04 October 2019

Contacts and management tool.

Overview

SUNRISE Contacts 2019 is an organising tool for all things related to contacts (e.g., names and addresses) and general information (URLs, video files, documents etc.). Do you also have a business to run? This tool will cater to business users with built-in invoice maker or send direct to PayPal and QuickBooks, as well as a free currency converter (relying on the data supplied by the European Central Bank). And if you send direct to QuickBooks, you have access to the full Chart of Accounts.

Keep all your passwords and serial numbers secure and encrypted with a single password and easily copy them with a single click. Get quick access to useful UNIX commands for macOS users. Create labels. Write letters and other documents. Send and receive emails. Store unlimited URLs and use the built-in web browser to visit the URLs without ever having to retypre the addresses. Tthere are way too many features to mention here, so feel free to try them all out. And best of all, if you would like to see some changes, let us know. It is too easy for us to modify.

Notes from developer: The contacts database is free and unlimited. To open up more features and gain access to lookup databases (e.g., iTunes alternative music player, photo library organizer etc), feel free to purchase a license key. Finally, to install and bypass Gatekeeper's security notifications, download the software to your FAT32-formatted USB drive, remove it, and re-insert, and open the dmg file. You can copy the folder of databases to your hard disk. This will solve GateKeeper issues, including any attempts to lose the link between SUNRISE Contacts 2019.app and the primary database file (i.e., contacts.fmp12).

What's new in SUNRISE Contacts 2019

  • Added quick access to emails in contacts.fmp12 in any layout. Try Shift Command (or Ctrl for PC users) 5, choose your email account, and do your thing with email messages. Also available as a standalone menu command under Help.

A really nice app. Built on FileMaker Pro, but I imagine if it was made in Xcode, this would be even more flexible and outstanding. But even so, I am impressed with the improvements and features (I own a copy,, so I know what the lookups are like and the extra features I get). Not sure what Hal-Itosis is on about but I do find this app useful and gets updated just right.

For those who are not logged in and are seeing version 1.4.5 on this page, this is just to inform you that this software has been updated to version 2.0.1 as of 8 August 2019 and should be available when clicking the MacUpdate download link. Alternatively go straight to our web page link to grab the latest version. Changes for 2.0.1: * Fixed priority feature to Contacts layouts. * Solved the script conflict between priority script and the animation script. * Transferred latest theme styles to all databases. * Added graph showing the number of times all the songs were played in music.fmp12. * Fixed two errors in labels section and refined the labels layouts, including labels composer layouts that now appear as card layouts..

Every update we officially endorse and have uploaded has changes.

Question: Did you download from our web site?

"The thing to watch out for"
It is also possible one of the MacUpdate staff members has grabbed a copy of the software from our web site twice in very quick succession as soon as we uploaded the latest software version at a time when the version number we set for the software was not correct (by accident). We prefer the option of uploading ourselves on MacUpdate, or giving a delay prior to MacUpdate having our software uploaded straightaway to its servers. There is no option for this.

MacUpdate often thinks a different version number can mean changes, but in reality when we are told the runtime app needs the version number updated. If we don’t do it, the software does not appear on MacUpdate. And if we do change and later realise that wasn’t the correct version number, we have to change it, but by then MacUpdate has immediately uploaded it to its servers before we can tell MacUpdate not to do so., or think it won't be quick enough (actually MacUpdate is very quick nowadays) This requirement to change version number for MacUpdate is not seen on the PC side as those guys can tell the version number from the database file. Just one of those things that we have to keep to MacUpdate's high standards.

MacUpdate is not noted for being easy and flexible with developers. It either wants it its way or no way at all. And when you try to do it its way, it is usually a PITA and susceptible to making mistakes. And now we see the dreaded “Prove you are not a robot” and the lengthy process to prove we are human before we can log on to our MacUpdate account to respond to this message. MacUpdate has a long way to go before it can be considered a truly customer focussed business.

But if a change in one character for the version number does not explain the hash number, we suspect MacUpdate has made a mistake during its upload of our software.

