No longer works-Set Up Mail.. WHERE? HOW?


I've had this app for years & have used it a few times. Now it will create the file but says 'Please set up mail account'. It doesn't say how or where to setup said email account, only that one needs to be setup. Nothing has changed on my end, I am still using Gmail app (as I have since getting THIS app). I reloaded Apple mail & set it up thinking that was the problem, this app still says to setup mail. I checked the developers website forum for answers to my problem & found a LOT of folks are having this problem (and other problems/questions) but I didn't find ANY answers from the developer. To quote a famous tv personality, "sad". I had previously given this app 5 stars, would now give it zero stars if I could.

Saved me!


For some reason, my contact list on iMac displayed all vCards/contacts (over 1000) but each card was empty. Google search and found it app.

So i downloaded app, backed up and emailed to myself and then imported and replaced with backup. No good, but at least had backup as all my other devices were ok! Then imported again and also went to preferences settings to delete my gmail account contacts. Not sure what happened but now iMac contacts set up properly -- thank you!

Charged without consent.

Aiko the Disgruntled

I downloaded the free version of this app but was prompted for payment option information. I assume this is for the in-app advertisements for other apps available to purchase.

I purposely chose “None” because I had no intention of purchasing anything. After I selected submit I got an instant text notification saying that iTunes just charged my account for $4.99.

Nowhere did it say that I was going to be charged for downloading the so-called FREE app, nor what the price would be if I did. This is unacceptable. I will not recommend this app to anyone.
