This great application unlocks your data from the Mac OS address book and gets it out in a useable form, no scraping.

For those of us who have been throwing address data into one or more Mac address books (laptop and desktop, for example) it is easy to find that they get out of synch very easily. While Apple lets you back up individual address books, it cannot do an intelligent merge that will bring in one file and add the new entries.

Address Book backup files can overwrite the existing file, but that is not always what is needed. So when you need to roll up your sleeves and clean up years of digital sediment, this is the only serious tool to start the job.

Because the exported data structure is written for a specific application, it would take a bit of work to repurpose it for any other use. Just be sure to do any major data pruning in the spreadsheet rather than attempt to re-engineer it on Google.

  • Very fast and does exactly what it says it will do: provide clean, readable files.
  • Just bear in mind that it is exporting a spreadsheet that can be imported into the Google cloud. This means that (1) the data fields are written in the right order for Google to digest; (2) as a result, fields that were separate in the Apple Address Book are concatenated (eg first and last names) while clumps of phone numbers for one record are shoehorned into a single field with an internal separator.
