Address Book Scrubber will scour Mac OS X's Address Book data correcting some common problems. Specifically it can format 10-digit phone numbers in eirther a (999) 555-1212 or 999-555-1212 format. Additionally it will correct some common mistakes with labels such as "hOme" vs. "home" as well as some more subtle errors that can cause synching with an iPod or Palm to show no contact data on those devices.

What's New

Version 0.2.1 fixes the following:
  • Fixed bug where null phone numbers actually crashed the program. Ouch!
  • No longer tries to save changes when no changes were actually made.


Mac OS X 10.2 or later

Really need something that can scrub the address book for duplicates. As I use sync, it randomly duplicates addresses to the point where about 30% of my address book are duplicate entries. Oddly enough, Address Book leaves some entries alone while other will be duplicated 5 or 6 times… identical entries.

The address book duplicate finder cannot be trusted as it will combine "Bob R. Smith" and "Bob R. Smith" even when they have different email addresses. (aka the unique identifier of the email address is different and they are different people with other information in the vCard differing as well)

Very fast and simple. Doesn't do a lot, but does what it says.
