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:

• Fixes Google Login errors
• Fixes Exchange 2016 autodiscovery issues
• Pause auto-linker when duplicating or editing a card
• Fixes crash in auto-linker when creating a new card
• Other miscellaneous bug fixes

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!!

Review by NeoMacMan

The personal information manager I had been looking for - BusyContacts and BusyCal form an impressive duo in how they work together (and share data with Apple’s built-in applications). I just switched from a PC, where I had been managing contacts using Outlook 2010. I had been reluctant to switch over to a Mac, despite my wife’s cajoling me that “it just works,” because the Mac version of Outlook does not even let you see all the e-mail associated with a contact. BusyContacts does. Through its integration with BusyCal, you can see past and future activities instantly and elegantly on one screen. Spending just a few minutes with this software put my concerns to rest, and convinced me that real contact management is possible without subscribing to some overloaded CRM service.
