Heredis for iOS – Calling for Volunteer Beta Testers

A few weeks ago I mentioned some new details and screenshots about the upcoming Heredis for Mac.

Sometime this month they should be going into beta testing of the new Heredis. What I did not realize, was that they were also moving into iOS genealogy apps with new Heredis.

This is a very rough quote using Google’s machine translation, of this month’s Heredis newsletter. I’ve tried to correct the grammar/phrasing where possible.

Heredis calls for volunteers to test versions of iPhone and iPad….

That’s it. The info is official. I can already hear the cries!! Of “Ahhhh! “The” Ohhhh! “The” Yay! “And even” It’s about time! “.

Heredis is proposing a version of its software on iPhone and iPad. We will not say anymore for now, so that the suspense continues until the official release that is scheduled for later in 2012!

So if you have an iPhone (iPhone 3G minimum) or iPad (or know someone who has and who does not necessarily participate in genealogy), if you want to go on an exciting adventure and if you want to discover a preview of what will be Heredis iOS, I invite you to send me your nominations by email to audrey.cavalier (at) mentioning the following information:

– Name
– Email address
– Specifications of your test tool
– Your motivation

Unfortunately, we can not accept all applications, as a beta test is limited to meet with a representative sample of the population of genealogists.

You will see, the genealogy will change..

Heredis will be joining Synium – MacFamilyTree, Leister Pro – Reunion, ohmiGene, and Family Tree Maker for Mac 2 as Mac OS X genealogy applications that also have iOS versions or spinoffs.

You can read the original newsletter in French.

  1. Several years ago I used iMac Heredis software to begin a couple of family trees. When I returned to the data bases a year ago, I discovered that I could not open my old files. I am patiently waiting to get the new version so that I can access my data and continue to research and add to my family tree.
    I also own an iPad 2 and would enjoy testing the beta version on my iPad as that will be the computer I will have with me when I go on holidays when I have time to work on my family trees!

  2. new mac lion and iPhone 4s (first of both for me, new to apple world).
    Learning how to use apps overall.
    Put genealogy research on hold when computer became “dial up slow”. I was excited to get Mac, but shocked to learn that my old PAF program wouldn’t work. Even more shocked to discover the limitations of options. I have been researching, making calls, reading reviews….but still have not made a decision because nothing seems perfect. Too many negative reports from users.
    Thus far I have purchased nothing, so would love to give a program a try from the start.
    All my data is on a flash drive. I will have to make a decision soon. Can’t wait around forever….
    Glad to stumble onto this opportunity.

  4. Big Mac User. Looking to put my family tree digital. We have went back as far as the 1600’s and need help using electronic formats to continue.
