FormalAddress 4 finds the people or companies you need in text from all over the place. It finds contacts in webpages, e-mails, letters, department listings, club circulars, tables, spreadsheets, or any text you drag or paste into the recognition field. It converts them so you can easily add them to your address book, database, or spreadsheet.

Address recognition is not limited to one contact at a time, FormalAddress 4 will find all of the contacts on a webpage at once. It can convert spreadsheets (.csv, .tsv). It can process files containing lists of thousands of contacts.

FormalAddress 4 doesn’t do PDF’s because they are a conversion nightmare (but you can try by copying and pasting text from them—good luck!).

It’s not a simple utility. If you are going to use it once a month to convert a single address, don’t buy it. You can use other, inexpensive, software good enough for that purpose.

But if you want the best, you want FormalAddress 4.

FormalAddress 4 recognizes addresses from all of North & South America and Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand: 54 countries, in 12 languages.

It makes mistakes—nothing’s perfect—but you’ll be delighted to discover that fixing the mistakes is fun because FormalAddress makes editing so easy to do. Drag words or entire fields to their proper position—no cutting & pasting; no re-typing.

FormalAddress 4 can convert text you paste or drag into the recognition field. It can open text files, Word documents, RTF files, web pages, and spreadsheet files (.csv, .tsv). You can paste cells from a spreadsheet or table and easily assign the columns to address fields.

• Send contacts to Apple Contacts directly.

• Export VCF files for import into Outlook, Daylite, and other contact management software.

• Export comma- or tab-delimited files for import into Gmail, spreadsheets like Excel or Numbers, and databases like Filemaker, Panorama, and others.

If you’re serious about managing your contacts—you work in sales, event-planning, public relations, community organizing, a small business, or any place where convenient, accurate contact information makes the business hum, then you need FormalAddress 4.

Note: The main window and its help tips will present in all 12 languages but we regret the rest of the interface and the user guide remain in English.
