Address Book Clearout will straighten out your contacts, clean up data issues. Clearout will not only remove identical contacts, but also find those hidden, near duplicates that can cause problems.
You use your contacts list almost every day, for work or to organise your social life, either way you need to keep it under control. Maybe you put someone's phone number into your phone but later you made a separate entry on your iPad with the e-mail and home address. Clearout will scour your database and show you both, so you can combine them in a complete and seamless workflow.
7 years of experience of duplicate contact searching have been put into making the search engine the fastest and most effective yet. Address Book Clearout will work across multiple accounts and with Social Media accounts that are linked to your address book.

BluToof 5 Stars
I just finished cleaning up my address book, and am astounded at how well this application works. I do not write a review unless I am TRULY impressed. I am THAT impressed. ... The developers have written a well thought out, solid app.
J.R. (Version 1.2.4) 5 Stars
Ripped through 2,000 contacts and helped me to eliminate over 500 duplicates and near duplicates quickly and with a very clean, understandable interface.
Fixes for High Sierra.

It Worked for Me
I have fewer than 2,000 contacts and the app worked pretty well for me. I gave gave it only 3 stars because the user interface isn’t very intuitive.
AWESOME, SIMPLY AWESOME
I have over 5000 address in my address book synced over several machines and a phone. I have been growing tired of dupes, wrong or old numbers etc. Apples contact book makes it so difficult to rework or remove files. This program is excellent!!! Thank you for creating it. I cannot speak for other users but my experiences have been nothing but positive.
Garbage with no update
I have waited and waited and waited for a update on this crap. I have 8660 contact records. It gets to 8658 and then freezes…………why wont apple take this rip-off out of their software charts. If it was 99 cent ok….so they go over for pennies. But to continue to allow a product to be available to the consumer that has no use (unless its a VIRUS) is pathetic.
Developer Response ,
Apple do checks on all Apps before release. Version 2.1.5 normally works ok - there are thousands of users who are not having problems. If you are having problems please tell us then we can fix them.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
