Backing Up ContactsWed, Feb 24, 2016
TJ Louma over at MacStories wrote a great article on backing up your contacts using iOS. I highly suggest you give it a read.
I have added his suggestion of using My Contacts Backup Pro to my backup routine, but I dislike having to rely on iOS (and yet another manual process) for this.
If anyone can find a OS X-based tool for this (preferrably a command line one that I can script as part of my normal backups) I would appreciate it. In the meantime, I guess I’ll have to schedule some time for poking around with Swift and trying to build something on my own.
