I have used v9 for several years; they now want the GBP equivalent of USD 49.95 to 'upgrade'.

Can anyone compare this with MacFamilyTree which is half the price. Thanks.

From MacFamilyTree Developer: Both apps are available as free demo versions. I would suggest that you download both apps, compare them according to your needs and buy the one you're most comfortable with.

Odd that the MacUpdate notice for 10.0.4 is just now (1/19/13) coming out when 10.0.4 was released 3 months ago (9/17/12). That said, this is a terrific app that I've used for many years, and would be lost without it. However, there is one bug (crashes on some copy/paste actions) that's driving me crazy!

I have used Reunion from version 4.0 (Apple IIe days). The 9.0 version is a Mac only application which I truly enjoy. Most of your questions can be answered at:
If you have specific questions there is a technical support link which has always been responsive.
It is a solid piece of software for which so far I have never lost data.
My only disappointment is the "dual entry" which is required if you are using Ancestry.com. This issue cannot be corrected because Ancestry does not open its software doors to competing vendors.
I also have the iPhone version which is equally stable and plan to buy the iPad ver. shortly.

Twice as expensive as the competition, and a demo so crippled that you can't make any kind of informed decision. I can't throw that much money at a genealogy app without even knowing how it handles a GEDCOM import.

The automatic source feature only works for adding new persons' names - so when you are entering a bunch of details from a single source, you have to select it again for every fact. iFamily handles this much better, allowing you to set an active source and have all entries default to it. The Reunion set up is probably good for people who like to pick a person then add each detail for them, but if your workflow is to start with a source and then add each detail for all the people it references, Reunion would get very tedious.

Does it open .ftw (Family Tree Maker) files?

No, Reunion doesn't open native Family Tree Maker files. You need to export then import them in GEDCOM format.

Great program! I've used it for years and all versions have been great. Now I look forward to a iPhone version that syncs with this one :-)

A very good app. Native OS X, very stable, many features and simple to use. (I love the brushed metal interface and will miss it in Leopard.)

Some remarks:
- I'm quite sure you will sell a lot more if you reduce your price to MFT+$20
- the icon of the app itself is soooo ugly (which is strange since all the icons within the app are beautiful)

Feature request:
- How about some Google Earth integration? A great feature included in MFT since its last update.

At $60 for an upgrade, this would have to be twice the program it was before and it is not. Rewriting it to work natively on Intel is not worth any upgrade price since it already worked. Not enough new features for the price. For that price I will look for another program first. Still using 8 till it stops working all together.

Great concept. Ugly, really, really ugly GUI. So ugly I can't use use even though it's full of features and is simple to use.
