Today we are introducing Cobook 3.0 with a fresh minimalistic design and bunch of new features.
Cobook is the contact management app that brings together contact info from the address book and social networks and makes contact management enjoyable.
It’s all about clarity and function. No silly details. Made with a lot of love for your enjoyment.
Finally. One of the top requested features ever. Sort contacts by name, date added, updated or last contacted.
Wondering how hipster your contacts are? Or where they hang around? Now you you can with the new Foursquare and Instagram profiles in Cobook.
Many of you have asked us - why is Cobook free? It’s a reasonable concern. Some say - if you don’t pay for the product, you are “the product”.
We don’t want you to be “the product”. Today we are introducing Cobook Store, available via the iPhone app that lets you add extra functionality to Cobook.
Now Cobook can open addresses directly in the new Google Maps native iPhone app. The update includes a few more useful improvements:
Also stay tuned for some really awesome new things coming to Cobook very soon!
Today we are starting a new series of blog posts discussing the most frequently asked questions and feature suggestions.
LinkedIn is a superb resource for professional info and supporting it has always been one of our top priorities. LinkedIn provides an open API so it was easy to build the integration. Cobook for Mac had LinkedIn support since the first beta and the first iPhone version included it too.
However we soon realized there was a problem - the API has low quotas and as the Cobook user base grew, the integration became less and less reliable. With the launch of the iPhone version it quickly became completely useless.
The bad news is that we had to remove LinkedIn from Cobook’s core functionality and we don’t have a good estimate at the moment for when and if it’s coming back. The good news is that we are in touch with LinkedIn and perhaps will soon convince them that having LinkedIn contacts in Cobook would be awesome for everyone.
You can help us as well, by telling LinkedIn how much you miss having their service integrated in Cobook.
Although LinkedIn is currently not enabled in Cobook by default, it’s still available as an experimental feature. Of course we can’t guarantee that it will work all the time but feel free to try it.
On Mac, hold the Alt key and click on Cobook’s action icon (the little gear icon on top), then select “Enable Experimental Features”.
On iPhone, open Cobook’s Settings and simply shake your phone.
Today Cobook for iPhone gets several great improvements including the much requested support for multiple address book accounts, quick contact actions and phone number formatting.
You can now use Cobook to manage all your iPhone contacts from iCloud, Exchange, Google Contacts and other sources. There’s no need to configure anything in Cobook, the additional accounts are picked up automatically.
Cobook attempts to automatically link contacts from different sources and puts them in separate contact tabs, similarly to Facebook and Twitter profiles.
You can already use the Dialer tab to quickly call someone. Now we’re making it even easier. Tapping a contact picture will now call the contact right away. Alternatively you can hold the tap for a moment to see additional details.
On top of that, contacts in the main list can now be swiped left to reveal quick actions.
Phone numbers are now automatically formatted for better readability. Cobook figures out the phone region and formats the number accordingly.
It’s a good time to throw out your iPhone and Mac default Contacts app. Cobook replaces it and makes your address book better in every way. Automatic contact pictures, tweets and other information from social networks, contact tagging, beautiful design and much more. And it’s FREE.
Meet Cobook, the new address book for iPhone.
It includes an improved Google Contacts synchronization and number of other bugfixes:
Our main goal with Cobook was to make contact management enjoyable. The new 1.1 update makes it even more fun and useful, especially for Gmail and Android users.
Cobook now includes a smart two-way synchronization with Google Contacts that syncs complete contact information as well as contact tags. It’s conflict free and even lets you synchronize contacts with both iCloud and Google.
Note: If you synchronize contacts via both iCloud and Google Contacts, make sure only one machine has both synchronization methods enabled, otherwise you may get unexpected duplicates.
One of Cobook’s most popular features is social network integration. In addition to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, there is now a new option to automatically import your connections from Xing professional network. Besides Cobook can also automatically look for Xing profiles for your exisiting contacts based on email.
Have you ever wondered if it’s the right time to call someone in a different timezone? Cobook can help you now - it automatically calculates and displays the local time for phone numbers and addresses whenever possible.
Cobook 1.1 brings many more cool enhancements:
