Since Spring of 2013, I’ve been seeing this advertisement for a “new” Contact Manger, by Reynolds & Reynolds. They look like this (on the right of the sign-in screen):
The only change they’ve made to this announcement in over a year is the edit from “coming soon” to ” See a sneak peak.” The new phrase sounds suspiciously like they don’t have an actual release timeframe.
The reason for my interest in this topic is a page that lies inside the sneak peek that states the new version will be accessible through any browser:
Only time will tell if this becomes a reality. Until then, I’ve set up a few work-arounds for this lack of, shall we say, robust utility from Reynolds.
If you prefer to work on Mac / Safari, you have long been out of luck, but there is a solution. For not very much money, you can install a virtual PC application, install a basic (or even old) version of windows, and you’re on your way. If your thinking… wait, I can do that from Bootcamp, yes… you can, but it’s not fast and forces you to go into and out of boot up to do it. A better solution is to have a windows PC running in a virtual PC while your Mac runs, well, as a MAC.
