This little application which runs in the menubar - does exactly what I need - it updates additional information into my contacts.

The search sites are for Sweden at this point - I live there, so it works great for me. We are very lucky to have a couple of websites, where it is easy to do lookups.
However, the way it is set up makes it is very easy to add definitions for other sites - I added one for the UK myself (even though the UK is not as search friendly) - using RoyalMail to do postcodes & BT for numbers.

I'd been using Ovolabs phlink, with an applescript, to do caller lookups, which then add the name - hopefully, I can now use this to complete the vcard info (with a bit of tweaking to include it in my workflow).

Given that it is only at 0.9.1 - it can only get better. Free is even better.

WHY do you rate a software with one (1) star just because it doesn't work in your country? Really bad manners, the world is much bigger than "na".

If it's advertised as being available for my country, and it doesn't work in my country, that's an EPIC FAIL. Get over yourself.

As supplied, this doesn't work for North American names. Fail. (if you live in NA.)

Point taken. You can now download a site configuration that should work in the US.

Can't comment on it very much or write a review as the product is not configured to work with North American addresses. All of the query sites are European. If you want it to work for US Contacts you will have to do the research and add a site that supports US contacts.

Given the version number indicates possible beta product or Shareware in the future, with no cost indicated as yet, frankly I have better things to devote my time to right now then to try and get this product working for US contacts.
