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" 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

• 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

Customer Reviews

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.

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!

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.
