Importer for Contacts

1.5
25 October 2019

Import tabular data to Apple Contacts.

Overview

Importer for Contacts picks up where Apple Contacts left off by importing Excel files, CSV files, tab-delimited files, and vCards into "Contacts" with more options.

As a bonus, it can also convert CSV and Excel files to vCard files directly without the need to import them first. The app is also able to restore Address Book groups from vCards.

Features:

  • Imports Excel files (.xlsx), including embedded pictures
  • Imports vCards with automatic group restoration
  • Maps fields automatically and remembers field mappings for future imports.
  • Lets you save mappings to make repeated imports easier
  • Supports custom labels
  • Accepts CSV files that Apple’s Contacts app refuses to open
  • Can perform automatic group assignment. Groups that do not already exist will be created. In your import file, simply add a column with a comma-separated list of group names that the contact should be a member of.
  • Supports line breaks in CSV and tab-delimited text file fields (street addresses, notes, etc.) if the file is properly formatted
  • Fields not supported by Contacts can be added to the "Note" field
  • Comes with an interactive preview to make it easier to determine the character encoding of the import file - helpful if you don't know which encoding was used or if you have no idea what a character encoding is.

Importer for Contacts never does overwrite or delete existing contacts. Instead, old duplicates will be added to a group in Contacts, making it easy for you to remove them manually if the import worked right.

Why list an app for free if it requires payment to actually work? I guess it's another way to get around the lack of a trial version function in the App Store. Still, the price and feature options should be listed in the app description. Otherwise it looks like just another bate-and-switch scheme. Not good.

Please note that the app description clearly describes (and it did so from the very first minute on when this listing went live here on MU, on the MAS and on my website) that this is a freemium app and which limitations the free version does have. Please note also that it is beyond any developer's control how app stores and software listing sites do organize their categories, how they handle and display the different pricing models available today, and how much of an app description will be shown by default without the need to click on a fancy "More…" link that could reveal additional information.
Because the prices of the offered In App purchases may vary and because developers cannot edit app descriptions here on MU without providing a new update I do not display them here.

And yes, indeed, freemium apps are a way to offer something in the Mac App Store that comes close to a trial version -- something that I am constantly get asked for from App Store users almost every day although I am offering trial versions for years for all of my paid apps on my website and here on MU.
Amen.

Since enough people have asked for it, the app can now also be activated by purchasing a classic perpetual license.
