Default Ancestry DNA App

I assume there is a way of viewing other DNA tests that you manage, rather than your own, in the app but this is the first time I've tried it, so not very familiar with it.
I cannot find this app to download onto my mobile what is it actually named.

I can see a genetic one but not ethnicity, am I being really thick?

It's called AncestryDNA - Genetic Testing in the Google Play store (for Android), Maggie. Don't know whether it has a different name on other OS's.

It doesn't give anymore functionality than you get on desktop, you can compare ethnicity with a match on there.

The question I was originally answering was how to find a list of which matches have a particular ethnicity without having to check each one, Maggie.
