To my surprise, the number of free apps shown varied depending how you chose to view them.
Inputting FREE in the search form brings up an alphabetical list of 44 apps. But choosing the FREE filter instead produces an alphabetical list of 85 apps! What a difference!
Ancestral Quest / RootsMagic / Legacy Family Tree are Windows software programs able to sync a personal genealogy database with Family Tree without uploading a gedcom to PRF. (From personal experience, this is much quicker and easier than the gedcom option.) Each has a free version plus an inexpensive version with more capabilities. All three have good support organizations of their own. [AQ and RM are also available for Mac.]
