Excellent - everyone needs this app

With iCloud on the horizon you may not know why you need this app - the reason is not because sync software loses all contacts but because every so often individual contacts that you add on your iPhone, Outlook, etc. simply disappear. You may have a copy in the clouds but a specific edit may be lost. This app lets you save periodic backups (like time machine) from which you can find, copy, and paste the critical missing info. You don't need a cloud, just somewhere (eg a CD) to store excel files.

Geniale App !!!

Nie wieder Probleme mit der Bearbeitung und Synchronisation von Kontaktdaten. Die App funktioniert prima und völlig problemlos. Man kann die Kontakte auf dem PC bearbeiten, Bilder hinzufügen, die Reihenfolge zwischen Telefon-, Fax- und Mobil-Nummern bestimmen und auch neue Kontakte hinzufügen. Ich bin sehr zufrieden und kann sie nur empfehlen!




Forma muito prática de transferir os contatos. Comigo funcionou perfeitamente, mesmo com muitos dados (+ de 1.000 contatos).

Ещё бы фотки импортировать можно было! А так - всё ок, быстро, доступно ;)


All-in-1 List


All in 1 List simply put: "Superb"

by Bob Miller on Wednesday, Jun 4, 2014 version 1.2.1
I needed flexibility and customization in a user-friendly environment. SamApp provides the tool sets for just that. The app lets me use Excel sheets that are tailored to my needs and the import/export utility allows me to work with and back up the data on my terms. It's total access to your data available in a universal format. No matter how or what you do with your data, SamApp - All in 1 List will bring it to your mobile screen in an orderly and consistent fashion. Loving it!



Works like a charm!
by Lincoln Spencer on Wednesday, June 15 2011 version 1.8.1
Does just what it says. The interface isn't quite as sleek as some other apps, but the functionality is all there. I can now easily send a customized text to a group of hundreds of contacts at once!

This application is great. It is VERY easy to use. This is the best money I have spent in years. If you don't have this application, you need to get it. Also if you are unable to figure out anything, the customer support is great. ( I know I can't spell.) You do need to know that templete can be moved between two templetes. You just have to get the templates. This application is easy and fun to use.

    Sorry iOS does not allow 3rd party app send sms without user interaction. each message must be confirmed. If your iPhone is jailbroken, you could try ExcelSMS Auto which can send text without user interaction. If you have android phone, you could try ExcelSMS for Android. it can send text in background.

    Love to concept but not sure I am doing it correctly in that I uploaded 38 contacts. Message appeared perfect but I have HIT SEND on all 28. Is that correct is did I miss an automated step.

    I was expecting something like in Word when you finalize a mail merge it automatically sends each message out and you can walk away while they go out.

    Also- how can use my Google Voice app so that the texts are send from my Google Voice biz number?
    Thanks- Great Stuff!

    ExcelSMS is fantastic! I use it to send personalized messages to all my students while saving me a ton of time. Having personalized messages helps for my marketing and my customers feel like they are more than just a number. This program has paid for itself several times over. I can send a message to all my students who haven't signed up for a term with their name and they feel like I personally sent them a message, so my response rate is way up. Also, I can send messages by class to my enrolled students and let them know when to show up. All my students are in my Access database so I just have it dump out a list based on the query I want, and upload the excel file to my phone. Done! I have used customer service recently too and they were super helpful. Thanks!

    Hi Conor, A SMS message can contain up to 140 characters in Latin alphabet, or 70 characters in non Latin alphabet, so I think there's non Latin characters in the message.

    Conor (Monday, 09 February 2015 20:13)

    Ian (Sunday, 18 January 2015 15:33)

    Hi Sam, First let me say that I have used ExcelSMS for some time and have found it brilliant but lately it has been a bit unreliable sending group sms and it has has also multiplied the groups that I have in my contacts list eg: where I had one group called Monday I now have 3 called Monday and many of the contacts are duplicated in it and others are just in one of the groups. It makes group messaging - the thing which I bought the app for - very messy and difficult. Is there anyway I can resolve this issue - ie tidy up the groups? Thanks, Ian.

    Hi Ryo,

    Thanks for your suggestion. iOS has a native app Notes, but 3rd party app can not access it, if Apple can open access to notes, we will develop an app which can import and export memos.

