Contact Importer Plugins


February 26th, 2014

Has anyone had experience with contact importer plugins that you can recommend (or not recommend)? I want to import email addresses from gmail, AOL, yahoo, outlook, etc. and am looking at Cloudsponge and OpenInviter. Any good experiences or bad ones with those importers or others?

I have been using cloudsponge for a number of projects and it works like a charm. One of our project was in beta for almost year. They extended the free trial until we were out of beta. I got  a mail from them other day saying they are adding facebook also for address import. so it would be handy when its ready. I would recommend Cloudsponge. Never tried openinviter though.

The problem with cloudsponge is that they request all contacts in one call, this could mean a long wait time for someone with alot of contacts.

Do any of these services allow you to pull in a few contacts at a time (lets say 50) so that we can show our user the first 50 contacts and load the rest / updating the view.  So they dont have to wait forever for all the contacts to be pulled?
