Since my previous comment/question never got answered I assume that this application does not work properly. That makes it a 1/2 star application.

According to AddressBook Cleaner all of my 800+ contacts are existing twice, and AddressBook Cleaner suggests to delete all double records (whithout saying where they are stored).

However, none of my contacts is double in Contacts (OS X 10.8.2).

What is happening here?

" Free ($12.95)"

Is this some new definition of 'free' I was unaware of?

I need to delete/merge contacts without losing the Notes information. Is this possible with AddressBook Cleaner?

This piece of software undergoes nearly daily revisions! It suggests it is not stable, but a work in process.

Thank you for your comment.
We're trying to make the little app more useful and helpful. New features keep being implemented under requests from users' feedback. Some of the minor updates were for compatible to earlier Leopard users, which did not affect most of users.

I had a horrid mess when trying to use iCloud and Google Contacts. My address book had duplicate people, fields and I was looking at a lot of editing. I tried the "look for Duplicates" in address book and it consolidated most into a even bigger mess with many fields duplicated over and over.

Back to square one . I used this app and in a short time, my Address book was back to its pristine state and I only sync with iCloud contacts now.
Stability in one area is my only gripe, the update function does not seem to work and fails

thanks for your comment. I have one question, because I hear this phrase all the time and don't quite understand it. "now I only sync with iCloud contacts now." Does that mean you don't ever put a new contact and their information into your iPHone or iPad? If you do, isn't it transmitted to the cloud and then distributed to all devices you've set up the cloud? Please explain. My direct email address is fstop007@bellsouth.net. As an aside, how do I tell my email address not to put you in junk? Can I do that before you mail me? Do I set up as a preference not to junk anything? Happy Holidays.

What does this do that Address Book's built-in duplicate cleanup doesn't?

Besides cost $13 I mean. Just curious, seems pricey for the function.

Compare to the built-in "Look for Duplicates", the app provides flexible options for finding duplicates. And the built-in functionality gives only option to merge duplicates, this app actually deletes those duplicates unwanted.

When I open 1.127 It asks if I wish to check for updates automatically or manually. This radio box freezes the app and cannot be cancelled. The only way to quit the app is to do a force quit.

Before I make a review, I would like to point out what has happened to me.

I am running LION GM, and when I open your app, it first prompt me to pay. The window is slightly confusing...I suggest changing the CLOSE button, to say something like USE DEMO.

Putting that minor issue aside, when I run the app, it shows that I have four duplicates, but they all show up as blank. I know I have duplicates, as APPLE seems to replicate itself in various forms in my address book...(Possibly due to various syncs with exchange servers, cell phones, etc?) I also have other duplicates that i can see with a quick manual observation.

It does not tell me what the duplicates are. I assume that this is a bug? Is it an incompatiblilty?