NOTE: If you are not sure if the software you are getting is genuinely different, please download from our web site (link in top right corner of this page). And give us 24 hours of any new version update you see there if you have something automatic to pick up changes on the web site to make sure nothing else needs to be changed.

To SUNRISE representative:
We do not upload applications to our servers, only in very rare cases, when, for example, a developer asks us to. If you download software from MacUpdate and take a look at the download link in the "Downloads" section of your browser you would see the original developer's download link.
> MacUpdate often thinks a different version number can mean changes:
That's not something we think, it is a common sense rule for all of the developers community. If no changes were made, why make another build?
> And now we see the dreaded “Prove you are not a robot”:
This is a step made to prevent automated reviews and comments and since this was introduced I've noticed a drop of traffic from China, where most of such bots are ran from.
> MacUpdate is not noted for being easy and flexible with developers:
This is not true. We always look forward to developers and seek the best way to fit their needs/wants within our content standards. If you recall, earlier in our relationships there were a few disputes between us regarding the "description" field for your application. It did not meet our content standards, but later on we accepted minor-to-no corrections you've made so now you saying we are not developer-friendly is rather odd to be quite frankly.

These comments, mine and yours, are to be deleted in a few days to prevent any controversy.

It would appear that MacUpdate (Viktor) has commented to explain its position, and rightfully so. Thank you. This is much appreciated. As the comments will be deleted (to allow other users to read the comments), we will add further to our experiences with MacUpdate so hopefully things can run more smoothly in the future.

We understand from Viktor's comments that MacUpdate does not "think" when a version number update is made to our software. It is up to us to handle this aspect properly. Thanks. This tells us the process is very much automated and that if we have to make a change to the version number to meet MacUpdate's requirements (by changing in the Runtime app as well), it will be automatically updated on our MacUpdate page without our intervention.

Recommendation: To increase the flexibility of MacUpdate to the developer (at least for us anyway), we would like to see the option of updating our MacUpdate software listing manually when we believe a substantial change has been made. We note on occasions that whoever or whatever does the updating for us (it looks like it is the latter to explain why MacUpdate staff do not "think" when a version number change is made to a software) often leaves the comment in the What's Change section as "No notes were available at time this version was updated)\" or something along those lines. Well, that is because we haven't done the updating to our MacUpdate software listing ourselves. Well, we would like to make the updates ourselves on MacUpdate (and notify MacUpdate of the update when we are ready). Of course, we will naturally provide the details of what has changed as a normal part of our activities for the benefit of users.

We understand the new login procedure is thereto stop Chinese robots from doing things with your web site. Fair enough. But here is a common experience of a developer trying to login (we assume it happens to other developers too):

First login in procedure is to enter our login details (very carefully). We have done this.

Next we are asked, to prove we are not a robot, to do the following:

How many squares have vehicles?
How many squares have crosswalks?
Select all images with a storefront (Must wait until all images are displayed after selecting a number of squares)
Select all squares with vehicles.
Select all squares with traffic lights.
Select all images with a bus (Must wait until all images are displayed after selecting a number of squares)
Select all images with cars (Must wait until all images are displayed after selecting a number of squares)

Note how many times the developer has to be asked to identify vehicles or cars, as if the first time wasn’t convincing enough to MacUpdate.

Now MacUpdate claims it is happy the developer is not a robot and should allow login at this point. Well, the correct login details were entered (very carefully), but for some reason we are returned to the login page again (why?). Now we must do it again.

Login entered in again very carefully. Now, we are asked:

Select all images with crosswalks (Must wait for all images to be shown)
Select all images with a fire hydrant (Must wait for all images to be shown)
Select all images with bicycles (Must wait for all images to be shown)

Only three times? Thanks. We see MacUpdate "thinks" the developer is not a robot. Clicking the button does allow the developer to access the account with MacUpdate (yay!).

From what we can see, not only is your new approach a deterrent to Chinese robots, we think some developers would be put off by the lengthy "prove you are not a robot" procedure. By the end of it, some developers are already feeling like a robot.

Recommendation: Surely developers should not need to be asked more than twice to click on images to prove they are not a robot. This process can be simplified and streamlined to make it easier for developers to login to their account.

