Contacts Cleaner analyzes, reports, and fixes dozens of problems with OS X Contacts and Apple Sync Services—problems ranging from the obvious, such as duplicated contacts, to the subtle, such as invalid characters and poorly formatted contact names.
Your contacts are the center of your personal social network, and as such are often synchronized among your Mac, your iPhone, and many other apps, services, and devices. Contacts Cleaner finds and fixes the little problems that can creep in while you're not looking.
Note: Contacts Cleaner currently does not fix contacts hosted on an Exchange server. Contacts Cleaner does work with iCloud.

Ratings and Reviews
Gets the job done
Finds duplicated Names, Number and addresses well.
Could use some more options with phone number formatting - useless for Australia
Would Like the option to ignore or skip contacts or specific conflicts
Nice, quick and simple
Does what it says and will definitely tidy up any loose ends in your contacts
Save your money
Does absolutely nothing. Press Scan and it comes back instantly to say all is OK. I know it is not. I have many duplicates and lots of empty records. It found nothing. Waste of money.
