Updating your contacts and tracking them can be a challenge as your network grows. Juggling the contacts, lists, calendar, and mail apps is no fun. 

Despite the updates, the Contacts app on Apple devices leaves much to desire and doesn’t cater to your needs. BusyContacts step in to solve the problem. The app has been developed for macOS devices. It syncs data automatically and allows you to import/ access contacts with a couple of clicks.

Features of BusyContacts 

The app is compatible with macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) or later, macOS 12.0 (Monterey), and Apple Silicon. 

Let’s look at the important features offered by the BusyContacts app and why it is a better choice than its competitors. 

  • Activity List 

Want to know what previous activity to have with a particular contact? The number of calls, emails, messages, etc., are provided in the activity list. You can access this on the right panel of the Card View option. The pane will be located at the bottom of the screen when you switch to List View. You can track the communication between you and any contact on your list using this feature. 

  • BusyCal Integration 

BusyContacts is not just an app to save a list of contact details. Integrate it with the BusyCal app to generate insights, schedule calls, and do much more. The Activity List feature is interlinked with the BusyCal app on your Mac to provide you with the latest information. BusyContacts is also integrated with your Mail, Messenger, and social media accounts. 

  • Social Network Integration 

Do you know you can integrate your social media profiles, like Twitter handle, LinkedIn, etc., with the BusyContacts app? The app will collect and sync data to create contacts, fill in additional information, and update the activity list automatically. There’s no need to spend hours of your time linking the contacts with their social profiles individually. 

  • Smart Filters 

BusyContacts app allows you to customize views, search and filter contacts the way you want. The app is user-friendly and makes it easy to access any contact and information with ease. 

  • Tags 

Tags are a great way to sort contacts using color codes. If you’re a fan of organization, you’ll love what this feature offers. Categorize contacts into different types (family, friends, colleagues, clients, businesses, etc.) and assign a tag for each. Use colors to denote the tags. This feature simplifies your search and enhances Smart Filters. 

  • Data/ Contact Sync 

There’s no point in using a contacts app if it doesn’t automatically sync data, right? BusyContacts can seamlessly sync contacts on your iCloud, Exchange, MS Office, Google, and other CardDAV servers. The process is simple and fast.
