Googaby 1.0 introduced
Mac-Chi has released Googaby 1.0, an app meant to sync Google Contacts and Address Book. The program features a drag-and-drop workflow, and uses a layout similar to iTunes. Among other features is WhoPaste, a tool which captures bulk contact data from third-party applications and breaks it down into Address Book-friendly code. New contacts can be added to Address Book, Google Contacts or both, and subsequently routed into specified groups.
Content pushed from Address Book into Contacts can include picture info and group memberships, without any need for subscription or syncing actions on the user's part. Google information can also be backed up or restored, and dragged between multiple accounts. Users can further copy information into spreadsheets, and automate actions using AppleScripts. Googaby 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later, and costs $25.
