Editors' Review

+

Address books are a dime a dozen these days, so to stand out, a program had better knock our socks off. Free Address Book performs its duties as promised; however, we found its awkward navigation a big turn-off.

The program had a seemingly user-friendly interface. The design was very clean and professional-looking, with straightforward commands. But upon closer inspection, we found the program awkward to navigate. When we first launched Free Address Book, the window ran off our screen, so we tried to adjust it. Instead of resizing itself with the window, the page content ran off the page and required scrolling to get where we needed to go, which was a pain. Plus, when we clicked on the Tools option, we couldn't figure out how to get to the main screen. We finally found a close option by scrolling over to the far corner of the window. Clicking on the New command introduced a Contact Editor pop-up window. We found a few of the editor's entry fields a bit vague (we weren't sure what to enter as the "Identifier"). A Help file in the form of a link to a sparse FAQ page didn't do much to answer our specific questions or to describe the program's features. Once we entered our contact's info and clicked Save, our new contact appeared on the main page. The program does let you easily upload a picture for each of your contacts. It also includes tools for importing and exporting your contact info as CSV files, which worked perfectly when we put it to the test.

Free Address Book leaves a folder behind after removal. It works, but we recommend that you look for an address book program with better navigation.

"Does what it says on the tin"

July 05, 2015  |  By Foodie99

 |  Version: Free Address Book 1.6.2

Pros

Easy to import your .csv file, and to add custom fields; nice setup to design a printout.

Cons

Fields are not fully customisable; can't design address labels.

Summary

Doesn't take long to learn your way around. If you have a .csv output from a database or Lotus Organiser, etc, and all you need is somewhere to keep addresses and Christmas card lists, this is great. Take the time to re-arrange your csv file in Excel to get a good match to the existing fields, plus a few custom ones, and be sure to remove all commas from the text before saving as .csv.

"Great application - easy to use"

July 15, 2011  |  By davel1977

 |  Version: Free Address Book 1.4.5.0

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

It feels un-natural to have to type in the town prior to the street address - on several occasions I got on a roll and typed name, address then town and had to go back and make corrections

Summary

I'd recommend this!

"So Far So Good"

June 10, 2011  |  By miwi98

 |  Version: Free Address Book 1.4.5.0

Pros

Works like a charm so far with my OS.

Cons

Can't find any yet

Summary

It appear that my version of Win7 64bit does not come with Microsoft Outlook Express so I needed something and this serves the purpose so far.

Updated on Feb 24, 2013

Works really well with Win 8 64bit

"simple to use"

May 17, 2011  |  By kannuc

 |  Version: Free Address Book 1.4.5.0

Pros

it's free but ...

Cons

had problems when switching from XP to 7, but believe it's a 7 issue even though I downloaded the 7 edition

Summary

depends on the number of contacts, okay if a small number but suggest you consider another program, even if you have to pay for one

"A good Product that works fine and its FREE!"

December 31, 2009  |  By parthi61

 |  Version: Free Address Book 1.2

Pros

Gives flexibility in viewing the details of each contact. On the side bar you will get all the other details that you have entered. Quite easy to handle and pleasing to the eye. You can even insert the picture of the contact. That is real cute.

Cons

Can not really think about any negative aspect of this cute utility.
