This thread is a help for those of you looking for that perfect Address Book Utility.
Bellow, you'll find links for the various apps for the job, mentioned in this forum, a brief description of them, and some relevant DC links.
If you know of other interesting apps similar to those mentioned, please feel free to post a brief description of them below, and it will be added to this post.

Relevant posts on DC's forum about this matter:

  A-book: a very good, sync-able, alternative addressbook

  Addressbook Software Mini-Shootout

On these posts, the following apps have been mentioned:

  Handy Addressbook
     (24$ full version, trial available)

  Phonedeck
     (freeware, development stopped)

  essentialPIM
     (29,95$ full version, trial available)

  Pimex
     (34.90$ full version, trial available)

  The three apps that seem to be the favourite in this matter are:

  A-book
     (29.95$ full version, trial available)
     Mini-Reviews Available: http://www.donationcoder....orum/index.php?topic=2292 (by superboyac)
                                        http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=1155.0 (by m_s)

  CardScan
     (only available with the hardware card scanner, for at least 149.99$)

     Discussion here: http://www.donationcoder....ic=2292.msg15745#msg15745

I think this area is highly incomplete (i can't believe there are only these references in the whole forum), so, please help me complete it Wink

So, is this the official addresbook thread now?  Cool.

I tried Pimex, and there's a lot of good things there, but there is also so much missing, I don't even have time to go into it right now.  But I'll get to it later.

well I've used PhoneDeck for several years and find that it does what I need.  I suppose that the built in addressbook in Outlook would be a better replacement but I've been too lazy to export/clean up/import that data so PhoneDeck has remained on my HD.

I too have used PhoneDeck for the last 4 years or so.  It's been a great piece and easy to use, but I am in the process of porting all that data into a tabbed excel spreadsheet (given that all tranglos software development is over), until i find what I am looking for.  Sad

this is slightly Off-Topic but does anyone remember the BeOS?  I remember seeing a demo of it at the MacWorld expo maybe 11-12 years ago. One feature that stuck out in my mind was they had a pervasive Address Book built right into the OS itself.  You could enter an address once into this address book and then call it up from ANYWHERE in ANY app and use the information.  It was very cool and still somewhat amazing to me that Microsoft has still not implemented something like this.  Microsoft's "Address Book" app that is linked basically only to Outlook Express still pales in comparison.  Sad

I don't remember BeOS, but it sounds cool, having it integrated into everything like that.

As far as Phonedeck, a few years ago, i thought that was the answer to my addressbook search, but now it's just too old to be of much use.

Ah, yes, BeOS was great. It still lives on in a few different forms, I'll post a thread in General Software...

I had BeOS installed for a while and it was pretty cool.  Too bad it went the way of OS/2.

Is it possible to make a direct shortcut to the Outlook address book, so you don't have to load the rest of it if an address is all you want?  I seem to remember seeing this suggested in one of the magazines.
