[prMac.com] Mainz, Germany - Synium Software announces the immediate availability of MacFamilyTree and Chronories on the Mac App Store. MacFamilyTree is the modern genealogy application for Mac OS X and is an easy way of recording cornerstones in a family history like persons, their relations, crucial events and preserving precious information for generations to come. The clearly structured charts and reports present a comprehensive overview of a person's origins and are ideally suited to be taken to the next family reunion. Support for the GEDCOM file standard allows collaboration with even remote family members. With Chronories, the diary gets written whether you contribute or not. In addition to writing your own entries, Chronories will gather for example local weather information, which websites you visited, e-mails you received, how long you've been working on your Mac and which applications were running.
"Interest in genealogy literally spans across generations while writing diaries is an important part of keeping track of our personal histories," said Mendel Kucharzeck, Synium's CEO. "The Mac App Store makes the purchase, installation and update process for MacFamilyTree and Chronories easier than ever before for our users."
MacFamilyTree lets you record your family relations with an easy-to-learn interface, create informative charts and reports, do statistical analysis and even publish your data as a website. Get an overview of where you hail from and maybe enthuse your relatives about exploring your family's past at your upcoming family reunion. If you own an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, the separate companion app MobileFamilyTree lets you take your data with you and edit whenever you come across new information. MacFamilyTree is based on the latest Mac OS X technologies for the best possible performance and reliability.
Chronories is a diary application even for people who usually don't write journals at all. When you launch Chronories, you don't start with a blank page; all the data it is set up to retrieve is already filled in. If you don't have anything hilarious or noteworthy to tell, at least quickly take a snapshot of yourself with your Mac's built-in FaceTime camera and tell Chronories how you felt today. After some time, the powerful charting feature gives you a solid impression of how many sunny days you've had, which applications you used the most or who you sent e-mails to. Chronories redefines writing and reading a diary.
