Wow. I can’t say enough about Geni, the new family tree application.
I heard about them a couple months ago, but didn’t pay much attention. I just read that they got $10 million in VC with a HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR valuation. Can’t say that I get that, but good for them. Piqued, went to check out the site.
I have to say, I loved it.
You build out your family tree by clicking little arrows. The cool part? Add people’s email addresses. They get an email about the service and can build out their node. Viral growth at its finest. This is the ultimate “why didn’t i think of that app”
I signed up yesterday and put a couple family members in. This morning I have 84 people in the tree! I expect a couple hundred by the end of the week.
My only gripe? No Export button (data portability please!) and no Print button. Hopefully they are both on the way.
