The latest updates have kind of ruined this app
It no longer syncs consistently with the cloud. It doesn’t seem to parse information well like it used to, and it has become a struggle to get data to map to the proper fields automatically. I don’t know what drove the decision to work on ‘copies’ of data, as it seems to have overly complicated syncing.
Good thing gone bad
This was a very cool idea and a nifty app. However lately - it does not work properly and even for us early adopters who had downloaded the app in its early stages we were not grand fathered into retaining our connectivity to LinkedIN etc. Apps improve this one has taken away features. Won’t be recommending the app to anyone anymore.
If you crack an inner smile each time you encounter elegant design, this one will have you grinning inside. At first, I thought this app would be too bare-bones, but I was looking for something different (from the new Address Book), and the more I played with Cobook, the more I began to discover new features and admire the design. It reminds me a little of some of the old Mac apps, where you could just try something on a new software program, thinking it might work, and it does. I’ve been using it for 3 weeks now, as a total replacement for Address Book, and it works perfectly - I have all the fields I want, in a custom template, with perfect syncing with iCloud (and, through iCloud, to my iPhone and iPad), and I’ve even done some ambitious things with groups (“tags” in the Cobook lingo).
Minuses? I wish there were documentation of each command on each menu, or an ever-present help function in each screen - there isn’t. So that makes the learning curve a tad steeper. But the Cobook website has a blog that fills most of the gaps, and when I had an odd question about setting the default (i.e., preferred) email address for a contact with multiple email addresses, I used the developer’s customer support link on the website and found myself very quickly being supported by one of the developers. (He explained how to invoke a rearranging of multiple email addresses for a contact that I had been trying to do with cursor clicks in the wrong place.)
I have no interest in this software, other than being a very satisfied user who wants this software to be successful.
