21st-Century Tech meets 19th-Century Habits

I'm stumped. Are there any iPad address book apps that have space to let you record POSTAL addresses? They all seem to give space for everything but - phone, mobile, Linkedin, web, Twitter, email, Foursquare, Instagram, etc., but no space for stick-a-stamp-on-an-envelope-and-drop-it-in-the-mail mailing addresses. (I also have the sinking feeling y'all are gonna come in with like 20, so can we also turn this into "recommend me your favorite one"?) Thanks.

Where is my rolodex in the cloud?

My small highly mobile business requires a very basic cloud based address book, preferably with as much free form as possible so that key people in different time zones / locations have 24/7 access to a common address book. Think AZZ cardfile in the cloud. Where is it? All I've found are overtly complex and demanding of what goes on what line and are totally US centric. I am a great believer in KISS (Keep it Simple, Stupid) and want my keypeople to be able to operate the same way. Salesforce is not my answer. All input gratefully appreciated.

How can I keep track of reaching out to my contacts on a regular basis?

I want a contact management system that will remind me to: (1) follow up with new people I meet, and track when I do, and (2) reach out to those people on a regular basis (and track when I do). Please share your own app-based or text-based system for doing this! [more inside]

I want an app to manage my contacts on my iPhone

Please recommend your favorites. It needs to be able to be backed up to my computer and I want to be able to divide contact info into categories (work, school, etc...) and vary the ringtones associated with them (if it can be done by category, so all my work numbers automatically ring differently, that would be awesome). I want warnings if it is going to delete any contacts as well, as this has been a problem in the past.

What's the deal with syncing contacts between Address Book, iCloud and Gmail???

In short: how do I sync all my contacts between Mac OS X Address Book, iOS, iCloud.com, and Gmail.com? Not as short: In olden days, I used the Address Book app on my Mac to store all my contacts. Everything in there would sync to MobileMe (and by extension, iPhone, iPad and me.com) and Google (for Gmail). After iCloud was released in October, turning on contact syncing between Address Book and iCloud resulted in a message that said if iCloud contact syncing is turned on Google syncing must be turned off. Googling tells me that lots of people are having this problem, but I'm not finding a solution within all the noise. What am I missing? Any settings to change? Any software? Thanks in advance.

Free online address book, please

Please recommend a free online address book for my slightly technophobic step-mom. I've found a bunch that might work, but not having any experience with them, I don't know which are safe and which are going to sell her info to spammers. The easier to use, the better.

Online sharable address book?

I'm looking for an online, free address book that my partner and I can share -- so we should both/each be able to log in to access it, rather than it being linked to just one person's email address. Bonus if it provides a good way to handle address-book entries for, say, a married couple (i.e., two people in one entry), and bonus if the user can choose/configure which fields any given entry contains. Must be usable on a Mac, preferably w/ Safari.

Help me get a small business network of Macs organized

Some clients of mine have a small consulting business that is rapidly expanding. What started as 1 desktop computer has turned into 4 desktops, 4 laptops (and recently 2 iPhones), and they'll soon be adding some more desktops. They're moving some of the computers out of their home office, and into a "real" office next week and I'm really trying to nail down a good setup for them. I'm looking for your advice on how you've organized a smallish network of Macs, allowing anywhere access of Files, Email, Calendar and Address Book. [more inside]

How to get groups out of Outlook Express on Windows?

OK - I just bought an iMac to replace our dying Windows machine at home. I've successfully moved over almost everything - email (thanks to emailchemy), bookmarks, contacts, calendar items, documents. But I'm stuck on one thing - how can I reproduce the groups of contacts from our old windows outlook express address in the OS X address book? I would rather not have to recreate them one address at a time if I can avoid it. Thanks!
