Way to go, Bruce & Michael! It took me less than 5 minutes to download the Android App, move my database into the RootsMagic folder on Dropbox and bring up my database on my Android smartphone.

I haven’t explored all the options yet, but what I see looks great!

Keep up the great work!

Just downloaded RootsMagic onto my Droid. First, a huge Thank You for keeping it free of charge! I am so excited to *finally* have my database with sources and media gallery at my fingertips. I now only need to remember to carry my phone charger with me.
Thank you!

I love Roots Magic and this makes it even better. I am so going to show this to my Family History class this week. Thank you so much for all you do.
