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

Ridiculous.

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.

I was a long time MFT user, and I spent a lot of time finding a replacement since MFT is pretty much completely dead for non-Mac App Store users. They will not sell or upgrade MFT anymore. You can only get it from Mac App Store, which after multiple bad experiences, I avoid at all cost. I will only purchase apps that I can buy without MAS or from the developer directly.
With all of that said, I just purchased a CD of Reunion 10. I had used an older version before MFT, and after a lot of testing I am very pleased to be back on Reunion.
Also, if you are interested in a free app that is not as pretty or polished, but seems to support most of the features and data, there's Gramps.
I hope that helps, but MFT was very bad to force all of their customers into a platform that they may not want, just to support icloud, which is not critical or even all that useful for this type of application.
Mac App Store has a lot of problems and a lot of people upset. It's beyond growing pains and leaning towards assimilation with terrible customer service and multiple issues that Apple will never get fixed. Also, you then have MFT unable to support their customers because Apple is the delivery system, and Apple took many months and never was able to fix simple issues that had my account locked out and my whole computer unable to update or access previous purchases.
This makes it so that even if you legally own something, like MFT, or any other App, if the MAS is not working, you can't get any support or access anything you have purchased, including no way yo install updates. There are too many hands in the pot and neither can really do anything about the other.
You end up powerless and locked out.
It's sad because MFT was a very nice application, but they made a really bad business decision and are totally unwilling to listen to customers. They are NOT flexible in any way.
Some companies actually sell on MAS, and still direct.
This is the first one that I have seen that simply cuts everyone off and says there is no other possible way to purchase their product.

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:
http://www.leisterpro.com/
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.

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.
