Hi all,


I am sure this topic has been covered before. In a number of situations the thumbnails displayed in the RM IOS app are next to useless. The details in certificates, tombstones etc cannot be seen in a thumbnail. I am sure it might be (technically) difficult to have the app expand thumbnails to full size but it would add enormous value to those that need to see the detail that thumbnails hide.

I would like to see that capability, too. The Ancestry app handles if beautifully. I'm unsure what's better: having the image files for the RootsMagic database on a server, as in the case of Ancestry, or have them stored in the mobile device. Whichever, there would need to be some sort of transformation of the database between the main computer and the mobile device.
