Unfortunately the Android version of the App only has the pedigree (single child) view, unlike the iOS version which has both pedigree and family views (like the website, though not FTM). Yes you can use "show family", but it's nowhere near as convenient as the scroll-around family view that iOS has. Though I'm not an apple user, I have to say the apple app is far nicer to use. As I'm on android, it's one of the main reasons I also use the website as well as the app (and FTM).
The android version was even less capable in the past (it didn't have shaky-leaf hints, for example), so I suppose there's hope that they'll improve it soon and introduce a family view, especially as I believe android users outnumber iOS users (though maybe not in terms of the Ancestry app?).
If we all send feedback asking for a family view for the android app, maybe it will happen sooner!
