WHY do you keep f**king with what was once a superior little piece of software?

Several versions ago,it didn't even work. Support said, try a beta.

You keep changing the UI, for reasons unknown.

It used to default to Favorites list - now one has to bring up Tags and you have to choose a list - bummer. One more click.

i could go on - and what *is* that thing in the menubar? Just ... why.

I could go on

If you like CoBook.. beware before letting the AppStore update to new version

New interface released today.. sucks soooo bad. I can't even invoke the contextual menu for copying a field content anymore. Maybe I'll just go back to the regular Mac Address book. What a terrible update CoBook.

I feel my my girlfriend just cam home weighing 100lbs more and face full of ketchup an mayo.

Hello, can we say Menubar? Fast, configurable drop-down menus?No Dock icon? And more ...

So much less tedious than Address Book or Contacts. Cobook has worked brilliantly for me since first release. Don't know what the fuss is about.

As much as I like this app I can't justify the $20 price tag attached to it.

Looks like the price has come down as it shows $9.99 above.

I've been using it for some time and I second @Zo219's comments above. Syncs nicely with the iOS version as well.

I really wanted to like this app, and I did until it abruptly stopped syncing with my iCloud Contacts. Just one day, showed 0 contacts. (I have over 2,800 in the "Contacts" app). Emailed for help and after several days, got a question that was already answered in my first email. Resent the original question (ie WhatThe...) and after five days gave up. Deleted all Cobook files, re-downloaded and reinstalled. Worked again, for 24 hours, then - 0 contacts. I gave up, deleted the app. Fifteen bucks wasted, I guess.

I've given up on this. I don't want my contacts information sent anywhere dodgy (can you say mixpanel?), even if it claims to be "amalgamated" data. OS X Contacts app syncs via iCloud just fine.

Brilliantly crafted app which I now use for daily use. Can you consider adding a donation button? :)

While I think Cobook is a very nice app, like others here, I have to question what it really provides me that I don't already have. I kept it installed for a few months on my old Mac, but when I recently moved to a new iMac, I didn't install it and I really don't miss it at all.

One problem it has is with trying to link to a Google CardDAV account. I had lots of problems getting this to work, but finally did...but not without uttering many expletives. I have Apple Contacts working just fine with my Google Contacts using CardDAV and Cobook is supposed to see this and use that connection instead of "On My Mac"...but it doesn't. It wants to keep defaulting to "On My Mac", which in my case is empty.

The other thing I noted was the slow reply time to support emails. I understand it's a free app and I shouldn't expect an instantaneous reply...but they need to be a little bit faster.

The answer to your question is its phone-dialing ability, which makes up for a strange and sad omission in Contacts. If the user uses Contacts to STORE numbers, Apple needs to ask itself, isn't he also going to want it to DIAL numbers (this would have been a particularly good question to ask back when Apple marketed its own USB modem).

Newest version from App Store (1.3) will NOT load on 10.6 even though description says it is compatible. Had to completely delete, re-downloaded. Same thing. Totally deleted again, and will not try again unless newer version comes out.

Very interesting application indeed, but I am afraid that it conflicts mortally with LaunchBar. At least, on my iMac LB crashes. Not completely sure, but the developer should check it.

Something like "service error"?
