I just downloaded the RootsMagic app to my Galaxy S5 phone. I followed instructions and got my .rmgc file from dropbox. It worked for about 1 minute, then I got the message "unfortunately, RootsMagic has stopped".

I uninstalled the ap, deleted and reloaded my .rmgc file to dropbox, re-installed the app, followed directions again...same result!

Am I missing something, or is this a glitch in the software?

The RootsMagic Android app is not RootsMagic 4. You should post in the RootsMagic Apps/Android Forum. That said, RootsMagic reps have reported that a recent Android Operating System upgrade broke the RM App and that you will have to wait for development to issue a compatible update.

The new update, Version 1.2, for the Android app is now on Google Play.

It is working on my Galaxy S5, Lollipop 5.0 and Google Nexus 5, Lollipop 5.1.
