Until now, managing and interacting with your contacts has been a real frustration. Cardhop's magical parsing engine is incredibly intuitive, letting you search, add, edit, and interact with your contacts using a simple sentence!

Just type in "John G" and John's card will instantly appear. Or enter "Sarah Smith [email protected]" and Cardhop will add a new contact to Sarah's card. Or type in "call Michael S" and Cardhop will instantly start a phone call with Michael on your Mac or even directly on your iPhone!


• Open Cardhop with a single click or keystroke
• Type in the details for your contact and press return
• That's it!


• A beautiful and simple menu bar app, designed exclusively for macOS
• Instantly works with your existing macOS contacts, nothing to configure
• Groups: quickly toggle contact groups with a click
• Notes: a convenient and powerful way to add notes to your contacts, helping you to strengthen your relationships
• Recents: quickly interact with your recent contacts
• Birthdays: instantly see upcoming birthdays and easily send a wish on their special day
• iPhone and Bluetooth dialing
• macOS Action Extension
• Dark and light themes
• And much, much more!


• Quickly interact with your contacts with the following actions: Call, Copy, Directions, Email, FaceTime, FaceTime Audio, Large Type, Message, Skype, Telegram, Twitter, URL, and VoIP
• Simply enter an action or abbreviation (which you'll find in the Help Book by entering "?" or "help") followed by your contact's name and Cardhop will handle the rest
• Even better, some actions are flexible. For example, you can add a subject to an email by entering "email Kent Lunch tomorrow?" and the email including the subject will instantly appear, ready to go!
• Customizable quick actions are also available per contact, allowing for single-click actions

Cardhop — the contacts app you'll actually want to use.

- Improved editing of linked contacts that are on multiple accounts
- Added AppleScript support for sending text to Cardhop

Very Slick. - Just installed earlier today it, so my review time is limited, however… • Have watched all the tutorial videos. • Performed all the available actions. • Have modified the shortcut. • Have gone trough all preferences. • Have modified info via Contacts and CardHop at the same time. I even found an undocumented feature — which I will make regular use of. And I can say that this program is very efficient, fast, painless and looks to be a very low resource consumer. As someone who uses Contacts all day in & out this is already a productivity saver. — As I titled; it's ‘Very Slick'

Cardhop - I can’t open this app without it crashing. I have latest mac book pro latest OSX build. What’s most frustrating is I can’t find any place to call or email flexbits about the problem. I love and use Fantastical… as of now I am very disappointed, and hope whatever is going on gets fixed so I can actually try the program. Sorry for the bad news.

Version 1.0.2
Review by CardFlop

App is not yet viable for business use - I agree with other reviewers saying this is perhaps the easiest way to access existing contacts. It is quick and intuitive. That said, I also find entering new contact information from business cards or emails to be incredibly painful. The “magical parsing engine” doesn’t recognize labels for telephone numbers, doesn’t acknowledge line breaks, insists on defaulting all information to “Home” labels and, if there is a first, middle or last name shared with an existing contact, Cardhop will not allow you to add a new contact - only update an incorrect match to an older contact. It also can’t recognize city and country names (at least non-US names, in my experience), despite having address formats to customize for nearly every country in the world. The most recent update - Version 1.0.2 - seems to have introduced even more pain. Changing labels for phone numbers frequently deletes the number just entered, and I find the labels reverting back after the card is closed. What a nightmare! The developers asked for more information as a follow-up to my first suggestion that their parsing is ineffective. They get points for that. I have just supplied some concrete examples, and if they come back with improvements, I’d be happy to revise the rating. If you have no need to enter new contacts, perhaps this is your App. But for that purpose alone, look to something else.

Review by Penguinmiester

Love it - Pros: + Dark mode is always a huge + + Quick access via menu bar app + This app is a joy to use and look at + Developers read & respond to emails within a few days & fixed a bug I found within a week! + Kent from Cardhop said that If we want to add a contact to google simply drag the name to the google section in the left column… its so simple!!! I love it. + The icon is cute! I love it. The sandwich is refreshing. Ideas: An autocomplete feature that puts relation cards together: if Marilyn is Roberts brother and on Marilyns card I state the relation then Roberts card should automatically have that on his too

Dynamic Directions - Hey, I want to keep my opinions concise. I love the directions feature, but I would never need to get directions to a contact’s address using cardhop. Apple already does that using its contact’s book. I would use cardhop if it saved me time on having to get directions to a contact’s current location. It would be even better if that was sent to my iphone via messages or google maps or whatnot. This idea originates from apple’s find my friends app.

Keeps Getting Better - As the title says, this app just keeps getting better with each update. I work with countless groups and have regularly had to look for old emails to find a mailing list because, as difficult as it was to do, it was easier than sorting through setting up groups in the Contacts app. Cardhop has changed that. In a couple keystrokes, I can email my various teams and get that time back. On top of the ease of use that’s there, they keep tweaking it to meet any needs I run into. Loving the app. Thanks for making contacts management easy!

Review by rdouma

Best one yet - I've tried all kinds of contact administration apps; this one is the best for me yet. While the parsing to create new contacts from text indeed needs more work, I still prefer it over anything else I've had before. Once the contact is created it's very easy to work with, and it clearly shows in what address book it's stored. Good stuff.
