The Address Book of your Macintosh computer is a great tool to manage all of your bussiness or private contacts.

Unfortunately, from time to time, similar data gets saved in multiple card entries.

As an enhancement to Address Book, which allows to automatically join duplicates, this application helps to identify and delete duplicate entries step by step.

Addressbook Tool finds duplicates based on names, email- / postal-addresses or phone-numbers.

Once identified, Addressbook Tool allows to delete all selected entries with a single mouse click.

Addressbook Tool provides English and German Localizations.


Release Notes:

The program was expanded to include sandboxing.

The technology of Mac OS X ensures that Address Book tool can only access the address book. Access to other resources is not possible.

Useless. Doesn't work with iCloud. Very few features. - Even though I have only about 10-20 duplicates in my Address Book, it found hunreds because of iCloud and there was no way to tell it that iCloud was *supposed* to have a duplicate card for everyone. It doesn't show which groups the duplicates are in. It can't display cards side-by-side and allow editing from within the app. For each duplicate, the only options are "Delete in Address Book" or "Edit in Address Book". You can't do anything within the app except look at all the duplicates you have (somewhere). Even a free app should have more features. And without knowing where each duplicate is, this app is pretty useless.

Don't bother - Spent an hour selecting contacts, clicked delete and… nothing was deleted. Sigh.
