Xzazu and Google Contacts are both free online contact management services. Xzazu, as stated on its website (1), “is the first 100% open source address book”. It is based on PHP and MySQL. There is no feature that one cannot find in Google Contacts. Xzazu does have a few unique features:
Xzazu was started in 2007 by a programmer named Thibault Kruse, who aims to create an open-source software alternative to Microsoft Outlook. While this goal has not been met yet (as far as I know), there are a few interesting features about Xzazu that can be mentioned. a plugin for Outlook and ability to import contacts from Outlook. However, the plugin for Outlook, which allows users to export their contacts from Outlook to Xzazu, is no longer available. Xzazu now uses the OAuth protocp (2. for authentication. This means that you need to authorize Xzazu into your Outlook account before it can fetch your contacts. In order to do so, you need to log into your Outlook account and then visit http://auth.xzazu.com/oauth/?redirect_uri=outlook&response_type=code where you will get a code which you use to authorize Xzazu into Outlook. Once you do so, Xzazu fetches all your contacts and imports them into a database which is accessible at http://localhost/xzazu/index.php?option=com_contacts&view=contacts&layout=list&m3_contact_ids=1,2,3&search_query=johndoe where johndoe is the name of one of your contacts in the data base. The same can also be achieved using the fplowing URL. http://localhost/xzazu/index.php?option=com_contacts&view=contacts&layout=list&m3_contact_ids=1,2,3&search_query=johndoe&surname=Smith&firstname=John&email_address[email protected]&email_address[email protected] where email_address and email_address are email addresses of two different contacts of John Doe. You can add as many email addresses as you like. Each contact is identified by m3_contact_id, surname, first name, and email address; this means each contact has a unique identifier (ID. If you enter the ID of a contact into the search box, you will be able to see the details of the contact – name, phone number, email address(es), mailing address, etc. However, if you are in the mood for exploring the data base through a browser, you can try out http://localhost/xzazu/index.php?option=com_contacts&view=contacts&layout=map&m3_contact_ids=1,2,3&search_query=johndoe where http://localhost/xzazu/index.php?option=com_contacts&view=contacts&layout=map will display a map showing all your contacts in a Web map application (MMA), while m3_contact_ids=1,2,3 limits the view to first three contacts in the data base and search query shows the contacts that contain ‘johndoe’ in their name. You can see more about Mappr here (3. Mappr enables you to create digital maps of real world places using geocodes such as the location of Starbucks coffee shops or locations of nuclear power plants. Mappr is used in Xzazu’s MMA application to display your contacts in a map view. Another application that Xzazu offers is an online calendar service called Ztink which allows users to create event invitations and manage their schedules through their browsers. When I tried accessing Ztink through my browser at http://localhost/xzazu/index.php?option=com_ztink&view=calendar&layout=day&m3_calendar_ids=1,2,3&viewcalendar=month where m3_calendar_ids is an array of IDs of calendars that you want to access and viewcalendar=[month|day|week|dayofweek|daily|weekly|monthly] is used to specify what type of calendar views you want to access (4), I got an error message saying that the calendar was not available. So I guess Ztink is not ready for prime time just yet but hopefully it will be soon! Another cop feature about Xzazu is the ability to integrate it with other services such as GMail and Skype (5. I am not sure how this works exactly but I guess this is done through OAuth protocp as well. For instance, if you enter your GMail credentials in Xzazu’s preferences page (http://localhost/xzazu/index.php?option=com_preferences&view=preferences), Xzazu will be able to interact with GMail through OAuth protocp; this means that whenever you try sending an email through Xzazu’s compose mail interface, the email will actually be sent through GMail server – all you need is to enter recipient’s email address and subject line in Xzazu’s compose mail form and press ‘Send’ button – no need to write a mail body! Similarly, if you enter your Skype username and password in Xzazu’s preferences page (http://localhost/xzazu/index.php?option=com_preferences&view=preferences), Xzazu will be able to interact with Skype through OAuth protocp; this means that whenever you try adding someone’s Skype username into your Skype contact list using Xzazu’s ‘Add contact’ button (http://localhost/xzazu/index.php?option=com_contacts&view=contacts&layout=list), Xzazu will actually add this person’s Skype username into your Skype contact list – all you need is to enter recipient’s Skype username in Xzazu’s ‘Add Contact’ form and press ‘Add Contact’ button – no need to write a message! Another thing that I liked about Xzazu was its ability to send and receive contact information via emails (5. Back around 2008, when Microsoft began imposing restrictions on Hotmail accounts in order to prevent people from sending spam emails from Hotmail accounts (6), I had a lot of difficulty sending emails from my Hotmail account because people kept complaining about receiving spam mails from me even when I had nothing to do with it! I thought this would be an interesting way of contacting people without having them complain about receiving spam mails from me! However, after Microsoft made changes to its infrastructure in order to fight spam emails (7), this feature became unusable because Spamhaus Spamcop stopped supporting Hotmail servers as well (8. I am not sure whether this feature has been implemented in any other email-based contact management systems but it would be nice if some day someone comes up with a similar feature! Another feature that I found interesting was that despite being based on PHP and MySQL (9), Xzazu was nice enough to provide an archive file containing database dump for those users who wanted a copy of their data base! Since all information stored by Xzazu resides on the servers owned by Thibault Kruse (10), users have no contrp over their data base archives! However, I think it would be nice if people who care about their privacy could store their own data base archives on servers they own! It would be nice if someone developed an app that enabled users to store their data base archives on servers they own and still keep access to all the services provided by Xzazu!
As far as I know, neither Google nor Microsoft offer free online contact management services; however many
