[prMac.com] Cumberland, Rhode Island - Sustainable Softworks today announces the availability of Phone Amego 1.2.4. Phone Amego makes using your phone easier when you are near your computer by providing on-screen caller ID, letting you click to dial a phone number from your Address Book or on your screen, and optionally dialing through Google Voice. This release adds Bluetooth speakerphone capability so you can answer a call from your Mac without touching your phone.
Phone Amego makes it easy to enjoy the benefits of telephone integration: (1) Identify who is calling before you reach for your phone; (2) Dial with ease when the number you want to call is already on your computer; and (3) Log calls, update contacts, or take a message with just a few clicks. Phone Amego works with all kinds of phones including Bluetooth cell phones, landline phones connected via USB modem, and VoIP services accessed through a Linksys/Sipura telephone adaptor. A sharing feature allows you to receive caller ID alerts or remotely dial a landline phone attached to another computer running Phone Amego sharing. Phone Amego finds compatible modems or VoIP adaptors automatically to make configuration a snap.
"Phone Amego is a wonderful convenience that's simple yet surprisingly flexible" said Peter Sichel, Chief Engineer of Sustainable Softworks. "Your Mac is already a hub for other digital devices. Why not use it with your phones?" Using the Google Voice feature, the software can easily pay for itself (free nationwide long distance, low international rates, and free SMS to multiple recipients).
