Fast, efficient contact manager.

Overview

BusyContacts is a contact manager for OS X that makes creating, finding, and managing contacts faster and more efficient. It brings to contact management the same power, flexibility, and sharing capabilities that BusyCal users have enjoyed with their calendars. What's more, BusyContacts integrates seamlessly with BusyCal, forming a flexible, easy-to-use CRM solution that works the way you do.

BusyContacts syncs with the built-in Contacts app on OS X and iOS, and supports all leading cloud services, including iCloud, Google, Exchange, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Key Features
  • Customizable Views -- View contacts in a single-column Card View or multi-column List View.
  • Tags -- Tags can be used for grouping, filtering and coloring contacts.
  • Smart Filters -- Smart Filters are a powerful tool for filtering contacts, creating saved searches, and even applying custom view settings in the List View.
  • BusyCal integration -- BusyContacts integrates with BusyCal by linking contacts to events in your calendar, providing flexible CRM capabilities for tracking past and future activities.
  • Activity List -- The Activity List displays activities associated with the selected contact including calendar events, emails, messages, and recent social network posts.
  • Social-network integration -- BusyContacts syncs with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, combining contact information from each of these sources into a unified contact card.
  • Syncing -- BusyContacts syncs with the built-in Contacts app on OS X and iOS through all leading cloud services including iCloud, Google, Exchange, and other CardDAV servers.

I love BusyContacts since years and really couldn't work without it any more. Together with BusyCal it's a true killer combo in my daily work with the Mac. The only thing I would wish: BusyContacts' user interface design is a bit outdated and needs some work by a professional designer (like it happened with BusyCal some years ago). Nevertheless: Worth every penny…

Has anyone been having issues printing address labels out of BusyContacts? For some reason, it is always selecting one (and the wrong) card to print. Also, the fact that cards cannot be exported into a spreadsheet without using workarounds/other apps is a real bummer. This should be a norm.

It's broken with apple mail, as is Houdahspot as mail has moved its indexing to core.spotlight which has no public API however it functions perfectly using mailmate for email plus contacts and messages app both work fine.

Catalina has made this software nothing more than a roledex. Most of functionality is gone .

October 17, 2019: Catalina breaks core functionality of BusyContacts. If you need BusyContacts, especially for work, stay away from Mac OS X 10.15! The developer must have known this for quite a while and chose not to inform his customers well ahead. For details look here: https://support.busymac.com/help/112805

For me as a Senior Web Pro working with several Macs BusyContacts is just a Must-have like BusyCal – couldn't work without both any more.

I like BusyContacts but it really needs a menu option like Cardhop

For those who need users who need powerful contact management tools for business purposes, there are many far superior applications than BusyContacts for $50. For those of us who prefer more control and easier access to our contacts than Alfred or Launchbar provide. I would suggest trying Cardhop from Flexbits the makers of Fantastical the award calendar app.

Okay. Not sure about the blurb on the developer's site of BusyContacts being "The most powerful contact manager for macOS". I know there are more powerful CRMs such as SalesForce, and check out some of the CRMs at https://www.capterra.com/customer-relationship-management-software/. Even SUNRISE Contacts 2017 at http://www.sunrisepage.com/contacts/ (not mentioned here at MacUpdate) is a particularly attractive looking and effective CRM (works on macOS) and can do more than BusyContacts, and it just so happens to be free (you only pay about the same price to unlock lookup databases if you ever need to access them). But I guess each to their own. You will always find some people who will swear by some CRMs as the best (and most powerful as the case may be with this one), and others might think they are pretty mediocre. It all depends on what they want to do with a CRM.

If all you ever want to do is store some contacts and sync calendar events with Apple's own calendar.app (Yay! BusyContacts can do it), this one is fine. Not the prettiest of the bunch, but reasonable.

I would be interested in the app but for one thing--no local wifi syncing with the Contacts app. Like most apps that need to be synced, BusyContacts requires syncing over the web, which is a big no-no for me. I don't understand what the deal is--it should be a relatively straightforward task; if you can write code to sync over the cloud, surely you can write it to sync with a file that sits on the same computer. Puzzling.
