Phone Amego 1.1.20

Send Article to a Friend

With version 1.1.20 of the Bluetooth and Google Voice phone utility Phone Amego, Sustainable Softworks is cleaning up some messy bits, changing the Finder name of the application to "Phone Amego" (with a space) and renaming the application's login item. These changes unfortunately require manual intervention from the user - you must add a space to the current PhoneAmego.app file in your Applications folder for the automatic update to 1.1.20 to work. Once you've updated, remove com.sustworks.phoneAmego.loginItem.sCID from the Login Items view of the Accounts preference pane, then open Phone Amego itself, and select the Launch at Startup checkbox to install the new login item.

Other notable changes since the 1.1.14 release we last looked at include:

  • Reorganized the User's Guide as a navigable Web site, making it much easier to get started with Phone Amego.
  • Addition of a Phone Amego User Forum for support.
  • The Recent submenu show the most recent five calls at the top, and then sorts the rest alphabetically for easier scanning. Also, Address Book phone type labels appear in the Recent menu items.
  • Addition of an option to log all dialed calls in a separate iCal calendar.

Finally, Sustainable Softworks has fixed a number of bugs in Phone Amego 1.1.20, improving the reliability of opening Bluetooth connections and eliminating some possible crashes. ($20, free update, 2.7 MB)
