Ancestry.com's Mobile App Reaches One Million Downloads

PROVO, Utah, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ancestry.com's mobile app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod has now been downloaded over 1 million times, with one-third of those downloads happening in the last two months alone.  In addition, over half of users of the app are new to Ancestry.com indicating a growing interest in family history, Ancestry.com and in mobile in general.

"We've been pleased with the early adoption of our iPhone and iPad apps and believe we are just getting started," said Eric Shoup, senior vice president of product for Ancestry.com. "It's a natural extension of the Ancestry.com service and another way to help our members discover, preserve and share their family history."

Users have provided outstanding feedback:

"This is a great app! I love working on our family tree. And now I can have it with me to show to others. I was always forgetting a name or position on the tree. Now I just pull it up on my iPhone and get it right!!" – K. Noni

"Wow! My husband and I had a great time inputting our information. We're actually going to subscribe and keep this going. Didn't know we'd have so much fun with this App." – S. O'Banion 

"I've never written a review but as a historical family researcher this is a great app. I have everything I need in one place while attending family reunions, visiting cemeteries, court houses and libraries! It allows me to make changes on the spot and share information with other relatives. Bravo!" – K. Williams

Ancestry.com's mobile app provides an excellent way to share family stories and videos at reunions and other gatherings, and it is ideal for field research, collection and documentation. The app's intuitive user interface and integration with Ancestry.com make it simple to view individual records or entire family trees, record memories, edit vital information, document life events and organize photos. Using the camera features on iPhone and iPad 2, users can take photos of relatives, historical documents or other keepsakes and upload them directly to their family tree on Ancestry.com.
