This was one of several apps that Jumsoft had developed that were very promising, but obviously got them in WAY over their heads. I traded lots of emails with them, they tried to help, but they couldn't get anything working right even with my demo.

Relationship is dead, along with the others — one of which was a banking product. I see they have something called Money which might be a resurrection of it, but I'd be leery.

About all they do now is templates for Mail, Pages, and the like. At least you can preview them and know what you're getting probably won't blow up on you.

R'ship is dead. The Jumsoft people told me this, which I couldn't figure out from their opaque site. Too bad--showed some potential.

Thanks for the heads-up, Ronr! I've disabled the listing.

Well, it works...
But it's unimaginative. Typically a "quick and dirty" soft...
Doesn't stimulate your mac attitude!
Just like every Jumsoft software I tried.

My e-mail offers this software for $19.99 "...for the next 22 hours..." but when you click on the link the offer is for $29.24, only 25% off instead of the 50% offer. What gives???

The 50% price reduction was only good for 24 hours. However as you've noticed, we have been able to offer the application at a 25% discount for the next 13 days! If you want to see our most current promo being sold for a 50% discount please visit www.mupromo.com

I switched to mac about 4 years ago because of their great reputation. I have 25 years of Sales / Biz dev experience and have even architected and implemented 2 major installations for my sales forces; one based on lotus notes circa early 1990's for a vendor product cataloging, configuration and order entry function for a global network systems integrator; and more recently a web based solution for a 40 person sales force.

I have tested everything on the market (both software and web services) multiple times and was a the point of either moving back to pc or hiring a team and building my own solution.

I tried Relationship v1 and it was ok, but installed v2 a few days ago and am extremely impressed. So far it is the only program that does exactly what i want it to do. Im sure I'll find some bugs, but so far, it synced my entire gmail mailbox - over 2000 emails faster than anything else has ever done. Highly recommended!

Is it multi-user?

@Woofbrands,
It's not multi-user. IIRC, Daylite is.

Also using the trial, and I think it's a fantastic little app. It's not a full-blown CRM imo, but rather 1/3 CRM, 1/3 GTD and 1/3 project management/organization; right now I'm using it to manage appointments, research/projects, and just a general all-around organizer, and I think if you're a freelancer who doesn't need an intensive CRM app this might be a good fit.

It's a lot more useful/powerful than I thought it would be and dead easy to use. I was testing out Process for project outlining/organizing as well and it was ok, but seemed ridiculously underpowered and redundant after I opened Relationship.

Definitely promising, like the other reviewers noted. It has a lot of room to grow without being useless on its own as it is now; absolutely worth a try, and since it's on sale on the App Store for $19 (as of today, 2/19, at least), I may just bite the bullet and buy it.

I agree, It is a promising application. I have tried it and I have some issues with the tiny size of the font in the main view of the projects and with the grey color in the task notes. Another main issue is the localization of the data. I have to copy them each time to transfer to my desk computer. These issues prevent me for the use of this application for my projects. I think they are easy to solve. These are the reasons why I only give 3 starts to Relationship

This looks very promising. I'm trialling it at the moment along with Contactizer Pro and I have to say this looks easier to use. It also now has a FREE iPhone app to compliment it. Well done to the dev team. Keep up the good work.

Getting better. So, if the folks at Jumsoft can make the calendar in Relationship seamlessly - and with no glitches whatsoever - work with iCal, why can't Soho Organizer or Contactizer Pro? I don't get it. An event I add to a calendar in Relationship automatically shows up in the corresponding calendar in iCal. Same thing with adding/editing contact information.

Relationship has really changed the way I work on projects and allows me to keep on top of things. Email and task integration could be better, though I do have my tasks in Omni Focus show up in iCal as events and these, in turn, show up in the Relationship Calendar.

Just a good app that will keep getting better!

Might be interesting - if it worked. As soon as I entered a new project, it repeatedly logjammed the CPU on re-opening and has failed to turn up for work since - and all I did was try it out with a simple one-stop project with an iCal link and references to a couple of emails. Guess I can uninstall and try again but - what the hell: if this is making my life easier, I'll stick to slate and chalk.

Mischivo had trouble on 04 Dec 2010
Currently using the trial and noticed the following,

one bug:
In the Template tab of the Preferences window, and also in the Contacts view the arrows immediately adjacent to the scrollbar (the down arrow for the top, the up arrow at the bottom) are blank.

calendar concern:
Multi-day all-day events are not shown to span the entire period for which they are designated. They are only shown as events for the first day in the period. This should be amended to behave similarly to iCal.

Relationship
Sophisticated look. Powerful contact and project management. New features make managing your business relationships easier than ever.

Features Include:
  • Complete Contact View: Your contacts are what drive your business forward-these are your clients, colleagues, and business partners. Relationship lets you capture a full contact picture instantly. In addition to the typical contact details (name, phone number, email address, etc.), Relationship displays the names of projects that involve your contact, meetings scheduled with your contact, and much more. Building strong, continuing relationships does not have to be difficult.
  • In-Depth Projects: See everything in one place as you manage your projects with Relationship. Link each project to contacts involved, events related, and tasks to be performed. Add relevant bookmarks, emails, sticky notes, and documents to make the project picture complete.
  • Every Task: Presents an effortless way of handling a variety of tasks that you face in your everyday activities. Tasks can be linked to relevant contacts and projects, providing you with a frame of reference that's richer and more functional than just a name and due date.
  • Event Calendar: Makes scheduling and remembering meetings and other events completely undemanding. The event feature records specifics about the time and place of each of your events and allows you to set up alarm reminders. If you have recurring events, you can choose to repeat them daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly.
  • Integrated Email: provides an easy and productive way to communicate with your customers, prospects, and colleagues. You can integrate your email accounts to send and receive messages directly in the application. To give your email messages a more powerful context, link them to relevant contacts or projects. Managing email marketing campaigns becomes a lot easier when you link Relationship's emailing and contact group features.
  • Browsing and Bookmarking: Emailing is not the only integrated communication tool in Relationship. There is also an embedded browser, which allows browsing the Web without leaving the application. Bookmarking lets you easily return to your favorite Web pages and link them to your selected contacts or projects.
  • Sticky Notes: Create casual sticky notes and link them to a contact or project in your database. Or use them independently of other functions. These notes are ideal for reminders and bits of data that do not fit anywhere else, but that are nevertheless valuable and cannot be lost.
  • Document Your Work: For further convenience, you can add spreadsheets, text documents, movies, sounds, and other files to Relationship. Keep them for future use or link them to your contacts and projects to create a more versatile context for your CRM activities.
