Ancestry.com subscribers now have another way to access their family tree, as the company has released the first beta version of their official Android app. At the moment, it's read only, meaning you can't modify information via the app, and the team has yet to implement many other necessary features such as searching for specific people in your tree.

The official description:

First beta release of the Ancestry app. Please submit feedback to androidteam@ancestry.com.

This is a pre-release product intended for testing only. The ability to add and edit people, search for people in your tree, and more will be available in the final release.

At this time you must be an Ancestry.com subscriber to use this app.

Despite this being a first release, the app has an impressive average of 4.5 stars, and reviewers seem to be impressed with the polish, given that this is a pre-release. To check it out, hit up the link below.

    I am a member of Ancestry and have an Android tablet. I tried to download this app and it would not download because it was not to an android phone. Is there any way I can use this on my tablet.

    I like the app. I see myself leaving a lot of paper at home when I do my research. Guess I should update my trees.

    I liked because it put all the pictures I have entered on ancestry.com into a folder under Gallery. Today I was going to go through the pictures and the folder has disappeard. Don't know why, yet.
