Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The idea behind this is pretty cool and I can't wait to see what's coming. Right now though, there are still some limitations and/or bugs that need to be weeded out. For instance, the TB address book integration appears to only be able to import the "Personal Address Book" and the "Collected Addresses", but not any other address books one might have.

I'm staying tuned for this one.

Please, don't leave us TB-2 users behind! This add-on is exactly what I need, but I can't switch to TB3 :-(

Address book integration Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm giving this a 4 star rating because I believe that it is well written, and it's development is in it's infancy, allowing that goals are in flux. However, without Address Book integration, I don't see this extension being useful for my needs, or my business needs. With integration, this would be a STELLAR addition to Thunderbird.

What it does not do. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The published description of this add-on was rather vague, so I had to install it just to find out what it actually did. I was disappointed to see that it did not do what I was looking for....
What would be really useful would be a facility to use a local database as an address-book/contact-list, for example an Excel worksheet or Access database. TB can import such data, but where the database is volatile it would need frequent re-importing. It would be much more convenient to access the external database directly.

Great Start! Network functionality? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great start! If this add-on allowed information to be pulled from an Address Book on a network folder, it would turn TBird into a full-blown contact management system.

Is it possible? Soon?

Nice look. If this is an indication of where the address book is going, then I'd say: "Finally moving out of the 90's!"

I've got a problem connecting to Gmail / Yahoo contacts. TB3.1.2 - Error about "Browser not accepting cookies".

food for thought in concepts Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great to see that this topic is tackled. As food for thought I like to point out the great program "Open Contact" (http://fonlow.com/opencontacts/). It´s the best piece of concept I have seen so far: you can build groups, define own fields (very important especially with different nations as user; e.g. in Germany we don´t need States or Counties in the address, but I´d rather have my own field for a public parcel box where in Germany people can pick up their parcels with a pin all day long). You can, one of the best things, build groups and relations, so I can define Emma as a friend working for Panasonic and can with one click view who else I know working for Panasonic. Unfortunately, OpenContact is only for windows and although it seems still being developed the forum is dead and I just love the Mozilla approach to things. So maybe some of the ideas and features can be taken into consideration.
Thanks

Unifying concept Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's a great concept and a promising implementation!

a) As De Menezes said, the ability to join different contacts is really interesting, not only for non-english speakers but also for contacts whith slightly different names (surnames, alias, etc.)
b) Having an unique view of all the contacts, linked with the upper proposal, could give a bird view of all our contacts in different places.
c) An in-deep browse on contacts of some services (in gmail, for example, it seems to catch the most used contacts...)

But, us I've said, a great idea, and a big way of keeping control of our information in the cloud.

Just try it with facebook, but it doesn't get the email of my contacts, just there photo and their date of birth.
However, the layout is great, I like it!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This can be the greatest Thunderbird add-on ever!
What I miss:
1) Ability to join duplicate contacts (this is a big problem for non-english speakers, since not all services get the names right);
2) Access to native Windows Address Book (or access to Nokia's PC Suite Address Book);
3) Populate Thunderbird's Contacts with gathered information from other sources;

Thanks a lot!

Great potential please keep up development Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Didn't pick up all my gmail contacts after install, but with more work I am sure it will be awesome. Like others would also love to see integration with tbird address book and 2-way sync.

Missing Google Apps Contact Sync Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Please add google apps contact sync...

meh Rated 3 out of 5 stars

#1,since we cannot use tbird to chat or email fb contacts using their fb mail, remove the fb id #'s.

#2 Sync the compiled lists into the tbird addy book, so we can have one unified list.

#3 Allow two way syncing

#4 Google Apps

#5 some sort of button to allow for easy access from toolbar...of course, with full integration, this wouldn't be necessary.

I agree that the gathered data should be integrated into the thunderbird address book. It also doesn't collect all data like telephone numbers from gmail. And the access should be easier(toolbar button etc.).

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice idea, would be even nicer if it would be possible to connect to an GoogleApps-Account as well

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the idea about collecting contact info from the web, including pictures and live updates. I was hoping for more integrated add-on with thunderbird's own contact database (that contact from gmail, facebook, etc. will be joined with thunderbird contact book). I also can not log in with google apps account nor synchronize google apps contact's. I hope in the future account picture - avatar will be displayed somewhere in the message and that this add-on will be able to replace classical thunderbird's address book!
