Address Book Clearout is a management app for your Contacts database that will remove all duplicates as well as fixing other problems, such as repeating fields.
Clearout will also find partial duplicates. If they match, you can combine the contacts and then delete the duplicate in a complete and seamless workflow.
Graphical display of group membership makes it easy to organize groups.
*** PLEASE NOTE. Address Book Clearout works with OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion). If your contacts aren't showing up, please go to the Privacy Settings, in System Preferences and make sure that Address Book Clearout has permission to access your contacts. ***
If synching is repeatedly creating multiple duplicates, Address Book Clearout is designed so you can examine the duplicates before you remove them. This can help you to find the source of the problem.

I just finished cleaning up my address book, and am astounded at how well this application works. I do not write a review unless I am TRULY impressed. I am THAT impressed.... The developers have written a well thought out, solid app.

Ripped through 2,000 contacts and helped me to eliminate over 500 duplicates and near duplicates quickly and with a very clean, understandable interface.
