iPhone Backup Extractor 2.6.4: what's new?

Andrew Coles

by Andrew Coles

Many people use our application to recover or move their contacts from their iPhone or iTunes via the iTunes backup files. We offer two ways of extracting the data so it can be moved to contact manager applications like Outlook, Entourage or Gmail.

One of these ways is CSV files, which can be exported well into any of these systems. The second is via vCard (.vcf files); we export as vCards because they are easy to use and familiar to many of our users. However we have found that Outlook in particular has trouble opening single .vcf files containing more than one contact.

To remedy this failing in Microsoft’s premier communication product, we have just launched an extra option to use when exporting contacts. Contacts can now be exported, split over many vCard files, and this is now the default. Options for CSV and "one big vCard" are still available in the top menu as before. These are saved into a "Contacts" folder at the location chosen in the application.

If you want to take advantage of this new feature, download the new app here: iPhone Backup Extractor version 2.6.4.

We hope this new feature helps! If you have any suggestions on how to improve the application for everyone, please let us know here or comment on this blog.

This is iPhone Backup Extractor, think of it as a "personal forensics" utility. It's pretty awesome.
