BusyContacts for Mac

19 July 2021

Fast, efficient contact manager.

What is BusyContacts for Mac

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.
  • Sharing -- BusyContacts allows you to share address books with read-only or read/write privileges through Exchange, Fruux, LAN, and other CardDAV servers.

Very Disappointed. I love both BusyContacts and BusyCal. BUT... I'm not looking for a new product. This was a good product for the price when I could buy it and upgrade when there was a worthwhile product feature update. However, 2 things have happened the past year that have turned me off. 1) They have gone to a subscription based program. This is fine for some things, but this is basically a minor upgrade to the free calendar and contact programs that come on the Mac. With that said, I like the additional stuff, but they haven't made any real improvements to functionality in some time. Sure they make it look a little nicer, but the major function change was actually the lose of the ability to see all of the emails for a contact. I know this was based on a chance Apple made, but it was still a feature I paid for that no longer exists. By allowing me to pay for upgrades that I see value in, it keeps us both honest - they need to keep working if they want me to keep paying. 2) I'm still on the non-subscription version that I PAID FOR IN FULL. It's mine and I can use it as long as I want because I paid for it. They acknowledged this and I acknowledge that I wont get any more updates - that the way software has always worked. But a couple months ago I started getting a pop-up that asks me to pay to upgrade to the new version. I understand this - it's how hey sell the new version. However, the pop-up is persistent and wont allow you to use the software (actually locks you out of using it) until you either wait a set amount amount of time - no idea how long, but minutes! - or click on the link to see the upgrade info. This is akin to holding the software that I have paid for - and my contracts - hostage while they try to sell me. I'm a business owner and I use to put this on all our companies laptops and recommend this software to everyone I knew. I'm now looking for a replacement - or we'll just use the Mac software - and will ensure that everyone I recommended it to knows what my new recommendation will be.

I was with BusyCal and BusyContacts for years. Last time I purchased I failed to recognize it had change to a subscription model. I'm done sorry, on a few pieces of software work for me as a subscription. Moving on sadly after a long time customer with little change that warrants that kind of price increase.

Use to like BusyContact and BusyCal but didn't realize that they want $30 for EACH of their program every 18 Month which I am not prepared to pay. Looking for alternatives now. Also, I assume they'll go out of business soon which is another reason to start looking for something new but they were good while it lasted :(

Busy contacts having lost access to e-mails in Mail.app is a major, major setback. This function is mission-critical for me, and without it BusyContacts is almost the same as the MacOS in-built Contacts app. If the e-mail functionality was restored, it would be a 4-star plus app.

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.
