BusyContacts is a contact manager for OS X that makes creating, finding, and managing contacts faster and more efficient.

BusyContacts 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.


Contacts can be displayed in two views: A single column list view, or a multi-column table view that allows you to control the columns displayed (e.g. company, last name, first name, email, phone, etc.) and the sort order.


Tags are an extremely flexible way to manage contacts in BusyContacts. You can assign multiple tags to each contact and a tag cloud allows you to easily filter the list of contacts by tag (e.g. family, client, prospect, coworker, etc.).


The Activity List shows a chronological listing of activities associated with the selected contact including meetings, to dos and other calendar events, communication through email and messaging, and social network posts.


BusyContacts integrates with BusyCal allowing you to link contacts to events and to dos in your calendar, providing flexible CRM capabilities for scheduling meetings, follow up tasks, and tracking past activities.


BusyContacts syncs with leading social networks including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, allowing you to integrate photos, birthdays and other information from social networks with your contacts.


Smart Filters are a powerful tool for filtering contacts and creating saved searches that can be applied with a single click. You can create Smart Filters to display contacts that match certain conditions, such as a text string, tag, or birthdate. Or you can create Smart Filters to remember view settings such as columns displayed and sort order.


BusyContacts syncs with all leading cloud services including iCloud, Google, Exchange, and other CardDAV servers, and syncs with the built-in Contacts app on OS X and iOS.


BusyContacts allows you to share address books with other BusyContacts users with read-only or read/write privileges. Address Books can be shared through Exchange, Fruux, Kerio, over the LAN, and through other CardDAV servers that support sharing.


Release Notes:

• Keychain/authentication improvements
• Fixed photo cropping and scaling issues
• Cancel previous spotlight search when spawning a new one
• Other miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements

Best Software Ever Downloaded - Busy Contacts takes the MAC contacts and puts it on steriods. The reason I like this so much is it used the same database that Apple uses, so while using this program you have all the extended features but your database is still compatible with Contacts, and my IPhone. So when I make a change it also shows up on my IPhone, and the shipping software I use for both the USPS and UPS. I have been waiting years for a program like this. Other programs all they do is import your contacts and use their own proprietory database making it useless outside of their program. Keep up the good work!!

Do not purchase - This is no better than contacts and you pay 50.00 for nothing. Then no one responds to your emails.

Review by Colorado diva

Finally a CRM that integrates perfectly with Exchange - I host all my contacts on an Exchange server. I have around 2,000 contacts and the program that came with the Mac would crash all the time. It also wasn’t very robust in that I couldn’t categorize my clients other than putting them in groups, without any color coding. With Busy contacts, I have all my contacts tagged with color codes, the program pulls in all the emails and messages I have sent them ever, and I can easily create new meetings and events. I love this program. And no crashing - yet.
