Would it be possible in a future release to include sorting/filtering by friend group? It would definately make a lot of adding easier for people like me who have a group for Mafia Wars people etc, that we don't really know or want imported. Atm I'd be stuck sifting through them all trying to find the people I actually want to add. Just a thought.

v1.4 runs (OS10.5.8) but doesn't login to FB even though I am logged-in in Firefox. Preferences either greyed out or won't open so no means of telling the app the login details. Caused a couple of crashes on quit.

Appears to work fine. I had one glitch with my custom settings not being applied the first time, but I redid it and it worked fine the second time.

You know what would rock VERY seriously?

A sync tool supporting:
- social websites (Facebook etc)
- email/calendar websites (Gmail, Yahoo, Zimbra)
- local social software suites (OSX's Address Book & iCal, Thunderbird, etc)
- Exchange

Imagine a one-click solution to sync profile icon, info, status for you and everyone else, plus calendar syncing.

I think I'd be ready to pay more than 50€ for that.

AddressBookSync does already a lot with Address Book - Facebook. But the concept can reach much further.

Works as described except that it pulls down the low resolution thumbs, not highest resolution pics as described (1.1.1.). Especially when cropping, low-resolutions thumbs are insufficient.

this worked PERFECTLY as of 12/8/08 on version 1.1.1 - photos synched up and correctly ignored the ones i told it to ignore, and it pulled in all sorts of birthdays...

the only bummer - and this has got ZERO to do with the dev - if a contact is set to show only a birthday without a year, as many folks do, then all of them come up as 2008

perhaps the ability to change that to -minus 15 or 20, assuming most facebook users are at least 15 or 20 years old??

Even though I login to my account it syncs with my daughter's account. She uses Safari, i use Firefox. As such, it makes this worthless to me.

Are you logged in as the user into the mac or is it your daughter's account? The program only syncs to the address book of the person currently logged in. Firefox vs. Safari should have nothing to do with it, whatever Facebook email/password you log in with will sync with the mac Address Book of whoever is logged in.

My daughter is logged in in Safari, but Safari is not open. I am logged in in Firefox and when the app, asks me to log-in, I log in as me, even though it brings up her account first (in a webkit auto-fill maybe?). Even though I sign in as myself the title bar clearly shows it is her account and the friends listed shows me the same. :-(

That's a really strange issue, sorry you are having trouble. I've tried replicating it but I'm unable to do so. I had another friend log into Facebook in Safari and used the Remember Me checkbox to save a cookie. I then closed Safari and ran AddressBookSync. My friend email started in the username field (this is to be expected) because the Facebook cookie was saved, but when I cleared it and put in my login info it showed my username in the title bar and my friend list.

I'm using the MkAbeFook framework for OS X to handle all of the Facebook login detals and API calls (http://pointlesscrap.net/mkabefook/). I'm trying to looking into any known issues with Safari cookies using this framework, but I haven't found anything yet.

Just as a test have you tried choosing Reset Safari... under the Safari menu to clear the cache/cookies and then run AddressBookSync and logged in?

Anyone else having similar issues with Facebook cookies in Safari?

I found a fix for me. I uninstalled Safari completely (by using AppCleaner.app) and then reinstalled it, and then AddressBookSync 1.1.1 would let me sync with my own Facebook account.

1. I customized some of the settings for matched contacts (e.g., zoom/crop) but did not sync.

2. I went over to the unmatched list and added them as new contacts.

3. I then went back to the matched list, and my custom settings were still visibly displayed.

4. I synced the matched set, and the custom settings were not applied.

5. I redid the custom settings, and then they synced fine.

Just put out a 1.1.1 update which fixes the bug which caused the program to crash on startup for users of 10.4. I'm sorry that got overlooked, I will be sure to test on Tiger before new releases from now on.
