Review by Cheerrie

So far, so good! But I need a bit more. - This application is relatively easy to use, although I wiped the entire contact data base i’d created after downloading it onto my iPhone. The sync button deleted everything from the desktop to the iPhone state with no information (bleh bleh bleh). Nevertheless, I retyped everything again and was back on track. Would love to see some functionality and integration with Excel, a way to separate customers into distinct groups, a nice way to run reports with certain fields checked, and perhaps a time field/feature with a sync to calendar for the sake of appointment reminders. A person can dream! Oh, I have to figure out why I had to pay $39 for the desktop version; $19 for the iPad version; and another $19 for the iPhone version. That’s so not cool. And the iPad version won’t sync with the other two. Geez!

Big Dissappointment - I looked at the previous review and, like an idiot, I ordered it. I cannot do most things that I can do even with TapForms, which is relatively primitive. I want my money back!!!

Version 1.3.1
Review by Bruzyme

Problems with Synching - I have used Contacts Journal (CJ) for approximately four years. I love the format, layout, and features. It does exactly what I need it to do regarding managing my business contacts. However, initially I had indescribable frustration with frequent failures of the app to synch properly between devices using iCloud. In fact, my frustration was such that I almost quit using the app. Those problems disappeared when I started using Dropbox to synch between devices. For the past six months I have used Dropbox to synch and have had no problems. So, I highly recommend the app IF you use Dropbox to synch between devices. I will also say that the support staff of CJ is always quick to respond to issues…so, that is also a “plus” to using the app.

A Charm! - If you are a Mac lover and like the clean easy format you will easy right into Contacts Journal. Very easy to imput, view and customize client data on Mac and iPhone. The best part of this app is it’s over the top excellent customer service. They are an email away and extremely detial oriended and helpful. Note, you do pay for the app on your Mac ($39.99) and then pay again ($9.99) for it on your iPhone. Don’t hesitate this is the one to buy. BTW I’ve had no syncing problems with iCloud. Works great.

Review by wittystyle

DO NOT BUY - I used the iphone application without any issues and enjoyed it very much. Then, I decided to purchase the mac application (for the insane price of $40). I wanted to have the same application on my computer and have information sync between my phone and mac. Soon as I downloaded the app and connected to iCloud via the application my ENTIRE database on my phone was deleted. Literally 2 years worth of data gone. Customer service gave me written directions which included about 20 steps which didn’t make sence for the average person. So, I decided to start over and just enter information from this point forward. The sync function decided to stop working about 2 weeks into using the app. Contacted customer service again and requested to speak over the phone for fear of losing my info again. They declined and told me they plan on releasing a ’new version’ in 3-4 months. Hey buddy, how about you stop charging $40 for a version you know clearly doesn’t work how it’s suppposed to! App deleted.

Review by TheGasser

Great app - I’ve been using CRM for a couple of months, and it does everything it claims . . . and perhaps more. I have looked at several Contact Management apps, and this is the best I could find. Price is right; performance is excellent. I asked CRM Support a question, and received a response the same day.
