Editors' review

Contact managers don't have to be complex to be useful, and E-Z Contact Book takes that fact and runs with it. This simple program makes it easy to keep track of friends, family, business associates, and anyone else, and it includes a few extra features that set it above the no-frills competition.

E-Z Contact Book's interface is plain and intuitive, and we had no trouble getting started with it. To add contacts, you must first create a new group within the All Contacts heading. This makes it easy to keep contacts from different parts of your life organized and easy to find. For each contact, you can then add both personal and business contact information, a birthday, and notes. The program has a search feature, an important component of any contact manager that you're going to use for more than a few people, but what really impressed us were some of the other features that you don't always see in programs of this type. You can click on a contact's e-mail address to launch a default e-mail program and click on Web addresses to go to the Web site--fairly typical features--but you can also click on a phone number to initiate a call using Skype. You have to have Skype installed for this to work, of course, and the typical fees apply, but those who are already fans of Skype will appreciate this feature. We also loved it that the program will automatically launch Google Maps and show the location of a contact's address. An online Help file is well-written and thorough. Overall, we were quite impressed with E-Z Contact Book; we loved that it doesn't go overboard with features of questionable value but instead includes just a few, really useful extras in an easy-to-navigate interface.

    "Simple and easy to use"

    March 01, 2014   |   By ansuk

    Version: E-Z Contact Book 3.0.4.4

    Pros

    Clean interface
    Userfriendly
    Simple to use

    Cons

    Lacks some features

    Summary

    This does exactly what it says on the tin and does it well. It's very simple and easy to use but some people may find it a little basic but if you're just looking for a basic address book script then you can't go wrong.

    "Most likely the best phone-book out there"

    October 12, 2013   |   By oilcaps

    Version: E-Z Contact Book 3.0.4.3

    Pros

    Holds all the information needed for unlimited amount of contacts, easy to use.

    Cons

    Needs a way to sync database between PC (I think the developer is working on that)

    Summary

    Can't believe the Winnie Butts that complain about a FREE program and not give the developer a chance to repair a glitch! I had a small problem when first installed and it was solved the very same day ( not like Google, Microsoft, Apple, etc....); hence the new update Oct 10th to Version 3.0.4.3. So, all you Cry Babies out there give em a chance, it cost you nothing.

    "Absolutely Terrible!!! After 6 years expeience!"

    September 03, 2013   |   By joelb662

    Version: E-Z Contact Book 3.0.4

    Pros

    None - Offers what any base address book application SHOULD offer! Nothing special here!

    Cons

    Spend HOURS entering names, addresses, personal data, setting up groups, etc. Then one day... out of the blue (no computer crash - no other problems) Your entire data file is GONE! G - O - N - E !!!
    The first time this happened was with an older version, and on a different pc... This was the last time!

    Summary

    Do yourself a favor, friends. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH E-Z CONTACT BOOK!!!

    "OK but implications for the UK"

    August 16, 2013   |   By rtbcomp

    Version: E-Z Contact Book 3.0.4

    Pros

    Nice program, you can access your email client and Google maps from it.

    Cons

    When importing a VCF file the county field was truncated to three characters, eg "Shropshire" appeared as "Shr"

    Summary

    Because of problem in (4) I'm still looking. I did check for updates, and it said an update was available, but the new version was the same as the old.

    Updated on Aug 16, 2013

    I've been told the problem mentioned above is a known issue and is being fixed.

    Now I've had time to play with this program some more I love it to bits. I especially like the feature during imports where it finds an existing and imported record are similar it allows you to manually adjust the fields before importing. When using CSV files you can manually match imported fieldnames with database fieldnames - brilliant.

    "Excellent - Intuitive - Relational - And Simple!"

    June 02, 2013   |   By joelb662

    Version: E-Z Contact Book 3.0

    Pros

    This little contact program reminds me a bit of Apple's old Hypercard program. Very simple to set up and use, hard to screw up, and it just sits there waiting for your inquiries. Not as complicated as some MS apps, which is a good thing - they were too complex anyway. All I need is a place to jot down the numbers, emails and addresses of some people that I do not want to lose. East to separate into groups also.

    Cons

    Change comes to all good things, and E-Z Contact Book is no different. But every time I try to execute a software upgrade, I wind up losing whole batches of data, and then have to restore from my back-ups. But all is forgiven, because the upgraded program now works well enough better, that the trtansition is just something you have to accept.

    Summary

    Keep up the good work....but don't get carried away! Simple is good. I like this program. Doesn't give me any trouble. I can even do some simple invoicing, and letters withn envelopes!

    Version: E-Z Contact Book 2.7

    Pros
