Cobook is an app that enhances your Mac Address Book. Basically what it does is make the information more accessible. With Cobook, the information is linked to Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. It is a totally enhanced, more powerful version of the Mac Address Book. You get more images and details as well.
Suppose you have an account in Google. Just sync it so the results are going to appear in Cobook. It means you can access the contents without going to the Address Book. With the app on the search bar, looking up contacts is a snap. New contacts can be added. Cobook can be placed over other applications. You can then copy email and contact information easily.
The software’s other strength comes from its intelligence. It knows what type of data you are entering and places them in the proper field. For instance, phone numbers are placed in their proper fields. Profiles have images and you also get immediate access to them.
Clicking the icon will cause a search box to pop up. Even better is the fact that it can search fields. What sets this apart from others is the fact that only relevant results are returned. That is, you will only get contacts, instead of a bunch of other data you don’t need.
When your data and contacts expand, ease of access and retrieval become paramount. Many desktop apps suffer from bloat, but Cobook is an exception.
This software is for anyone who frequently accesses their contacts. Remember that the contacts will be drawn from your Mac Address Book though. With the Mac’s native synching and Cobook’s many features, managing them will be easier.
