I use Legacy Family Tree to as my main data warehouse for all genealogy data. I export data from Legacy to my website’s TNG installation. I use the Legacy iPad app, “Families” but I’m not crazy about it.
August 6, 2017: I now have a local installation of TNG on a MacBook Pro. Although Legacy is a wonderful program, I’ve been annoyed with their lack of a Mac version, and their recent sale to MyHeritage finally prompted me to make the move. I installed MAMP on my machine, unzipped TNG and was immediately up and running. Wow! I’ve done a couple of template modifications and am looking into a few Mod installations. I have converted my online TNG installation to a text-only version. I wasn’t sure about copyright restrictions on some of my imagery. The source citations will still be enough for those interested in confirming my sources.
I can take my whole digital archive with me on my iPad using Documents.
I have full subscription access to Ancestry.
I have full subscription access to ArkivDigital, a must-have for serious research of original Swedish records.

I dabble with Clooz from time to time to keep my document sources organized. I’m not sure yet how committed I am to this software product; I’m still experimenting with it. UPDATE 7/6/2014: Now using Clooz quite regularly. See this page for some tips related to Swedish Church records. ANOTHER UPDATE 5/1/2016: I’ve abandoned Clooz. Too time-consuming.
