The product should be good if it worked properly. The treesync does not work on large trees most of the time, however it is not clear whether this is poor server side capacity at ancestry, as they have had widely reported issues with their architecture and capacity. Many users are frustrated that ancestry keep giving out free trials weekends etc when unable to meet the needs of paying customers.
Often a trial period to ancestry included but unless prepared to maintain a subscription to ancestry the benefits of this product would be few. A new version should be available over the next few months which MAY be better. Allegedly the 2014 Windows version (out in USA) is much better, but I have not seen this myself or heard this from real customers yet.

I have bought FTW 2.0 (build 21.2.7) for Mac at the webshop of Nova Development. During the installation the license number showed to be invalid.
Ancestry Support forwarded my request to Nova Development (they have sold the product with an invalid key) and they don't respond to my requests by E-mail.
For the moment the product is useless without a valid license number...

Interesting...it seems the "owner" of this software is now Ancestry.com. They have the 2.0 version but for a discounted $52.49. However, if you go to Mackiev.com's store and look in their "Made By MacKiev", they still have Family Tree Maker 2 on sale but for $49.95.

Now you may say are these 2 separate products, but the box covers are the exact same. One has to wonder why MacKiev does not show this in the main site as a product yet still has it in their store...and for cheaper!

(Based off of version 2 21.2.6)

PROS: Ancestry.com syncing, fairly easy to use interface, fullscreen support, retina support. Loads of publishing options.
CONS: Constantly crashes during various operations including 'compacting' which is supposed to fix errors in the app. Poor support sometime taking up to 3 weeks for replies. Many publishing options are simply to static or don't work (causing crashes).
VERDICT: If you 'must' have an app that syncs with Ancestry.com this is to my knowledge your only choice. Beware however that this app feels like a 'port' rather than a 'native' mac app. Most definitely review the forums for this app as you'll see them littered with problems and angry users. Pass it up if you can, there are better and cheaper apps out there.

Please consider that there are people who want to test a software before they buy it.

No trial version, no sales at Macupdate.
