A unique and partially useful Contacts app with one serious issue
Alone of all the Contacts apps this remarkable address book will update changes in contact info, such as telephone number, addresses, and job data, through sophisticated web searches. These data changes are periodically presented for user inspection and approval and updating. PROBLEM ISSUES: UPDATING: If you are unsure of the update info and select that option, no changes will be made, but you also lose the new data and it does not appear to be retrievable. This new data should be stored in a buffer to allow you edit and change contact at will, and only permanently delete when you finalize contact. NOTES: This is a real deal breaker - Less than hundred words are maintained from original Apple Contact Notes. CircleBack appears to truncate the full length of the Contact Notes. This is totally unacceptable and dooms this app to infrequent use, rather than being a primary go-to app. Until they fix this I’ll use it for updating contacts, but little else. Too bad!
Update: This has been on of my my bigger regrets! Over a period of time, this has really messed upy 3000+ contacts. I am now having to take my address book offline to a spreadsheet, clean it up and back manually. Be careful!!!☹️ ---- Admittedly, this is the best thats out here. It's solved many, if not most, of the local address book related issues that have been plaguing for a long long time. It is so so incredible (or stupid or naive or irresponsible ????) of Apple that the "native iPhone Contacts" that allows me to configure multiple address books from different sources, does not have any mechanism/features to FIX issues related to merging or consolidating similar contacts from different sources!!! Amazing!!! What does Apple assume /think??? Why did I take off 1 star from the rating??? Well, this Circle Back still needs to be able (to offer) to do a bidirectional sync with the configured managed networks within.....(At least I haven't been able to get this done!)
I have been using Business card app ScanBizCards for years, and even purchased the paid version. I also paid to have them manually transcribe over 100 business cards for me. Suddenly a year ago I sent in a request to have 13 business cards manually transcribed, and despite repeated back-and-forth with Support, no solution was offered and I stopped using the product. A week ago I decided to try CircleBack, download it and link it into my old account. It went into my old Gmail account and it proceeded to merge 560 contacts (out of 3200) that did not need to be merged and I’m having to manually unmerge them. In addition, the app asked me to re-authorize my Gmail account, and every time I try and do that, or add another Gmail account to track signatures, I get the Google notification that this app is not been certified by Google to allow a sign in. I submitted a support request two days ago and I’ve heard nothing back. What a lame organization!
BEWARE Seems like SPYWARE to me.
Horrible customer service
I really loved this app until I upgraded phones and have not been able to log back in due to wrong password. I have sent numerous reset password requests and the hyperlinks D’O not work. I have contacted the support services via email because there is no contact number. This has been going on for 3 months and I still cannot get help!!! A follow up review to a previous review. I wrote the previous review due to frustration. However, the problem was resolved by their support services. I highly recommend CircleBack to anyone wanting a simplified app in keeping up with your contacts.
Destroyed my contacts
Ever since I downloaded this appMy contacts have not been the same I can’t add to contacts I can’t save contacts but my main contacts are gone my daughters gone my mom is gone my recent contacts are gone I’ve got more duplicates that I started with him this is in credibly horrible app I would recommend no one ever downloaded do not except anything that merges work counts as duplicates because whatever the duplicate logic is as it’s deafly not to duplicate logic that found duplicates in my phone I didn’t take over my contacts I have no ability to save contacts from my regular contact file is forcing me to use their app I’m deleting it uninstalling it and boy what a horrible app and I paid for it oh my God I must be idiots
I’m not a fan
It worked for a while then an update destroyed more than 2800 of my contacts. It will no longer sync with my iOS contacts, which for me was the point. I no longer trust the app and their support is terrible. They take days to reply and it appears they use something like google translate to attempt to understand and reply to support requests. This results in garbled nonsensical replies that have yet to grasp the point of my support requests. As a last gasp effort to salvage this mess created by their app I’m going to try to export to CVS and import the result to my iOS contacts and uninstall this contact destroying nightmare.
Google sync issue
I have not been able to verify my Google email account since the last update. I contacted Circleback support and was told that it was ‘a known problem that is being worked on’. It has been another week and a half but I still get the same error: “Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app. This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In.” Since I use Gmail for basically all of my email and a major appeal of Circleback is the email contact extraction feature, this is needs to be fixed or this app is not really worth the time. Please fix immediately and I will update the review.
Lost Contacts in Restore
I recently replaced my phone and although all of my contacts are showing in the web portal I lost the last 3 months worth of contacts on my phone. The app doesn’t seem to sync with the device as seamlessly as it did in the past and when I tried to contact support I received an error message from ZenDesk saying the service no longer existed. Was once a beta tester and strong proponent of this product, but have been removed from the test flight program recently and the app itself has gone downhill dramatically in the past 6 months. Please bring this app back to its former glory while innovating new features!!
I am really enjoying the simple functionality of this app. It works great for scanning business cards, scraping email signatures for contact details, and using social media profiles to keep contacts up to date. My only small frustration is that I seem to have some issues with items I add in the app syncing back to my contacts on Google. Particularly with Notes, it doesn't always make it across and I have lost some data. Other than that, I love it
This app rocks!! It's truly a game changer!!
I initially bought this app to merge my duplicates and to scan the occasional business card but this app does so much more that just that. Capturing contacts through emails I get from clients and then storing those contacts on my phone as a contact is a total game changer for my line of work. I rarely write good reviews on apps but CircleBack has proven to be so valuable to me I had to give them props! It's truly a no brainer!!!
Good, but have a question on orphaned contacts
I love this app as it does a better job managing contacts than any other App I’ve tried, but recently I’ve been getting suggestions to manage my orphaned contacts. Upon looking at the big list of orphaned contacts, I want/need to keep those contacts; apparently CB said I deleted them at some point. I want to I delete them, but there isn’t the option. This option would make the app near perfect again.
Great app to collect and centralize contacts in your iPhone contact list. It can even consolidate items that look identical whoah is super convenient. Still having some issues with duplicates, & haven’t troubleshooted that yet. Looks like that could turn into a bit of a project. Also, it doesn’t seem to segregate by middle name, which is tough when you know people who share the same first and last names.
Almost... Subscription price is too high
For a standalone email client in its basic and free form, it’s almost perfect; although, it’s search function is pretty non responsive. But the premium extra features aren’t all that novel and plenty of free and even more powerful apps to augment these features are readily available in the App Store. From your Contacts updates to blocking spam calls, these extras do not warrant the $100 per year (or $15 per month) subscription price. And I’m annoyed by the incessant in-app features upgrade prompts.
There are a lot of good features to this App - I’ve used for a couple years - but today I am removing it from my iPhone. The good: The App easily picks up contacts, can sync with the iPhone contacts and often makes good recommendations. The bad: The App recommends something called “orphaned contacts” saying I deleted them and should purge. These are usually valid contacts and this erroneous saying I deleted keeps getting worse. Secondly, the App recommends additions which are guesswork from people with similar names. It recommended adding a company name to several of my contacts and wrong phone numbers because someone out there with the same name but a different person had that. I loved the easy sync and match to email - but the errors have gotten frustrating enough that I’ve given up Still 3 stars because the good and bad balance