Viktor has also mentioned a few occasions where we have asked what was wrong with our description changes, and asked why MacUpdate made certain decisions with our software (which we only notice after it has been published online). We appreciate when you are able to explain some of the problems as MacUpdate sees it. In response to this, we note that there is a much stricter requirement at MacUpdate in the way descriptions are provided by developers compared to other software downl;oad sites. Fair enough. The standard is very high at MacUpdate and it is presumably there to make it easier for users to decide whether or not to download a software.. However, we have also kept at least a couple of emails and sample web page screenshots of this download page for our software where MacUpdate has made changes to our description on its own and later cannot explain why the changes were necessary. For example, there was one occasion where our software was described by MacUpdate as no longer being actively developed by the developer for all users to see without informing us of the change;. a problem of a malware signature detected by MacUpdate in a third-party browser app we supplied with our software to allow users to visit directly our web site (but was not informed until we asked and eventually learned what the problem was, but by then all users found out); as well as changing the price of our software without asking us if this is right.

Recommendation: If MacUpdate does want to make changes to our description or any other aspect of our software download page for whatever reason, please notify us prior to publishing the changes online. Also, put in a couple of buttons in the email asking us if the changes are approved or not. And if not, for us to ask why in the email. Better still, MacUpdate should already mention why in the email to the developer as this should usually be sufficient for developers to understand MacUpdate's policies, and makes MacUpdate fully open about its policies and the decisions it makes as a matter of consistency and fairness.

Thanks.

MacUpdate has automatically updated this listing (no input or control from us) Please note that a search for this software title will show version 4.2.0 at time of writing this comment, but it seems this page and the temporary listing at the home page is correctly showing version 4.2.7.

Version 4.2.7
While MacUpdate is quick to update software versions, getting up-to-date details on the version history for those not logged into MU can be a bit of an issue. So for those who can't tell what has changed in version 4.2.0:

1. The languages.fmp12 now contains 98 languages and more than 25,000 words/phrases each. Extra font files supplied to ensure some obscure characters display on your computer. Fully automatic and manual mass translation capabilities.

2. Added timeline to calendar in contacts.fmp12, together with some other refinements.

3. All databases will bring the current record to the visible layout window on re-sizing the window (prepares databases to solve an issue with objects that must hide at reduced window sizes, see music.fmp12 for an example).

Sorry about that. The software iis regularly used by our researchers and when we find something we are not happy with, we fix it. Not like Apple with its numerous long standing bugs in FileMaker Pro (e.g., GetNthRecord bug, graph bars not showing in the correct position for sorted records, poor resolution of web viewer when zoomed in, Data Viewer security bug, etc.) and not using the software intensively in-house by Apple developers and employees even when we and other developers notify the FileMaker Development team of the bugs. It can take quite easily up to 10 years, and even then developers are on the whim of Apple and whether it is in the mood of fixing the bugs or not (i.e., focus instead on introducing a couple of new features and sell hard at a very high price). So either you get expensive software upgraded once a year with few additional features but can't guarantee bugs will be fixed, or we regularly update with all known bugs fixed as well as provide new features. Difficult choice to make.

One other thing we have found is that when we don't notify MacUpdate of an update and just keep it to ourselves (other than a version number change and new download files on our web site), someone or something at MacUpdate automatically detects the change and present the update on the MacUpdate front page listing. Unfortunately that is something we cannot control. Hopefully one day MacUpdate can provide a check box option to tell MacUpdate not to automatically update and display until we give the official go ahead.

That's the nature of software listing web sites. Some will go to the nth degree in picking up changes and advertising this fact, while other sites can take weeks or months to show an update. Getting a balance between the two is a very hard thing to do for many web sites like MacUpdate.

As a case in point, we had no responsibility for notifying MacUpdate of version 4.1.5. It was quietly posted on our web site, and viola! About a week later here it is! Well, at least you can't say MacUodate is not on the ball with keeping people informed of the latest updates irrespective of whether we want it or not. Now MacUpdate has become too good at its job.
