[prMac.com] Cumberland, Rhode Island - Sustainable Softworks today is pleased to announce a "Competitive Side-grade" for BluePhoneElite which is no longer being actively supported or developed. The Side-grade offer allows existing BluePhoneElite customers to upgrade to Phone Amego for $10 which is 50% off the normal Single User price through October 15th 2010. Details are available from the Sustainable Softworks web site.
"Phone Amego is a wonderful convenience that's simple yet surprisingly flexible" said Peter Sichel, Chief Engineer of Sustainable Softworks. "With BluePhoneElite being discontinued, Phone Amego offers a practical alternative for users who don't need to display and archive SMS texts on their Mac."
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. The latest release adds a Telephone Device Table to simplify keeping track of multiple phones. Recent additions include a Bluetooth speakerphone so you can answer a call on your Mac without touching your phone, and built-in support for Growl notifications.
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 runs on Mac OS X 10.5 or later (32/64-bit Universal), and works with one or more of the following:
* A Google Voice account, or
* A compatible Bluetooth cell phone, or
* A landline phone connected through a compatible USB modem and caller ID service, or
* A VoIP phone connected through a Linksys/Sipura VoIP telephone adaptor
Pricing and Availability:
Phone Amego can be purchased from the Sustainable Softworks online web store for $20 (USD). A fully functional 21-day trial version is available for immediate download.
