Importer for Contacts 1.5.1

Description

Importer for Contacts picks up where Apple Contacts left off by importing Excel files, CSV files, tab-delimited files, and vCards into “Contacts” with more options.

As a bonus, it can also convert CSV and Excel files to vCard files directly without the need to import them first. The app is also able to restore Address Book groups from vCards.

Features:

  • Imports Excel files (.xlsx), including embedded pictures
  • Imports vCards with automatic group restoration
  • Maps fields automatically and remembers field mappings for future imports.
  • Lets you save mappings to make repeated imports easier
  • Supports custom labels
  • Accepts CSV files that Apple’s Contacts app refuses to open
  • Can perform automatic group assignment. Groups that do not already exist will be created. In your import file, simply add a column with a comma-separated list of group names that the contact should be a member of.
  • Supports line breaks in CSV and tab-delimited text file fields (street addresses, notes, etc.) if the file is properly formatted
  • Fields not supported by Contacts can be added to the “Note” field
  • Comes with an interactive preview to make it easier to determine the character encoding of the import file – helpful if you don’t know which encoding was used or if you have no idea what a character encoding is.

Importer for Contacts never does overwrite or delete existing contacts. Instead, old duplicates will be added to a group in Contacts, making it easy for you to remove them manually if the import worked right.

What's New Version 1.5.1

  • Added support for the "Phonetic Company" contact property
  • Improved detection and handling of unwanted strings in Excel files, such as Windows line breaks and encoded characters
