CopyTrans Contacts

CNET Editors' review

iPhones, iPod Touch MP3 players, and iPads are ubiquitous, and iTunes is the primary way to manage all those devices. However, if you're looking for a simple workaround to iTunes to manage and back up all of your contact information, CopyTrans Contacts is a great way to go.

You don't need a visit to CopyTrans Contacts' online User Guides to get started, as the interface is plain, but self-explanatory. The program asks you to plug in your Apple device and, once detected, it immediately gets to work. We plugged in our iPhone 4 to our PC and in no time all of our contact information, including associated pictures, appeared in a Contact list on the left side of the window. Checkboxes next to each contact let you view that person's phone, email, and address information - everything we added in our iPhone. Once selected, we were able to click the Edit contact feature and modify the info. From there, we decided to export all of our contacts to an Excel spreadsheet. A single checkbox at the top let us quickly select all of our contacts. We selected the export location and how we wanted it transferred, and CopyTrans Contacts successfully saved them in a formatted spreadsheet. Similar tests were performed to send our Gmail, Outlook, and Windows contacts and all were just as quick and easy as our first test. CopyTrans Contacts even lets you create your own Groups by first naming the group, and then dragging and dropping each contact to the window. The Settings menu gives you a sync option so you can immediately save any changes to your device. It also lets you change the sort and display order, as well as restore your address book, and check for updates.

CopyTrans Contacts comes as a zip file, but it installs and uninstalls cleanly. It's a great program if you want a quick and easy way to manage your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad contact information. We recommend it for all user levels.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Copytrans Contacts 1.003. The trial version has limited features.

    "ipad notes to outlook is not a problem"

    February 28, 2014  |   By YPull

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 1.108

    Pros

    - I mainly used this to transfer my ipad notes to outlook on my computer. works good.

    - contacts and calendars feature is a bonus

    - circumvents itunes sync completely: big bonus

    Cons

    - used it too with iphone 5 to save my sms and whatsapp messages on a computer but it does not feature an sms restore feature though

    - ultimately - a well rounded application and is what I wanted

    "Very easy to download and use - does what it says"

    February 27, 2014  |   By Maurice_Cr

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 1.108

    Pros

    I had my iPhone contacts all sync to iCloud and I needed to transfer them to my gmail account. Try do that in another way and you quickly find it's not possible.


    Copytrans contacts saved the day as it allowed me to simply move all contacts from my icloud account to gmail contacts in just several clicks.


    transfer of calendars from my iphone to outlook on my computer was. easy too.


    Now I find that it can backup imessages and whatsapp - I am still discovering what this little software can do with my iphone and so far its been a charm.

    Cons

    no nothing i discovered yet

    Summary

    Money well spent.

    "70% DISCOUNT COUPON found today"

    February 26, 2014  |   By Udwig

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 1.108

    Pros

    The easier-to-understand iPhone Contacts Transfer I ever used.Transfer transfers all the contacts information in your iPhone to the program for solid backup, import any CSV and vCard file to move contacts information into the phone, export contacts data as CSV and vCard formats.
    And they currently offer time-limited 70% (!) discount on their website:
    www.ipad-converters.org/iphone-contacts-backup/

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say.

    "Quick, easy, readable formats. Love it!!"

    October 16, 2013  |   By groomtobe111012

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 1.041

    Pros

    The applications is easy to use and has multiple outputs for the options.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    I had been looking for a way to save all of my text messages between my wife and I, including the pictures, in a quick and easy way. I saw a review for this product on another website, so I gave it a try. It didn't take any time at all to install. It connected to my device quickly. I was able to save the entire conversation to a Word document, including pictures. It only took about 45 minutes for the entire process (and I had never used this software before) and it was nearly 700MB worth of messages and pictures. It came out in a clean format that is easy to read who was writing and when they wrote it. It came out in a rich text format that was only 5MB with tons of pictures. It has links to all of the picture, video, and audio files, which it also saves in a separate folder for your convenience. This was much more that I was expecting. It can also save it in an excel file, but it does not save the pictures, video, or audio in any way.

    "Superb/best app I ever came across for Apple products"

    March 20, 2013  |   By M_Yunus

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 1.021

    Pros

    Transferring contacts to and from iPhone had been a nightmare for me before I came across this wonderful CopyTrans Contacts app. Earlier I would search the web for hours trying to manage the transferring of contacts from my Outlook, Yahoo and Gmail accounts; each of the account had its own peculiar method of transfer. As a layman, prior to working with CopyTrans, I encountered mishaps, i.e. some contacts were lost, overwritten or modified during transfer and could not be recovered. However, CopyTrans made it a breeze transferring and copying contacts to/from Outlook, Yahoo and Gmail.

    The layout of CopyTrans is simplicity in itself and it is hard to go wrong. Additionally it is not only transferring contacts but one can also manage copy/transfer of photos, albums, songs, videos, SMS to/from iPod, iPhone and iPad. And to top it all one can even recover and repair missing and deleted songs on the iPod.

    What more can one wish for in a simple app for Contacts!!!

    Cons

    To be honest CopyTrans exceeds my expectations and I have yet to come across any short-coming or deficiency in this excellent app.
    It has made my life simpler and even though not very tech-savvy I am able to handle transferring contacts with confidence.

    The only drawback I came across is not connected with the use of the app per se. It is the payment part for the 'full version for unlimited use' wherein only PayPal is authorised to accept and process the payment. Unfortunately, where I live PayPal is non-existent.

    "Excellent Customer Service!"

    January 26, 2013  |   By bossfan61

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 1.014

    Pros

    Easy to use, multiple options.

    Cons

    Could be tricky if you have a very large iPhone contact list (i.e. 1000+).

    Summary

    Just got the Galaxy S3, and I wanted to transfer my 1200 contacts from my iPhone 4S. Tried a couple options, didn't work and decided to contact customer service. They got back to me within 24 hours with an alternative method that worked perfectly.

    "Makes iphone contact transfer to Outlook possible"

    December 31, 2012  |   By jrmywoo

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 1.012

    Pros

    directly transferred my iphone contacts to outlook on my pc.

    Cons

    used it for exactly what i wanted to do, so no.

    Summary

    I do not use itunes on my computer and it was imposible for me to find a way to trasnfer my iphone contacts to my outlook. copytran Contacts made the transfer possible - what's more - I didn't have to even open outlook for the transfer to take place.

    "Used it to copy my old iphone contacts to my iphone 5"

    October 10, 2012  |   By Mchippz

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 1.003

    Pros

    easy and inexpensive

    Cons

    notes backup not an option

    Summary

    I needed to copy my very extensive contact list on my old iphone which contains all my business and family contacts to my new iphone 5.

    I tried backing up my old iphone contacts via itunes but it just wasn't what I was looking for. I used this program to back up my contact list to my computer and then transfer it to my new iphone. I am now not worried that my contacts will be lost if something happens to my phone.

    "Easy-to-use, all-in-one iPhone contacts solution"

    June 27, 2012  |   By Glenror

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 0.904

    Pros

    Used this to clean up and organize my iPhone contact list and to back it up to my computer. Controls are simple and easy to use.

    Cons

    not sure yet. Don't think there are such

    Summary

    For a couple of years in college, I had accumulated dozens of contacts on my iPhone. Some of them were missing the complete names, other people had their cells changed and were not updated within my contact list. The copytrans Contacts helped me add the missing information quickly right from my PC. If I had to do it on the iPhone, it would have taken hours.

    Once I had my contact list organized, I backed up a safe copy to my PC using the same program.
