When the App Gallery first comes up, it shows some "New and Noteworthy" apps. Most of the ones shown are not new and some of the new ones are not shown either. It looks like the App Gallery itself needs some attention. I may be mistaken due to the fact that I haven' t looked at the App Gallery for a while.
That said, there is one "new" (at least new to me) app. It is called Place Research by FamilySearch. Here is a screen shot of the app's page.
This is an app or program, but it is really a link to the Place Research section of the FamilySearch.org website I have written about recently. Here is a screenshot of the program.
It is probably a good idea to list some of these website functions or sections as apps since there does not seem to be an obvious link to them within the website itself. The "app" is described as follows:
As time progresses places are built, destroyed, renamed or conquered. As researchers track family histories across centuries, it becomes important to track the historical context of places as well.
Place Research is a FamilySearch application which provides access to standardized information about locations. This information is used by several FamilySearch applications to assist researchers.From time to time I will return to the App Gallery to highlight additional offerings. We are rapidly coming up on RootsTech 2016 and I expect we will have several new additions after the Conference.
