Did exactly what I wanted
I found this app through a Google search. I had an old email account that I didn’t want on my phone anymore because I kept getting junk mail. But when I deleted it, I would lose 92 of my contacts. For some reason those contacts in my phone were associated with that email account. I downloaded this app, ran the backup, and within five minutes had a back up sent to my current email account. I deleted the old email account from my phone and sure enough lost half my contacts. SO I ran the backup from the email and instantly all of my contacts were back! I clicked “add all” and then another prompt came up saying it would add the ones not already in my contacts. So no duplicates!! (I was worried about that) Thank you so so much for creating a solution to my problem!! I will absolutely recommend this app to friends and family.

Worked like a charm
Super easy! For quite a while I’ve been living with contacts split between several accounts and since they weren’t on iCloud I couldn’t migrate them. Most of my contacts were tied to an email account I don’t have anymore but I couldn’t delete the account for fear of losing the contacts so I was just constantly being bugged by password requests because my phone kept trying to connect to the deleted account. This solved everything in like ten seconds. 1. Unsync iCloud contacts and delete local copies 2. Backup remaining contacts on other accounts 3. Turn sync back on and set iCloud to default contacts 4. Load backed up contacts I haven’t tried it yet but I think this might also be a good way to automatically remove duplicates without losing unique contacts. There were several contacts that I had three instances of and I went through manually deleting all the extras. But when you load the backed up contacts it first asks if you want to merge them with existing ones and then it creates new contacts for the ones it doesn’t recognize. Backup all your contacts then stop syncing everything except iCloud and restore the backup to consolidate them all. Just an idea.

I kid you not - I spent HOURS trying to sync contacts
I honestly was just giving up. I did not think of THIS method I was used to back when I had other smartphones. So many years passed that I forgot about apps like these. Today, I searched various websites throughout the course of a whole day, tried countless methods, and nothing via iCloud/Bluetooth/Airdrop/syncing would work. ALL methods lead to a limited amount of contacts - those that I see on 'Contacts' in the Mac but on the iPhone there's MANY more. I don't have a USB-C adapter yet to connect iPhone and Mac... so no third-party apps worked. After tweaking with Mac and iPhone settings, I achieved nothing. Finally at 11:10pm, this app imported 1.2k contacts in less than 3 seconds.

Contact List with deprecated email, this app solved my problem!
Many of my most important contacts were in a Contact List that was using a deprecated email address. Unfortunately after searching the Internet and finding no solution that Apple natively provided I reluctantly opted to try a 3rd party app. This app exported ALL 1,000+ of my contacts and I was able to send them to myself via email. The only downside is I could NOT include profile photos due to email size limitations. Nonetheless I got the most important information via this app!

Great App...worked perfectly
I had hundreds of contacts in my iPhone associated to an old work exchange account. Whenever I tried to delete the exchange account, I’d lose the contacts; so, I had to leave the old exchange account until this app changed everything. I downloaded the app, made a backup (less than 1 minute), emailed the backup to my gmail account, deleted the exchange account, and tapped the .vcf file in my email and “viola” contacts were all back. I couldn’t have asked for something easier and more efficient. Great app!!!

Quick and Painless
So easily backed up my contacts to my email, literally within seconds. Then was downloaded right to my address book on my iMac for even more safekeeping, just as seamlessly(have your iPhone plugged into your computer of course). Forget about the anxiety of upgrading your iPhone anymore, especially if you forgot, or even want to change your Apple ID. Excellent app that does what it says it’s gonna do, no strings attached; which is unfortunately not so easy to find anymore.

Saved from Frustration!
My iCloud wasn’t syncing with my contacts, no matter what I did. So I saw a suggestion online to use this app, and it worked! I was able to finally sync my contacts to my iCloud, so now I can see my contacts on my iPad too! I was worried that it still wouldn’t sync any changes made to those contacts, but it does! Any changes I make to contacts that were manually imported are updated with iCloud immediately when I make the changes on my iPhone now! This is a lifesaver! Thanks so much!

So, I quit my job and my company shut down access to email. Ok. No sweat. The shut down prohibited me from transferring contacts to and from the cloud. It was discouraging and I was afraid the next step was calling my old company and explaining the situation. Nah. Well, I found this app and voila! From my old phone, I loaded all 1079 contacts in the app and emailed one vCard to my gmail account. Opened email, opened attachment, and BOOM! All contacts appeared and loaded into my new phone. Bam! Boom! POW! Nice work app developers!!

Saved me!
For some reason, my contact list on iMac displayed all vCards/contacts (over 1000) but each card was empty. Google search and found it app. So i downloaded app, backed up and emailed to myself and then imported and replaced with backup. No good, but at least had backup as all my other devices were ok! Then imported again and also went to preferences settings to delete my gmail account contacts. Not sure what happened but now iMac contacts set up properly -- thank you!

