I upgraded on my work iMac running MacOS 10.12.6. Unfortunately it allowed me to install the update, it appears that I need MacOS 10.13 or 10.14. When I start up Cardhop it warns me that the OS is too old.

That’s odd, since there’s a new 1.2.1 update that shipped just after we published this, and one of the release notes is:

  • Fixed a crash on macOS 10.11 and 10.12

So try updating again—it certainly should work in macOS 10.12.6.

Yup, that fixed it. I did the update from the App Store this morning but I forgot to try opening CardHop until I saw your posting.

Does CH help you make and manage folders/tags for contacts?

AFAICT, it’s still limited by Apple’s backend Contacts API’s. As the longterm trouble I’ve had is sorting contacts into separate folders and maintaining said folders easily. AFAICT, while it looks a nice interface, CH is limited in helping with this?

I’m not quite sure how to answer this—what particular tasks are you trying to accomplish? You can use Cardhop to add people to groups, and to view the groups.

Oh, ok. Maybe it’s more than I thought then, lol.

Does it give you an overview of who’s in what group? So you can efficiently move people around groups and/or reorganise your current groups?

You can view one group in the main list to limit searches to that group, and you can view all groups in a sidebar, so it’s easy to move a contact you’re viewing into it. A click on a group in the sidebar displays it in the main list as well, and there are controls for removing people from groups too.

I’d say that it’s functional but not designed for managing very large lists. With smaller lists, it should be fine.
