Still does't work. What a shame, why even try selling software that is compatible?

I'm limping along with Contactizer Pro, OS 10.7, and experiencing crashes. The latest crash report I sent bounced back, identified as being spam. Sad.

Only purchase this software if you are interested in frustration, no support and a lame reason to spend over $100 on an application that is not completely functional. Rubbish!

Why is this still listed on MacUpdate?

Since the unethical dev is still suckering buyers for this, be forewarned it's a Dead App Walking. (See my review of July 17, 2012. I also have one for Contactizer Express.)

DO NOT BUY. It's abandonware!

A shame, because it had a lot going for it.

I happily used Contactizer for years, but now it crashes every time I launch it. There is no support any more.

It's too bad, because it was the best product out there, and there doesn't seem to be anything else I with which I can replace it.

Total PITA and ripoff. I hadn't used it for some time, then discovered a need for it, had it working before.

The bundled version I bought via MU would not open, my two choices were update or quit, even though I could see the app working behind the modal dialogue. Update doesn't recognise serial number from bundle version.

Website is useless. Found dmg of original purchased version, it won't work either.

MU should not be including this POS in bundles. Company is so concerned about someone using it without a license that a license holder can't use it either.

"Company is so concerned about someone using it without a license that a license holder can't use it either."

The above statement is right on the money. To think, this used to be a 5-star app, and now giving it a half-star is being generous. Sad! I would love to see it come to glory again, though. It used to be my most important utility, and it would be again if trust (and function) could be reestablished.

Saw they updated Contactizer Pro so I tried it to see if it could import my iCal and other data. It looked like it did import iCal data (at least the progress bars moved) but then it got stuck saving the database for ten minutes. I don't have but a few items in my calendars which meant to me Contactizer Pro was once again stuck on stupid. Into the AppZapper you go...

Looks like the developer doesn't test anything they produce...

I received mail today that MacBundler offered a new bundle. I was reallly surprised that MacBundles sells Contactizer. The development of this software seems pretty death as others remarked too. The forum was closed months ago, because users asked too more questions whats going on. No updates - no reply by email. No iOs version. Be carefully with your data, if you install this. Look at https://twitter.com/Contactizer - No tweet a long time...We are trying to find an alternative since months, but its pretty difficult. It could be daylite, but we didnt bring it to work. Cobook its another approach. At the moment there is no CRM for Mac, iPad and iPhone. We need to switch to webbased CRM. Just found by chance Zurmo.org and opencrmyesterday. Their development roadmap looks very promising. And its free.

Apparently you are unfamiliar with Daylite?

Vodproter replied on 28 May 2013
As I said - it could be daylite - but you need a mac server always onlne and it's time consuming to install and steep learning curve.
But finally we find alternative, its not real CRM but it helps what we need: TapForms - We used it first only on iPhone, now its also available on iPad, Mac and has iCloud sync.

Don Morris replied on 28 May 2013
Although you mentioned Daylite, I assumed you were unfamiliar with it because of the statement I quoted. Yes, as with any complex software (and Daylite is certainly much more complex -- and capable -- than TapForms) there is a learning curve. However, it's not necessary to be online at all times, since the database is stored locally on all your devices. (However, you'll want to sync your iOS devices before you turn off/sleep your Mac.)

Interesting to see that TapForms is now available for Mac. I tried the iPhone version to take legacy business data with me, but found that Bento for iPad (not the iPhone version, ack!) worked much better for me. I'd not use either for CRM, though -- Daylite is much more suited to that.

Perhaps I should add, there is no CRM for Mac, iPad and iPhone with iCloud sync. I know - you dont need to be online, but the server mac needs to be online. To install daylite you need to be a router expert. We installed daylite, but still are not convinced of it. We drop Bento - because TapForms has iCloud Sync over all devices. Nice read here: http://www.tapforms.com/2013/05/24/more-database-apps-on-ios/ and here http://inotes4you.com/2013/05/25/dbms-on-ios-devices-5/.

Wednesday, March 20, 9:22AM Contactizer 3.8.15 has been totally crippled for months - with no customer support.

Today, I received notice that Contactizer 3.8.16 was released, which I downloaded and installed.

Now, I cannot even enter a %@#$! task! WORTHLESS! WORTHLESS! WORTHLESS PIECE OF CRAP!

Give me something that works and I will change this review.

I can now enter a new task - perhaps it took a reboot, which I don't do often. I'm hoping that 3.8.16 now works on Mountain Lion... However, still no support, no forum as advertised.

After I use this for a few days, I may upgrade to a better review.

After upgrading to 3.8.4, Contactizer Pro will not launch on my system. Instead, an application called CrashCatcher launches. It's supposed to generate a report to be sent to the developer, but it does not seem to generate anything.
There's an option to "Quit Without Sending" but if I choose it and try to start Contactizer again, CrashCatcher launches instead.
I went back to 3.8.3 even though it has a few bugs.

Thanks. I went to their site and downloaded the version they have up...It is 3.8.3. After download and install (and trashing the previous update) things are back to normal.

My advice to others is to wait until this gets fixed before upgrading.

CAUTION!

This version requires a licence upgrade for pre-v3.5 licensees.
This is strange, given that we are not up to v4 yet. Be prepared to downgrade after trial period runs out.

STOP! If you are considering purchasing the MacUpdate promo to get this program. There seems to be a problem getting the license files emailed out. I followed the procedure to the letter and did not receive the license file and it has been over 24 hrs. First of all, I object to the concept of a license file, almost as much as I hate Adobe's activation system. There was no mention of this on the developer's website. It was a nasty surprise when I plugged in my newly purchased serial number and received a message that I will be emailed a license file. It is especially frustrating because I first demoed the app some time ago and I can't run it at all now because it has expired. I tried entering the serial number again and received a curt message that the license key had already been emailed to me. Oh, and of course I know to check my junk mail filter. I found a lost key form on the developer's website and submitted but the key was not immediately mailed to me. Do they actually have to have a human process these requests. That is just not acceptable in this day and age. So many developers now provide you with your license immediately after purchase that those of you who don't will fail to be competitive. I'm almost upset enough to onestar you. However, I will wait and do a real review if I get my license. Note that a few onestars will really hurt future sales. I purchase weekly on MacUpdate and weigh user ratings very heavily. I suspect that is true of others. Objective Decision, please get your act together because this looks like a sweet program (if I ever get my license).

If you bought this through MUPromo contact nate (at) macupdate (dot) com. He'll help you out, he manages things over at MUPromo. 5000+ people have received their licenses, but of course nothing's perfect so something may have gone awry for you. I am sure it will be squared away promptly!

Hi, I've also purchased the MU Promo Bundle (particularly for Contactizer Pro which is an amazing program) but have not yet received a license key and cannot use the program as my trial has expired ... However, given that I purchased it at 4:30am on a Saturday morning, I will give them until Monday morning to rectify the situation. I have purchased many online pieces of software where this was an automated process and I did not have to wait for 2 days to use a program that I purchased online.

Anyone know how to get the Project Manager to work? I want to buy the bundle for Contactizer alone, and while I love the UI and most of the features, the one that interests me the most is the Project Manager, but it seems very cumbersome and when you add a contact to a project it doesn't seem to show up in the contact's information (you can only see it through the project.) Am I missing something? Also, how do you attach notes to a project that's tied to the contact involved? I posted to the products forum and haven't got a single response. Any help would be appreciated.
