BusyContacts 1.4.3

BusyMac has released BusyContacts 1.4.3 with a smattering of enhancements, bug fixes, and stability improvements for the contact manager. BusyContacts improves background sync speed when used with multiple accounts, enables you to use an attached camera to take a picture when editing a contact’s picture, automatically compresses large contact photos for CardDAV servers that have internal limits, fixes a bug with smart filters on custom labels, and works around an issue where Google Contacts would frequently update the modification date for a card that hadn’t actually changed. ($49.99 new for BusyContacts from BusyMac or the Mac App Store, included in the $9.99-per-month Setapp Mac app subscription service, free update, 12.6 MB, release notes, macOS 10.11+)

  1. BusyContacts is my go-to app for contacts management. Just fired up Apple’s Contacts app to remember what it looked like and it’s spartan, to say the very least.
    Too bad Apple killed the mail link that would allow you to see all mail associated with a contact though.

    Mine made me Allow permission and then I could see a screenful of headers of emails at a time and can click to open them. Was it different in past versions?

    I have Version 1.4.3 (140314), the latest I can get for Catalina. The mail pane is definitively gone here. Which version do you have?
