computer to be the best tool for inputting family information like names, birth dates, death dates and locations using Ancestry.com and the Family Tree Maker software. The iPad app was the most enjoyable way of exploring my family-tree records. The site’s pricing can be confusing given the various membership and access levels.
At the end of the article, she mentions that the Family Tree Maker software starts at $32, but that’s for the Windows/PC version. Family Tree Maker for Mac 2 is normally $69.99, but is on sale for $52.49 with the upgrade being on sale for $41.99. There is only one version of the Mac software, but it is feature compatible with the Windows versions, unlike the original Family Tree Maker for Mac.
