iGenogram in action
This is the core function of iGenogram for iPad, here you can add, delete and move graphical shapes representing people or connect them with predefined symbolic lines representing family and emotional relationships.
A double tap is enough to insert a new genogram symbols and individual symbols can be easily moved with a finger touch.
Standard pinch gesture permits the zooming of the genogram to better interact with the symbols. Quick floating symbols menus allows to create and move connections and even the creation of new genogram symbols already connected.
Complete Undo/Redo is implemented by iGenogram for iPad and all the connections are automatically routed based on symbols positions. You will never need to move or adjust them.
Adding data to genogram symbols
A double tap on a genogram symbol leads to this editing screen (an individual in this screenshot) where you can enter details about the represented person or relationship.
The symbol type can be always changed so, in case of mistakes, it’s easy to choose among all available symbols type.
In case of individuals, birth and death date editing are assisted by the standard iPad date control and, when defined, will appear automatically in the diagram as well as in the overall chronological event list and in the PSD report.
The Events/Notes section is where you can record all the chronology of user defined events or notes about the person or relationship being described.
These annotations will also appear on the overall events/notes and on the PDF report.
Describing Event or taking notes.
Each Event/Note has a date a title and a free text description.
Automatically generated events can also be described, only their names can’t be changed.
Descriptions can be edited with very long texts as the form dynamically adapts itself to the text length.
Nothing lasts forever so, imposing a date not only for Events but also for Notes allows to properly maintain all the annotations and visualize them separately in the chronological context.
Of course, you can choose to overwrite, delete or modify them, it is up to you to decide how to keep everything documented and organized.
Examining the chronological list of events/notes
From this screen you can edit or delete all the events or notes (including the automatically generated).
Events/Notes added from this screen are not related to a specific entity and could be used to describe general events or notes.
An option to filter out the automatically generated events (births or deaths) is activated by a button on the bottom bar and can be used to focus on user generated records.
Producing PDF Reports
First page is occupied by the genogram diagram and the following pages contain all chronologically ordered Events/Notes data in a tabular form.
No information remains hidden in the App, everything is published.
In the preview screen, you can choose to send the report to the printer or attach it to a mail.
All PDF capable apps installed on your iPad will be shown on the menu so, you can use it to archive the file or export to other applications.
Choosing Genogram Symbol Types
Each time iGenogram for iPad asks you to choose a genogram symbol, it always present you the list of available options in a graphical way along with the descriptive names. You do not need to consult any other document source to produce a genogram.