Works As Advertised!
Could not be happier with this App. With multiple contact groups I could not get iCloud to backup my contacts. Also, did not rely on iTunes backup since you can not read the format. I needed an easy way to backup to vCard and .csv so I had a hard copy of my contacts. Within second of downloading the app I had a full list of my contacts in a spreadsheet. Now I can organize and update my contacts and re-import them into iCloud. Thank You!

Very simple and just what I needed
Wow, downloaded the app, gave it access to my contacts, exported my contacts and sent to myself by email. Default was a VCard, didn’t work for me. Changed it to Excel and sent the email again and that is it. Simple and easy. If the app lets me edit the Excel contacts and the import them back in, that would be amazing. Great easy app that is very useful.

Not dummy prof and it hurts
I love the concept but it is way to easy to delete your contacts and leave a mess of things. I know I’m not Steve Jobs but I just removed the contacts on the App itself not knowing it was taking my actual phones contacts. I tried to restore them from my previous backup but if you keep it up to date it doesn’t matter. Still trying to salvage my 482 contacts and I’ve hit a dead end. Thanks to this app I have to now be on the phone for hours with Apple care or make a visit to the local store. FYI I’ve never left a bad review like this before and it doesn’t even make me feel better. Don’t use this app or be careful unlike myself.

Excellent!! (Small but...)
Backs up all your contact info quite easily. This is one of my top 10 apps. I also like that you can see your contacts in the backup email. So glad I found this app years ago! UPDATE: Had to drop 1 star because every time I use it it tries to make me remove photos saying 4mg might be too big for email which is ridiculous and annoying!

Works well - Easy to use
This product works well and is easy to use. After opening click the backup button and then email the list to yourself. If you need to restore, just click the email and it will even give you the option to add them new or merge them with any contacts out there.

Perfect simple fix for icloud import
I love this app. I just used it to import my phone contacts into icloud so that I could share them across devices. This fixed a syncing problem I have been dealing with for over 2 years!!! I used the app’s wifi feature to download the backup onto my computer. Couldn't be simpler or more effective. Thank you!!!

Saved CSV File
Saved my iPhone contacts including notes field into a .csv file. So far have opened it google contacts. They all appear to be there but have not go through list in depth. Took a couple minutes to save the file. Seamlessly emailed to myself. Funny how well it works for some and not others.

I had about 800 contacts saved through an email address on my old iPhone that I no longer had access to, and it wasn’t saving to icloud. MCCloud saved it all in an instant, I emailed it to the new phone and downloaded them all on there in seconds. What a lifesaver.

Charged without consent.
I downloaded the free version of this app but was prompted for payment option information. I assume this is for the in-app advertisements for other apps available to purchase. I purposely chose “None” because I had no intention of purchasing anything. After I selected submit I got an instant text notification saying that iTunes just charged my account for $4.99. Nowhere did it say that I was going to be charged for downloading the so-called FREE app, nor what the price would be if I did. This is unacceptable. I will not recommend this app to anyone.

Awesome Fast Easy
This app is Great! I had a unique situation where I couldn’t use my iCloud or iTunes backup cuz I needed to send my contacts to one iCloud account to another. This compressed all my contacts into a vCard and you just email it to yourself. Transferring over 1,200 contacts took less than 30 seconds!! Best fix! Thank you!!

Such a relief know my contacts are available quickly via email. If my phone disappears, no need to head to the AT&T store for help. I can access my email from someone else’s phone to get phone numbers. I haven’t got them memorized, of course!

Perfect for work phone backups
Our IT department can’t help you save your contacts when your work phone dies, a 5 second ad is more than worth the security of keeping all my numbers

First off, screw apple and iPhones, but after Apple made me wait a week to download my contacts, it downloaded only 1, and it was myself. I used mcbackup and it literally took 30 seconds from phone to email to phone. Thank you!

Great fix
This helped me push contacts from my phone that weren’t syncing with icloud by uploading the file the app outputs into the icloud contacts platform. Then removed duplicates on the macbook pro contacts app. Then everything was synced up! Great work :)

I successfully backed up and emailed the backup to myself. But here’s my question : I did this to find an easier way to delete unwanted contacts vs painfully doing so one by one on the iPhone; nice I have pruned the list, then I want to restore that edited list back as my contact list in iPhone. How do I do that ?

Malware gateway?
I have been using app for a while, with no problems. But today, after the backup was done, a screen came up saying in Portuguese that I had 4 viruses and asking me to click on a link. Obviously malware distribution, so be careful.

Didn’t save all contacts
I have an exchange acct that I need to delete and for some reason most of my contacts are linked to it. It is an old work account so I don’t know how my personal contacts are linked to it. I used the app to backup my contacts and some were still missing and I had duplicates of others. Some I lost the name on. The initials were still there but no name.

I will change this to 5-Stars once I hear from Support and they explain how to delete multiple old contacts easily, instead of being forced to go through old contacts one by one and having to delete them. (This would take days for me to do.) I only downloaded this app because it promised/advertised that it could do what I mentioned above, but I cannot figure out how to do that.
