REVIEWS FROM USERS
"Very easy to use! This is the first app I've ever paid money for - so worth it! I exported to CSV format, emailed the file to myself, and checked - all the info came over." -- Jean06066
"Saved my contacts. To make a long story short I spent two days trying to untangle a horrible outlook contact snafu on my iPhone that iCloud could not save me from. I discovered this app and it saved them all. Worth the small price." -- seattlejr
"Did exactly what I needed. I can’t believe Apple makes it so hard to bulk export contacts from one iPhone to another. This app took exactly 2 minutes from install through having all my contacts from my old phone in a file I could import into iCloud and other apps. Best money I’ve spent in a long time." -- NoMoreNicknamez
"Amazing. Very quick and easy to transfer my contacts. This app worked perfectly in seconds." -- Coach KBD
"The solution. Moved to a new company. Was messing around for hours trying to figure out how to transfer my contacts that were saved on an exchange account to iCloud. Downloaded this app and was done in minutes." -- EYPYS

3 EXPORT FILE TYPES

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I had over 2000 contacts in my iPhone. I tried to sync with outlook using iTunes and lost all my contacts. When I downloaded my contacts from the cloud I ended up with multiple contacts for the same contact. I wanted to be able to export all my contacts into an XL or CSV file and then clean them up by deleting duplicates. There are two issues with this App. First of all when you export in Excel it does not pick up the “Notes”that you may have for a contact. Secondly, if you down in CSV it does not line up easily so it makes it very difficult to clean up the file. Many time there are several rows for each contact.
Then I tried to use the vCard file format but that will only download the first contact. It would be great if you could download multiple contacts but for outlook that does not work. I sent an email to the app developer about four days ago and have heard nothing back.

I never received an email from you. I just checked my Spam folder and nothing in there either. Do you mind sending me another email to email@example.com?
A few things I want to note, just in case you decide not to email me back:
1/ The app does indeed pick up the Notes section.
2/ Indeed the data inside the CSV file doesn't line up but this is completely out of the app's control. The app exports to CSV following the CSV format. We can't make it line up without completely altering the exported file, which wouldn't end up being a CSV file, and would thus be much less portable.
3/ As noted on our website, the vCard export works and exports all your contacts. The issue comes from Outlook which doesn't recognize VCF files properly. So again, this is out of our reach really.
I'm sorry the app doesn't quite meet your expectations, but I would be very happy to help you if you email me.
Couldn’t Have Been Easier
I wanted to export my iPhone contacts list to my Microsoft Windows laptop in a form that would allow me to review the data easily. I installed Export Contacts and ran it. The options were easy to understand and use. In a matter of moments I had emailed my contacts list in CSV form to myself. Fantastic!
By the way, there were many other ways to manage the transfer. All were simple to select. It’s difficult to imagine this app not being able to get your contacts to you in a satisfactory way.
Amazing!! BUT No Pictures...
The ONLY problem I have with this app is that when the contacts are exported, the contact pictures do NOT go with it. Anyways, I just spent 1 hour & 47 minutes on the phone with Apple Support trying to get my contacts off my phone and on my new MacBook Pro. At the end of the call, they couldn’t help me & advised I will need to manually add each contact missing to my computer (a little over 200). It’s my fault the contacts are all messed up to be honest. This app is AMAZING!! It solved my problem and saved me a ton of time!!
Developer Response ,
I'm very happy to hear the Export Contact app was able to help you successfully export your contacts from your iPhone to your Mac. Unfortunately, I do not believe there is a way to export the photos attached to each contact card but this is something I'm going to look into asap and add to the next version, if at all possible. Thank you.
