    Anyone try it out yet?

    I has some interesting sync/import/export features. I am curious about it asking for my gmail info.

    More info about how this works would be great, as it might work as a great way to populate my contact db which is still suffering.

    I have a few contact apps -

    StarContact 164k
    ContacstBlast 765k
    Hive 778k

    Trying them out.

    I can certainly see the disadvantages of the two that are 700+ k.

    I only plan on keeping one. Hive might be more of a utility if it helps me import/export my contacts from vcards. I have to find some time to get that done.

    Here are the comments so far .... sounds like importing is still very problematic ...

    There are actually two forms of import that I can tell...one is from a google doc spreadsheet and I am looking for the documentation on that.

    The other the commenters are referring too is this one time import the app sucks your data from the contact db (not sure how/where). I had no issue with this part of the process it worked.

    In the preferences there is a save, restore and import option. I am not ready to really dig into this, but I plan too. (when is the real question!)
