BusyMac Releases BusyContacts for Macintosh

BusyContacts does all those little things that you wish Apple had included in its own Contacts app. Best of all, it uses the same database on your Mac, so you can switch between BusyContacts and Apple's Contacts using either at will.

  • BusyCal integration — BusyContacts integrates with BusyCal by linking contacts to events in your calendar, providing flexible CRM capabilities for tracking past and future activities.
  • Activity List — The Activity List displays activities associated with the selected contact including calendar events, emails, messages, and recent social network posts.
  • Social network integration — BusyContacts syncs with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, combining contact information from each of these sources into a unified contact view.
  • Syncing — BusyContacts syncs with the built-in Contacts app on OS X and iOS through all leading cloud services including iCloud, Google, Exchange, and other CardDAV servers.
