iGenogram allows users to create comprehensive diagrams for multiple families. Once they have created and named a family, users simply double-tap the blank screen to add an individual, choosing between living or dead males, females, pets, or individuals of unknown gender. The app also features symbols for pregnancy, miscarriage, and abortion.
Once they have added the symbols, users can then add the individual's name, date of birth and death, as well as add events and notes to the person's timeline. Each event has an area to add the date, title, and description. Events can also be added to the genogram as a whole.
Individuals can be connected through various relationships by simply tapping once on the symbol. A handy floating menu then appears. Users just hold the relationship they want to create and then drag the line to another individual to complete the relationship. If they have not yet created another individual, the relationship will create a spouse or parents to put on the other end of the connection.
Among the relationships on the menu are marriage, parental, and emotional relationships. The app features thirty different emotional relationships, such as indifference, friendship, love, or abuse, represented with various colors and line symbols on the chart. It also utilizes twenty different marriage-like relationships ranging from divorce and engagement to cohabitation and casual relationship.
The straightforward tapping and dragging controls of the application let users create their diagrams with ease, and the undo and redo buttons in the bottom left hand corner of the screen allow for easy recalling of recent or changed actions. A Help button at the top of the screen provides users with an extensive index of how to add individuals, edit relationships, move symbols, and much more.
Reports are simple to create with iGenogram; with one tap the application creates a PDF of the diagram and all notes that have been added to individuals and to the genogram as a whole. This PDF can then be printed or exported to Mail and other applications.
Professionals who must gain a clear understanding of family dynamics and relationships have found iGenogram invaluable. The app provides the perfect tool for social workers, family counselors, and therapists. Or individuals can create their own personal records of family life through the extensive options of emotional relationships.
"iGenogram opens up a new, powerful tool for use," commented Danilo Marinucci of iLogoTec. "The portability of this app, along with the easy controls, makes diagramming elegant and informative genograms simple."
