Scrubly: Removing Duplicates in Gmail, Outlook and Mac Quickly and Easily


So what is Scrubly?

Scrubly is a cross-platform application that helps the user to clean and organize multiple address  สมัครgmail books.

And why do I want this?

The basic idea behind this ingenious piece of software is simple. It removes duplicate contacts from your address books.

Previously this was never really an issue for most users, but with the onset of smart-phone technologies and the ability to sync directly with a Gmail account, for example, the potential for duplicates, errors and typos has increased exponentially.

Can’t I just delete those myself?

The simple answer is yes, of course you can, and with under 10 entries that really shouldn’t take you too long.

I have hundreds of business contacts; however, when I’m out and about I’ll quite happily update a client’s contact details using my super-whizzy Android phone and then sync this data with my Gmail account.

Then, back at the office, switching to my desktop computer, I’ll happily kick back with a cup of coffee and spend an hour or so switching screens between Outlook and Gmail, trawling through comparing details and fixing typos.

The last paragraph is, of course, an absolute bare-faced lie! I would never have the time to do that – I just try to remember whose address is in which location, and um… it’s definitely messy.

So how does this work exactly?

Scrubly uses what is sometimes called Cloud Technology or Cloud Computing. This is a centralized system that allows any computer or web-friendly device (smart-phones, for example) to access an online service, be it storage, applications, email or games. Scrubly processes your address book data inside what they call the Scrubly Cloud. In short, all of your data is stored in one centralized location that you can access from any web-friendly device.

Okay, so maybe I could use it, but what about security?

To be honest, this was my first concern before trying Scrubly as I still tend to worry about the security of online data-storage systems. If you check their website, you can see that Scrubly uses the standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) asymmetric encryption, which in English (removing the techno-babble) means that there is an encrypted link between Scrubly and your browser. You can check whether a site has SSL by looking for the lock icon in the lower right-hand corner of your browser. This ensures you won’t get scammed by any fake phishing sites out there.
