Guide Review - gMailContacts 1.5 - Gmail Contact Importer

Gmail on the web and Gmail in your Mac OS X Mail and contacts in your OS X Address Book and contacts in Gmail and it all syncs up beautifully. All? No, chances are your contacts are part here, part there, part omnipresent.

With gMailContacts, you can upload your OS X Address Book to Gmail to begin with. All it takes is your Gmail address and password. If you want to import only certain contacts, you can group them in Address Book and upload just that group with gMailContacts.

gMailContacts uploads people's names, email addresses and companies. A small upgrade tackles phone numbers and street addresses, too. You cannot have gMailContacts upload your neat contact images to Gmail, though.

In the likely event that an email address is already in Gmail, gMailContacts merges data in a reasonable manner to avoid duplicates. All in all, gMailContacts is a simple and functional tool for getting your Mac OS X Mail email addresses into Gmail.
