Shrubs is an easy to use application making it possible to carry your family tree with you at all times. It can import standard genealogy files (GEDCOM format) and allows you to quickly navigate through your tree at the touch of a finger.ANNOUNCEMENT…..

Uploading size issue write:
I purchased this software because I liked the features on this compared to their more expensive $14.95 competitor. The fact that it had a note pad for family notes and it had color designation for female & male individuals was a plus. Problem was, I did not see that they only could handle up to a 4 GB upload. Being that I had 5.76 I could not successfully upload my tree. I emailed tech support (which should be an email address which is easier to find) and got an immediate response. THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT TO KNOW when buying any software. I was told that they are working on a newer version which WILL allow the larger uploads. I think then, they will command this App space.
Nice program, easy to use, does all the basics. It provides a database in your pocket. NOTE: as specified in the description, it does not import text notes or "unusual" tags. Imports birth/marriage/deaths just fine but tags such as "enlisted" will show as "other." Not a problem, in my opinion. Unlike other reviewer, I had no problem importing a file name that ends in ".GED". I did not rename it to ".TXT". I like the program.
Great way to carry around your Family Tree
Ver 2.2 I wish all software would update and install so easy! Adding the "notes" feature brings Shrubs as close as possible to an "on the go" way of adding new data and then copying that data when you return home (to your normal full feature genealogy software). I wish I could give 4.5 stars! The only reason I don't give it a 5 Star rating is that it doesn't automatically sync the database when you have updates from the field. Someday.... Still the BEST genealogy database program, for Windows users, for the Touch!~
Ver 2.1 I just upgraded to this new version and it is a GREAT step forward! You can now turn your Touch sideways for viewing trees, and the sources, events are all sorted fine! I like the new layout and will not look backwards in time at the original Ver. 1 layout. It is progress in the RIGHT direction... making things better. If you are a Windows genealoically based researcher, then this is a MUST for you! Until the day that someone, maybe Bonoit, makes a version where you can actually input and update your family tree in the Touch/IPhone (and sync back to your home windows computer) as you travel this the BEST next thing for us Windows users!
I've exported my family tree to my PALM via PAF in the past, and now that I've moved to the Touch I was looking for a program to transfer my research to it. While the applicatoin is not perfect, Benoit responds so FAST to questions that it is a "must buy" item if you are into genealogy! It is a "reader" program so you can't enter new data, but so far there is no application available for us Windows people that allows input (genealogical information) directly into the Touch. It is really handy when you are visiting relatives and they ask the "When was Aunt Bertha married to Billy Joe" question... AND it displays a family group like it should be!
