Dialogue — Handsfree Calling Through Your Mac

Dialogue is a very cool Mac app, which pairs your laptop with your phone, allowing you to send and receive your calls through the Mac. I’ve been using it for half-a-dozen phone calls today with my Apple EarPods and it works really well.

A nice screen appears to allow you to accept or decline calls, and the menubar app allows you to place calls. Very simple, very clean.

I really like this app, however, the complaints I have:

  1. I’d like menubar-less modes so that I can use it just to receive calls.
  2. I’d like to be able to initiate a call via a keyboard shortcut. (Thus allowing full functionality without needing a menubar icon.)
  3. I want the button on the EarPods to end the call, instead it launches iTunes — which is more annoying than you could imagine.

Overall: very neat app, and a must buy in my book.
