Ancestry.com now has an App for Windows 8 offering a quick and easy way to view and share your family tree right from your desktop.
The App was released into the new Windows Store during the first two weeks of this month and provides an attractive and innovated way to experience and display your tree.
Since editing is not supported yet, you need to go to launch points that take you to Ancestry.com on the web. Any changes you make to your online tree on Ancestry.com will show up back in your desktop application.
The Ancestry App for Windows 8 has four main areas. Click on Ancestry App for Windows 8 to learn more about the four main areas and view some screen shots.
