    "What is up lately with all these genealogy apps. Do I want to know where I come from maybe, am I willing to hear it non stop on tv um no. MyHeritage is a horrible app. While the base app is free most of the features are locked behind a paywall forcing users to pay for most of the services the app comes with. What good is a free app if everything is locked behind a paywall, its robbery to do that, no one should download this app."

    "Hate this! To do anything with this beyond the basic features, they force you to pay for it! Would love to know more about my ancestry but this feels like a scam! What a gip! Sorry, not buying it!"

    "RootsMagic is an okay genealogy app for iPhone. I like the way your family tree is displayed and how easy it is to get to details. However, there is no way to edit from your phone if some information is wrong or you've found more details. This app would be a lot more usable if there was a way to edit."

    "You can learn great things through genealogy. I find that this app isn't so much to find your ancestors. You can read some great inspiring stories though. Just depends what you wanna use it for."
