The listing at Google shows that AdiumBook 1.5 does run on Tiger and Leopard, and it does work on my G5 2.0DP running 10.4.11 so apparently it's mismarked here on MacUpdate.

Having said that, it's functionality is limited. There were Address Book contacts that it would not see, and Adium contacts that it did see that I deleted years ago. Sometimes it would not allow me to copy a picture from Adium to AB, and it doesn't let you copy a picture from AB to Adium (although you can do this in Adium preferences). It's statistics said that it saved me 16 minutes, but I think that's over optimistic. Also, after I authorized it to check for updates it froze and I had to relaunch it.

Overall it is useful, but not quite as useful as I had hoped.

Rather annoying that it requires Leopard when Adium itself runs fine on Tiger. What is it doing that actually requires features of Leopard?

As you can see in the “Whats new” section, this version of AdiumBook had to be completely rewritten for Adium 1.2 - which is Leopard only: “Code updated to support the new Adium version 1.2 (Leopard only by now”. It also says that for Adium 1.2 the scripting part of Adium has undergone major changes…

oops, sorry, just checked and realized that Adium 1.2.x runs under Tiger too. My fault - no idea why AdiumBook then runs under Leopard only. Perhaps because of changes to Address Book and it being too hard to support both Tiger and Leopard Address Book?

Adium is the only contextual chat client I use and I was looking forward to trying AdiumBook so sync contacts I have in Adium but not in Address Book. Unfortunately I can't do this because AdiumBook requires Leopard. That really is too bad.

Why do so many 3rd party apps these days only support one version of the OS? Used to be that most 3rd party apps would support 10.2, 10.3, and 10.4 all at once. What gives with 10.5? Is it something Apple has done in the background to "encourage" people to "upgrade" to Leopard? Is this some sort of agreement between Apple and shareware/commercial developers?

I use this to put all my MSN contacts in Address Book. Very useful, considering I'm not stupid enough to use Hotmail. Great app. The controls were a little bit confusing at first- maybe you should add instructions or something?

May I ask what the point of this program is?

Adium already syncs its contacts with the address book.

Adium imports contacts from Address Book but it does not sync contacts with Address Book. Big difference.

Funny feature would be to just drag 'n' drop all the info onto the right places, like the arrows on your site seem to point out ^^

Quite nifty looking further :)
