This is an OK contact manager, has a lot of features, but unfortunately it has issues where portability is concerned. Printing information was next to impossible, (copy, export, export, print) yikes! When using it as portable, it didn't want me to log in using my user password I provided, tested on quite a few machines. This is not good of course, if you can't use it as a portable easily, it sort of defeats the purpose.
I will keep an eye on this but currently, it's a bit too choppy for my use.
I was looking forward to using this program. I installed it to flash drive so I could have my address book with me everywhere and do a simple print to envelope. I should not have to go through so many steps to print a single envelope.
Simply stated you should be able to highlight one contact and click print then get an envelope out of your printer.
Also the version I downloaded has some mapping issues. Every way I tried to import an address book things would go into the wrong place. I finally manually created a single contact and then exported it. Checked out the exported file to find out that email 1 was saved as ICQ and email 2 was saved as AIM.
Was able to import my emails by telling them to import as ICQ and AIM which did put them in the correct place.
This program is just not worth the hassle.
Can't give a program with this types of issues an excellent price. Even free is not worth the trouble.
The best contact manager software out there! And it's free!
While looking at this software description, I noticed a very useful feature. You can use this on USB drives. Very handy considering I move from multiple systems on a daily basis. I also like the email support within the program... Write messages and as soon as you connect, they are gone! Very handy for on the go...
One minor quibble with this program, is the inability of the program to remember the directories that you have previously browsed to save or load a file.
And two major problems IMO:
When creating address lists it requires you to import contacts ONE AT A TIME rather than by whole books which if you are dealing with many contacts for creating mailing lists to print is very frustrating. The other short coming is the inability to change the font for printing. If these two problems could be addressed this would be a five star program IMO.
While the features are similar to those of my Outlook Express address book, I found the interface of this program as having more eye appeal. Kurlo is very easy to set up and navigate. It's obvious that considerable thought for the end user went into the development of this program.
Very good stuff with a lot of stuff. Do one thing and do it perfectly. Quick. Low footprint.
But there is a big problem : does not import neither export neither LDIF neither vCARD, only TAB or CSV. Also, does not integrate with the Bat, Pocomail, etc. it would just have been plain perfect.
This software was highly recommended everywhere I visited for a Portable Address Book. Yes, it's portable, and works wonderfully well on a USB drive, but can also be installed on your computer.
I use it for managing my "forum friends" to keep track of important people and everyone I know.
Would Highly recommend this app to anyone in need of a contact/address book!
Am truly impressed. A freeware product that meets almost all my needs and exceeds by far most of the similar shareware products on the market. The ability to handle dates and give reminders is an unexpected but much appreciated bonus. Date repesentation is presently restricted to the American format of mm/dd/yyyy but this is likely to change in future releases. A small niggle regarding an excellent program which shall certainly remain permanently installed on my computer.
