Ancestry.com on a new iPad3

Ancestry.com on a new iPad3

Is it me or is this app missing a ton of possible features. The biggest is I'm not able to search records on anyone. Sure if there is a leaf then maybe but that seems to be the only way. Next there are no help file or anything that would assist someone that was using this app in a remote location. I would love to use this in a library or in the field, or while just sitting in bed. It appears to be just a flat file of what you have in your online Ancestry.com. Again it could be me but I don't think so.

If others are seeing this, how are you working aroung it. using another app?

Go to the Evidence tab and scroll to the bottom, you will find the search button. This opens Ancestry in Safari and starts a search for the person you had selected. You can add sources from the search via Safari and they will synch back to the app as soon as you switch back.

Be aware that there is an issue with Ancestry.com under Safari forgetting you are logged in and making you log in repeatedly. See other posts here for more info.
