The blue italic text corresponds to the optional Free Text Labels on some symbols. The second image shows the genogram compared to the entire canvas size
Some examples of floating menus and drag to connect relationships operation with the on-screen assistant on.
Dates input can be done with or without the on-screen keyboard.
The screens iGenogram shows to let users choose types for Couples, Individuals, Emotional and Family Relationships.
In addition to what shown in the Genogram, iGenogram manages a list of Events and Notes to record sessions and individuals or relationships events and to analyze eventual chronological coincidences among them.
iGenogram lets you produce printed documentation, complete of all the notes not included in the Genogram.
If your iPad isn't connected to a printer or if you want to send your documentation to another computer you can always use the Report Export Function.
In case of need, you can send the complete editable document by eMail so that the receiving iPad can open and edit it (need an updated copy of iGenogram installed).
In most word processing Apps, you can directly past the Diagram using "Copy & Paste" from the Preview.
With the help of a preview dialog, iGenogram lets you define on how many pages you want to split your diagram and produces a PDF of the splitted pages.
Splitted pages have also a confortable numbering system to recompose the print and a well defined rectangle to easily connect adjacent pages.
As for the PDF report, you can send by eMail the Diagram PDF and use a computer connected to a printer to obtain your printed genogram.
Can I use iGenogram on my Mac or PC?
No, iGenogram currently only runs on iPad. Maybe in a not so far future iLogoTec will issue a Mac version but for now iPad is the unique platform supported.
Is the standard notation used by iGenogram complete?
The standard notation has a lot of variants and was designed having in mind freehand drawing so, iGenogram doesn't support the complete standard. Some examples of what isn't (still) supported are:
Can I customize the notation and introduce new symbols?
No, at the current stage it is still not possible to introduce new symbols. We plan to introduce this feature in a future release however, today the Free Text Label can be used to represent particular situations.
I want to buy a considerable number of copies, can I have a discount?
The App Store has a Volume Purchase Program for Business please head to the link for more info.
Can I use iGenograms to represent an arbitrarily large genogram?
In the last release iGenogram increased its original canvas size of almost 6 times introducing a proprietary technology to overcome the memory limits of a portable device.
However even the latest release has some (very large) limits, to have an idea of the size of the canvas you can imagine that its width can accomodate without overposing about 70 Individuals symbols complete of their free text labels (140 without the label but, complete of name, dates, etc..) and its height about 50.
The first screenshot shows an example of the canvas size with two images of the same genogram at different zoom levels.
Does iGenogram provide a backup functionality?
As most, if not all, other iPad Apps, an Apple standard procedure exists to create and manage backups.
Although you can use the eMail Export function to externally save copies of your most important documents, it is highly recommended to periodically create backup copies using the standard Apple procedure. iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes.
Will iGenogram teach me how to make genograms?
No, iGenogram will not teach you how to draw a genogram, like a Word Processor will not teach you how to write a book.
Although genogram basics are not too complex, teaching them is out of the scope of iGenogram.
If you are interested in learning about genograms theory, consider to ask help to a specialist, read one of the books on the argument or head to one of the many resources available on the Web.
