Phone Amego 1.1.14

Send Article to a Friend

Sustainable Softworks has updated Phone Amego, the utility that enables you to control a Bluetooth mobile phone (including the iPhone) from a Mac (for more details, see "Phone Amego: the Macintosh/iPhone Mind Meld," 3 September 2009). Version 1.1.14 now supports Growl notifications, improves the Call Window's functionality, and fixes the caller ID display when numbers that are private, unavailable, or all-zeros call in. The update also enables users to place calls remotely from a landline phone that's hooked up to another computer with Phone Amego, adds a German localization, adds a CrashReporter feature that automatically relaunches Phone Amego after a crash, and fixes several crashing bugs. ($20, free update, 2.7 MB)

Peter Sichel writes great software and keeps improving it continuously while providing support that is fabulous. Not affiliated, just a happy customer of his softwares for many years (probably over 12 years).

Indeed - Peter's a great guy, and the hardest thing we have to deal with when covering Phone Amego is that he updates it too frequently for coverage of each release. That's why we check in every four or five releases, when the more-significant fixes have piled up a bit.
