Found this software package today, for Mac and iPhone (for mobile use). I really appreciate the creation tools. There is a part of the demo video where the creation of a family unit looks so seamless and understandable. Just figure some of you might want to know about it (if you didn't already). I am a Mac user but also run Windows XP on Parallels for MacOS. I am always on the lookout for innovative genealogy tools for Mac as I bounce between my PAF on Windows and hope in the newFamilySearch.

That does look pretty cool though...

Exactly my thoughts. There are only emulation options for Mac users, so might as well shop around (if you have to, I like free stuff just as much as the next person).

A real find for the Mac users would be something that will sync with newFamilySearch.

Yeah, about that. Any working projects to make that kind of a link to newFamilySearch?

Last I heard, someone was working on a API for Mac, but there was nothing that looked to be for the end user.

I'm sure the church would love to have someone - it's just waiting for a software vendor to sign up.

FamilyInsight has a Mac version that sync's with nFS.

Ah, I forgot that Ohana was doing a Mac version.

Mac FamilyTree does not mind that I mention that they have been making progress with our FamilySearch APIs. I presented their product and the plans to interface with new FamilySearch at a seminar this summer at the AppleStore in Salt Lake City. No talk about when but I can say they are serious.
