[prMac.com] London, England - The world's largest free collection of British Peerage lineage information is now available through an iPad app. MEA Mobile in collaboration with Darryl Lundy have produced the app based on Lundy's fourteen plus years of work.
Lundy has compiled a vast amount of information about the British Peerage and European royalty, harnessing new technology with every computing cycle. "I started off using FoxPro, then transitioned to making it available on the web, now I see the iPad as the perfect medium to explore this type of data." Digital maps enable users to explore genealogies across hundreds of years. "With such a volume of information, the presentation is critical," says Lundy, "Working with the team at MEA Mobile we developed an interface platform we're very proud of." Users navigate through an intuitive animated chart and can search by surname, location name, or via a map interface. "It's still a work in progress," explains Lundy "We'll be expanding and evolving on a regular basis and so look forward to feedback."
Users can see if any of their ancestors are listed among the aristocracy or see how many descendants Queen Victoria has alive today. Free access to the records is available through an ad supported version. A paid version without ads is also available. "We're excited to transition this unique part of history into the mobile space," says Bruce Seymour, Managing Director of MEA Mobile. "The thoroughness and dedication Darryl Lundy has committed to the Peerage project is extraordinary."
