Genealogy is all about family line, more of like the family tree. If you've seen a family tree, you'll be able to trace your ancestors and other people whom you are related with. The experience of tracing the family is pretty much difficult. You will have to rely on strong memory, otherwise you will have to write it down and preserve those papers to be passed on to the next generation. Nowadays that we are in the digital age, software developers created app to do this so that records will be stored digitally thus it makes it easier to process stuff.
The problems with those software today is that they run on computers like your typical desktop and laptops. During social gathering, you're not going to expect yourself bringing with you those devices and entering their names to the database. We're lucky today that smart phones have been more powerful than ever that you can do such stuff. So we thought of creating a simple light-weight mobile android application that would do this for you.

Okay, enough with the chitchat and proceed to the app.
Well, as you can see we our self-hosting this application. We need cash to buy a license and publish this to Google Play (and motivate us to keep supporting the application). Help us save funds!
So here's a short list of the things you can do with the application, the application does not need Internet connection to perform and all data are stored in your device.
|Feature||What it does|
|Add a relative||It's a core feature, you simply have to add relative information like their name, dad, and spouse. That's basically it, the rest is done by our graph algorithm. Requires long press on the name to show menu.|
|View relative details||Displays a report regarding a relative from his/her grand parents (including in-laws), parents (including in-laws), siblings (including half-brothers/sisters), and to grand children.|
|Search relative||Find things for you.|
|Relate relatives||Displays a report how two of your relatives are related.|
|Export/Import data to/from file||For back up purposes, saves/loads data to/from the 'Genealogy' directory.|
|Build Family Tree||Displays the family tree of a selected person until to its very last generation.|
|Store Photos||Take photo of each person in your family tree.|
Right, we don't want to hear you complaining about how bad and plain the user interface was done. We didn't care and had much time planning how good looking it is, but we cared more about how easy and useful it is. If you think you can do better, we have the source code open and free for use and modification. Just don't forget to link back to the original work.
