Help! I love my Blackberry (I've tried Palms, Windows Mobile ...) EXCEPT for the fact I can find literally ZERO Genealogy software for it.

I like having this with me for those impromptu conversations with Great-Grandma. She needs a little data to get her rolling - and then I'd love to have someplace to put the information she comes up with.

Is anyone aware of anything at all? Even a GEDCOM reader would be a start. I used to use MyRoots on Palm ... that would be ideal.

I was wondering if anyone has found any good software for a Blackberry phone in the last year.

Probably not a huge market for it.

Yes, I would be very interested too if anyone hears of one.

For now though I just have "word to go" on my Blackberry and just add reports. It has a few draw backs though as you had to save to rtf format and then open in word and save as a word document, at least on my genealogy software.

I actually asked about it for my iphone too. It's a shame if they can't do it.

There's more likely to be something for the iPhone, actually. Prior to the Blackberry Storm, application developers only saw the potential for Blackberry in business apps.

Hmmm ... it's an idea at least. It's been 2.5 years since my orginal question ... and no application.

I have discovered I can use Ancestry.com online trees though - via the "Bolt" browser that's in beta. Not bad at all. This is probably my answer.

That's what I was hoping. I can navigate this site pretty well on my iphone, but the loading takes time. I was hoping they could come up with a slightly more compact interface that has quicker loading/searches. More like an app rather than a safari website.

Well...I can dream.

I was thinking about this today ... an app would also eat the batteries less.

Don't worry, the iPhone is hot - you'll get an app before I do.
