Your question has an interesting twist. If you are using FTM 2014 as a front end for an online Ancestry tree, the app will do what you want.

It you are using FTM 2014 to manage your genealogical data on you computer, you may not have enough memory and storage space for FTM on your ipad.

I use FTM to manage my genealogical data on my hard drive. I have a modest tree and it requires nearly 7 GB for the data plus the 650 MB of program files. Very few files in 7 GB are connected into FTM. This does not include all of the picture images that are on my disk that has genealogical images.

My FTM database only contains about 1600 people.

Keith - I assume the the ipad app is similar to the android app - which doesn't copy data from your computer - it downloads it from the Ancestry tree. The app only downloads the main structure, names etc. Images are only downloaded if you try to view them. Most of your 7Gb will be census images etc. - it certainly doesn't take 7Gb to hold 1500 names and dates. Also the PC program has much greater functionality than the app, and includes data such as historical timelines which won't appear on your app.

That is why I responded as I did. An ipod is quite adequate for working on line.

You are right about the census images. I get tired trying to find the census locations with each change in the Ancestry structure, and with each reindexing.

I take my computer with me to many different locations, some do not have cell phone let alone a connection to the web.
