I scanned the posts in the sub but last I saw with this topic was 6 years ago and I know that technology moves much faster than that.
What computer programs are you guys using? Right now all of my data is stored in Ancestry.com and I don't want that long term for obvious reasons.
I was gifted Rootsmagic 7 almost a year ago and decided to invest my research in it, I am starting to regret that decision now as I am finding many unfinished and unpolished features. The current version is 4 years old, if I am correct, so there has been ample time to resolve and finish those problems, but this has not happened.
When I was kindly gifted the program I read a lot about Rootsmagic and a reputation of listening to their users and working with them, I can say personally I have found no evidence of that in recent years and now have the opinion this was a reputation earned many years ago and now a thing of the past with no bearing on todays development strategy.
On the positive side, and before you make your decision, the current version of Rootsmagic is 4 years old and a new version is probably due, although no one knows when. In theory that puts the current version maybe 3 years behind competition software in development terms so the next version may be a leap ahead, or maybe not, we will just have to wait and see. Personally I see great potential in Rootsmagic and find it quick to use but without that potential being brought out and realised it just continues to frustrate me through silly fundamental things like lack of sorting, lack of displayed information, limited charting capabilities, poor mapping interface etc.
I just saw a Top Ten Reviews link on Facebook this morning updated 1 Aug 2018 and Rootsmagic was rated #4. Diferent people have different opinions of these reviews and I have found the Rootsmagic user base very defensive and dismissive of the deficiencies of the program and that does not give me hope for the future.
