Open Contacts is a free Open Source address book software that comes with an extensive set of options and a rather outdated user interface. Several import options are available for new users who downloaded the address book software for the first time. Contact data can be imported from various popular software programs such as Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook, Windows Vista but also file formats such as vcards, ldif or xml.
The address book software will automatically recognize possible duplicate contact information and display a dialog to the user that proposes a few ways how to deal with the data including options to skip or edit.
Important features offered by Open Contacts include:
