I have a problem with the latest version of Blink Pro v 3.4.0 
The native Address Book import is working erratically. 

Observed behavior: 

Names ar not found 
List appears in unsorted order, that divers after Blink Pro has been restarted

When I duplicate a Address card in OS X native Address Book. Blink suddenly sees the card again. (both versions the old and the new one address card) After resart of Blink Pro both instances are not showing anymore, Not in the list inside Blink pro and not with the Blink Pro search function. 

This behavior started with one of the latest upgrades. 


I tested Blink Lite. Native Address Book inport work normally. 
I there fore reverted back to an older version of Blink pro. In my backups I found Blink Pro v 3.3.1 This version turned out to work normally with the native OS X Address Book. 

My OS X version: 10.6.8 Which is officially supported by Blink pro according the specifications in Ap store. 

Conclusion: Changes between version 3.3.1 and version 3.4.0 break the native OS X address book import, which in the light above can be considered as a real bug. 

Recommendation:  Please check described behavior and provide fix. I would gladly help to test any fixes on my system. 

Cheers, Bart
