We're generally fans of Path, the more private social network. But that could be because we have yet to experience the horror of having the service spam our address book -- even after uninstalling the app.
It's already the second Friday of the very new year and how are you doing with your resolutions? Not too bad? Or just plain terrible? Well, our apps are mostly productivity related this week, so maybe they can help old you become a better new you.
Apple’s simple Address Book app (redubbed Contacts in Mountain Lion) can store your contact details, upload them to iCloud, which syncs them to other devices--and that’s about it. But we hate having to launch it to see, edit, or create a contact. Cobook takes that pain away. Plus, you don’t have to re-enter or import existing contacts: Cobook makes full use of Address Book’s database, so anything you modify with Cobook is still available to your other devices using iCloud.
Numbers isn’t an application you immediately think of when talking about Address Book contacts, but the two work together quite happily. For example, as in this guide, you could be planning a party and want to include a guest list in your document.
I need to transfer a set of contacts from my Mac to someone who works on a PC. She’s already tried transferring the files with a USB drive, but her PC can’t open the files. We must be doing something wrong. Can you help?
