Version 2.9.6

About this

SUNRISE Contacts user interface design for the Contacts layout.

A powerful contacts and general information management tool designed to be spyware-free and privacy-protected for your personal or business use. This is one of the better Contacts Relationship Management (CRM) tools available on the market. It is also constantly updated by our developers to be the most flexible and useful tool of its type while ensuring a sense of simplicity in its interface and workflow for many users.

We are also independent of the major software manufacturers (Apple, Microsoft etc.), governments, and the military and intelligence organisations to ensure this tool respects your need for security and your right to privacy. That means we make no apologies for supplying you with things like encryption capabilities for passwords, notes and so on, if you need it. Our uncompromising desire to give you the best is what you get from us.

The contacts component (i.e., contacts.fmp12) is free and unlimited. So no need to purchase anything (don't be guilty, we know you like it free). However, if you find this tool useful in your line of work or personal use and wish to support our work, feel free to purchase a license key. You will discover a wealth of unexpected hidden features getting activated, as well as new ones coming in future versions. And yes, you will have access to the standard lookup databases too!

Expand your software's capabilities with lookup databases

You insatiable thing. Well, if you are looking to go beyond Apple's very basic but free iOS/macOS offerings (nothing like a dumb-down version of a contacts app used to work out who you are and link this to your pushed data going to the Apple servers) and want to try a truly independent solution with far greater security, privacy, and a range of interesting and powerful features, SUNRISE Contacts is a great way to go. Better still, you have the advantage of lookup databases to enhance the power and flexibility of your contacts solution. Click here to see what's on offer.

Still not enough? Give us ideas and watch us improve this product beyond your wildest dreams (well, all within the capabilities of FileMaker Pro and your computer — for example, things like getting SUNRISE Contacts to serve you drinks might be pushing it a bit for us, but one day with advancements in robotics and AI, we might be able to achieve it. Until then, most other things should be fine).

Okay, you can stop drooling now! Just enjoy your software.
