macfamily tree has a free demo. I hated the pedigree layout and did not like the software in general. topten dropped it from its best choices list.
macfamilytree is one of the seven or eight genealogy apps that I purchased at one point.
I use it from time to time to supplement roots magic, but would struggle to use it as a permanent alternative.
it has a mobile app that can be used to edit trees that integrates well with the desktop app
it has familysearch integration that works very differently to that in roots magic. It has a twostep workflow-
1. it produces a list of potential matches that you where you view and assign if you are convinced that your tree record and familysearch persona represent the same person
2. it produces lists of assigned familysearch personae where either 1. familysearch.org shows parents/children who arent in your tree or 2. the familysearch data has been changed and you then choose to accept individual facts using a somewhat pleasing UI. It feels like integrating familysearch facts is a slightly more pleasing operation.
i typically use mac family tree when i am researching a new line that may or may not turn out to be related to me and there is . alot of familysearch data vs the amount of ancestry.com data
1. I find the interface for viewing a tree confusing to navigate and wasteful of screen space - even my 5K iMac 27" screen feels cramped with it.
2. the duplicate search functionality is very time-consuming to use - much weaker than rootsmagics
3. the gedcom export uses a different tag for family-search-ID than rootsmagic, so I have to use a reformating script if i want to export a gedcom from macfamilytree and then import into rootsmagic
just my opinion
