I understand that this is beta, so I can't be too harsh. I mean, I can't even write apps yet, so you are doing something right.

I would say, though, that there are too many individual windows in this app.
The options you do have, grouping for instance, have too many options and quickly become confusing. Perhaps a list of the top five used groupings would be nice. Then you could have a "custom" grouping option or something to that effect.

As far as graphics are concerned, it felt a bit "classic". That might be what some people want, but I want to flaunt the fact that I have a rocking computer, no matter what I am doing. Sure in family history I will want it toned down, but I don't think classic is the way to go.

One really, really, really good thing you have, though, is file load time. I have a gedcom file with over 2000 individuals in it. It took other programs on this site over a minute, A MINUTE, to load. Your app took about a blink of my eyes. That's nice.

If you can streamline the interface, and add a solid eding function, while keeping the load time the way it is, I would buy this app.

It's fast, but does need a fair bit of memory. The input database is read pretty quickly; 500 kilobytes is interpreted in a second or two on the slowest PowerMac. When a GEDCOM file is opened SeeGEDCOMX displays a window containing a listing of the all the individuals in the file. This is called a Group view and looks a lot like a List View in the MacOS Finder. There are 'folder' icons for each surname, with drop triangles that you use to display more information. This is the starting point for browsing through the entire database. It's as easy as navigating in the Finder itself, or using a Web browser. SeeGEDCOMX has unusual and (in my opinion!) rather nice ways of extracting parts of a GEDCOM database whether as new GEDCOM files, reports for use with a word processor (RTF), or as plain text.

There is limited support for editing a GEDCOM document. This is an area where the program is being actively developed and feedback is requested.
