Excellent for business or personal use

UPDATE: This is still the best app of its kind available. I’ve been using it daily since 2009. Just a suggestion for a future update: Include the ability to crop a photo taken in the app and/or include a setting for document photos that will automatically crop.

Indispensable! I've been using the app daily since 2009. It keeps getting better with every update. Excellent communication from developer. I highly recommend this app and the developer.

It would be helpful for users to be able to add a file by taking a photo from within the app vs. having to add the photo from the camera roll. As it is now, going back and forth into camera roll to add multiple photos is time consuming and frustrating. An even better feature addition would be to also have editing capabilities such as cropping and photo enhancements. These options are available in other popular iPhone apps, so hopefully we will see this in the next update.

UPDATE: Wrote to the developer about taking in-app photos and within hours received a detailed response. I was happy to hear that there are plans to add this feature.

Best Sales App EVER!

Seriously, there is only one thing that could make this app any better for use in outside sales. The addition of a place to track orders/commission would be the only addition that I can possibly think of to make this app any better. I prefer to list each contact as the business name and put my contacts’ names in the business field and it works beautifully as the customer “folder” to track every phone call, email, and meeting. I love that if compose an email or text message within the app that it puts a copy of it in that folder’s log. AWESOME APP, WORTH EVERY PENNY!!

A great app that does what is says!

I’ve used Contacts Journal CRM for a number of years and still love it. I really like it’s balance of features and simplicity. Also, I can’t remember a time when it crashed or had an issue. The level of configuration and customization is spot on.

The ability to use variables like contact name in the email templates really helps to add functionality that is was above the precise tag for this software.

I hope they keep up the good work. My only advice would maybe a face lift, but only if it did not take away from the program’s simplicity.
