    It does what it says and the developer was most friendly helping me to configure my yahoo account. The idea of a trial version to check if it works is great. Even if it is cheap it is always nice to be able to check if it works for me... And this was the way I discover a developer that answer questions and provide support promptly.

    I downloaded this app without much hope that it would do what I wanted. Boy was I wrong. It did everything I wanted and more. I want to thank Annemarie for her help. She even helped me track down an error on my owncloud server. I received customer support less than 5 minutes after I sent the initial email and on a Saturday on top of that. Now I can two way sync my contacts even with high res pi

    I researched for hours to try to get my google contacts into my galaxy s3. Then I came upon this app. Along with the work around app, it worked perfectly! Went to the vCard file on my phone, selected it to be opened with this app, and parsed the files. Now I finally have all of my google contacts in my phone contacts. Thank you so much! Good work!

    I haven't found another app that does the sync properly. No flaws, so far.

    I wanted to use this application with my current contact book (abook) on my Debian box. However when I imported the contacts, there were no info in the address book. I wrote to the developer, and got a reply a short while after. After some more emailing we found a solution to the program (which was updating the source code for my contact book on my debian box, and compiling it again). After this,
