The Person view displays multiple names and nicknames, multimedia files, all the life events, personal attributes, and notes attached to this person. If a multimedia file is present it will have a chevron and a touch will display the file. For life events that have notes or sources a chevron is displayed and a touch opens the Sources view for that event.
sources view

The Sources view displays the details of the Notes or Sources attached to a life event or personal attribute.

index with search kinds

Tap the search bar and you can search for people by Lastname Firstname, Firstname Lastname or by both kinds of search together. Tapping a name opens the family view for the family of that person.
