From Geni discussions via Mike Stangel:

"Anyone is welcome to try it out, but because it's not yet an official feature we are not accepting bug reports through Zendesk. We've also formalized the link ("appleseed" was just a development name), so the official link is: "

Thanks. This is great. I'll try it on my i-devices.

Thanks Private User. Right now the HTML5 tree is more tailored to tablet devices than smart phones, so please keep that in mind as you play with it.

Looks cool on Chrome!
Will the ancestry tree eventually crop up here too? Currently it's just the "parents and children" view.

There is a tree menu item on the node to change focus and number of displayed levels use your flash-tree setting.

Private User Likely not.

Any reason for that? It's looking pretty plain with just a white background.

Angus Wood-Salomon The HTML5 tree is still under active development. We'll soon enable a feature to make it your default view, under "Geni Labs". I'll be sure to keep everyone posted

If you are using a computer like a Mac or an Ipad or Iphone that would be the tree that will long as you wish to go on Geni

If by chance you are using a computer that is Microsoft Windows, make sure you have Adobe Flash player installed.

Is there any update on APIs for HTML5? Are there APIs available by which I can build/integrate family trees in my app which is targeted for IPad.

@Brian G. You went silent over 2 years ago after having promised to keep us updated on this. What is the status?

Brian is not longer working for Geni.

So who took over his responsibilities and obligations after him?

Are you have API's ready to create family tree on iPad hybrid app using HTML5?