    Ryo (Friday, 31 October 2014 08:03)

    Dear SamApp

    Your ExcelContacts and xCallendar are great. Thank you very much.

    Don't you have an intention to make 'memo' version?
    I have over 400 memos as text format. They are my record of my life over 10 years. I export/import them when I change my tool like iPhone. But exporting and importing of them for iPhone is very troublesome work. And I can't find good tool for it.
    If you could make it, I'm very happy.

    Best regards,

    (text standard 160 characters right?)

  • #222

    samapp (Friday, 10 October 2014 12:48)

    Hi David, You can send 3000 messages in an hour if you already downloaded all 30 plugins. Here one message is 140 characters in Latin-Alphebat or 70 characters in non Latin-Alphebat. so if you send long message, it would be treated as 2 or more standard messages.

    Finally, I've solved the problem. I thought I'd report it as it is to do with the design of the Activate feature. Firstly, in the settings menu, you tick a box for "Activating " the schedule. This takes you into the Schedule settings. At the top I could see the word "Activate" but thought nothing of it as I'd already ticked "Activate" on the previous menu, and this word "Activate" was scrolled right up so only the bottom half of the letters showed. After a lot of jabbing at various settings, none of which responded, I accidently jabbed the top of the screen, at which point "Activate" showed up with a tick: that is the second Activate tick box in the whole sequence which had been hiding as so dim I couldn't see it, also half hidden, only bottom of box visible (if you knew it was there at all). It would help if you didn't use the word "Activate" for on both the main settings page, and the Schedule settings page tick boxes. On the schedule page, the second one needs to be displayed lower down so not half hidden and with the tick box clearly showing.
    Otherwise - great app, really like it.

    Ignore that last post. activate is turned on. But I can't change any of the options. They are dimmed and don't respond.

  • #218

    P Griffin (Thursday, 18 September 2014 16:53)

    I would turn on Activate if I could. That's part of the problem. Touching it, short push, long push, tap, etc - nothing makes any difference, it is as if I haven't touched it it at all. Incidentally it is shining brightly.

Also, the Activate at the top - absolutely nothing happens, it's like I am not pressing it. Also, when I save, i still says no schedules if I use view schedules.

    Thanks for your feedback. We just submitted a new version, it will be available soon. so we will fix this bug in the next version. BTW, we could not find the official document about the format of Outlook csv file. we are wondering whether or not different version of Outlook has different column headers.

    Just a minor nitpick ... Export to Outlook exports Android "home zip" to Excel "home postalcode".
    Microsoft's import balks at postalcode with no space. Shoud be "postal code" with a space hetween postal and code. Love tthe product.

    Hi Chuck,

    Thank you for contacting us!
    Yes, we only keep 52 columns of outlook in the export file because other columns are not so commonly used.
    Could you tell me why you need the export file to be exactly the same as the outlook? Because our app's export file can be used to import to outlook directly. It doesn't matter that it contains columns less than outlook and the order doesn't match. Also Excelcontacts can recognize and import files that you exported from outlook.
    But we'll absolutely consider your suggestion seriously if there is necessary to keep them exactly the same.
    So please email me at samyuservice@gmail.com. Looking forward to your response!

  • #201

    Chuck (Sunday, 08 June 2014 19:16)

    This is a great app, and having the ability to export into Outlook format is a great feature, and in the purchased version to access it in many ways. Accessing and updating smartphone contacts have always been a real thorn for users.

    That being said, realizing the 92 columns in Outlook are often superflous or unnecessary, I would wish that the Excel Contacts export format would insert all the Outlook columns in the file, and in the same order.

    It is time consuming to cut and paste columns to match up the 50 exported E<->C columns to match with a true Outlook export for combining and merging in Excel. I maintain and/or share contact databases with wife, family and coworkers via the Outlook format, and this is another tedious step in the process for updating and migrating Contacts for the various smartphones.

    Thanks for the great app. It is a time saver.

    Hi Sam,
    I am using iPhone.
    We have found that this app does not transfer the ringtone to .xls file.

    If you can add in this function, this app will more comprehensive than others.

    Besides, you may add in a function, generate a unique ID to the phone book for every contact. In the event, we don't need to worry the full name or email address or tel number has change during import duplicate comparison and has same contact appear.

    Thank you.
