Search interface for OS X Address Book.

What is TapDex for Mac

TapDex gives you a quick and simple search interface to your Mac OS X's Address Book. Tap the hot key and up pops a search window, start typing to narrow down your search.

TapDex is small, fast and takes up very little resources. It is designed to run in the background (yes, it can run without a Dock icon) and activated with a hot key. Customize it to auto-launch on log in and all your Address Book contacts will always be one tap away!

TapDex is one of my absolutely essential startup items. I'm sorry to see that YellowMug has abandoned TapDex, but happy to see that it is still available to download here & there on the 'net. I customized my TapDex hotkeys to be Control-Option-A, and I use those keys quite a bit. When an address comes up, you can right-click on various parts of the contact entry to copy the text you've right-clicked on, or open a link in a browser or open a map in a browser when you right-click on a contact's physical address. TapDex is such a fantastic background app to have & use that I am frankly bewildered that YellowMug has abandoned it! Download it.... Install it (it installs as a Preferences Pane)..... Try it... You'll love it. Kevin Kendall

The new TapDex, invoked by easiest of all keystrokes F1, is no better, IT is all GREAT. Sorry for shouting, it's in partial answer to comment near top, Wjb3wvu commented on 15 Jun 2010. How can you comment, especially querulously, dear boy, if you have not downloaded a FREE app? From Launch on Startup TapDex even flashes a screen to remind you of F1. Type in any words you think are in 'A B" entry and you hit Return and tap arrows to go down list to your target. Glad to read most think TapDex is invaluable every day. As long as the person and phone are in Address Book, TapDex finds preliminary info such as Tel and Email. Click another window and TapDex is gone. But of course you will have to wait on Address Book if you want spouse's name and birthdate. On the phone or the wife asks [waltzes-in] for a someone's number I use TapDex and give the info as if by a magician. Please get TapDex. No Mac should be without Yellow Mug’s TapDex. & free. I don't know what the paid Pro version does or if I already paid $4.95 for Pro, the free version just works anyway like magic. NB TapDex is a superlative use of 'tight' code by Jay Teo, the real wizard. Adrien UK

Fantastic app. Use it several times every day. Much more convenient than clumsy Address Book, especially the crippled Lion version.

Great app. Just one regret: the lack of an "add new contact" button.

Excellent app. Just a couple of suggestion: 1. Note field multi line with text wrap 2. Applescript basic support (just to use phone numbers with dial applications, etc.)

I guess I don't really understand this app either. Doesn't the Address Book Dashboard widget do the same thing? Using a hotkey? Just as fast? It does for me.

What am I missing? I'm serious here... how long does it take to open Address Book? One second? How much time can this app save? Admittedly, I have not used the app, but that's because I see no advantage over just opening Address Book. Fill me in.
