Android gedcom viewer?
« on: Monday 30 January 23 17:03 GMT (UK) »
Hello everyone,

For years, I've been using Family Bee as a simple gedcom viewer on my Android 'phones. (My main family history programme is Family Historian, and I just periodically copied the gedcom that creates to my 'phone.)

But having just upgraded to a new Android 'phone, it seems that Family Bee is no longer available. :(

I liked Family Bee as it was uncomplicated and very fast. I know I can access Ancestry/FindMyPast on my 'phone, but it's nice to have something quick and simple. Plus I also keep a bit more info, particularly on living individuals, on my offline tree.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a replacement for Family Bee?

Thanks

I've been using Family Gem for a while now. Very simple but it's all I need.

There's a list on the Family Historian User Group website which includes Android apps:

I have GEDexplorer on a Fire tablet (similar to Android) and it works well. I tried a few free apps first, but none of them were as good as this turned out to be. My experience was more or less in line with the kind of comments found in the reviews on the app store.
