Cisdem has updated its ContactsMate app for macOS to version 5.7.0.

The app allows users to view, add, delete, edit, group, tag, share and export contacts. The contacts can be imported from CSV or vCARD file, or from Google, iCLoud, Exchange and other social media accounts. Version 5.7.0 is a maintenance upgrade with bug fixes.

New account types bring even more accurate money management to international customers.
