Mac based Roots Magic program

24 February 2013 - 11:34 PM

We own a Macintosh desktop computer and absolutely love it. I also love to do family history research. However, these 2 "loves" of mine don't coincide, they don't mesh, they just don't seem to get along very well. We have been researching available family history products for Mac computers and while there are a few, and some that look like they would perform well, I am looking for something that is designed to be a personal genealogy program that can sync with new family search and sync all LDS ordinance information, but it just doesn't exisit. There are so many options for windows based computers that allow for this. Currently the suggestion out there is to partition the Mac hard drive to be able to use these windows based programs, but that is not what I'm looking for, that is not what Mac users need. We need a program that is designed for the Mac and that is "fully certified" by family search where we can store our personal family history information to access and compare it to what is on the family search website, to be able to better perform the research that we are undertaking.
So my question, my hope is: When will there be a Roots Magic Mac program available with all of the available features in your windows based program? There is a definite need for such a program to be designed.
