Reunion now on iPhone and iPod Touch

Reunion 9, the full featured genealogy program for the Macintosh computer, now has an add-on program that runs on the iPhone. The iPhone App is available from the App Store, or from Reunion directly. The mobile program will work on both the iPhone and the iPod Touch as long as the iPod Touch is running software update 2.2 or newer. Although there seem to be some bugs that seen to be able to be worked out, the addition of a mobile version makes the overall program much more useful to a true Mac user.

Reunion indicates that the following information can be sent to the iPhone:
  • Multiple family files can be transferred to the iPhone.
  • All or marked people.
  • All person and family information including names, addresses, events, facts and flags.
  • Pictures linked to a person: the preferred, the first 5, 10, 15, or all.
  • Bookmarks.
  • Sources.
  • Logs.
To those familiar with the program, the iPhone version has the Family Card Display, Multimedia 6-generation Overview, Index, Bookmarks, Links Window, Treetops, Ages, Source List, Logs, Preferences, and all data can be edited and synced back tot he family file on the desktop computer.

I am finding that my iPhone is becoming a powerful tool and the latest additions to the available programs makes it even more valuable.
