Description of App

Just keep your iPhone in your pocket.
DockPhone lets you make calls right from your Mac.
Speak freely via the microphone of your computer.

We developed DockPhone because we wanted to have a real phone app on the Mac.

To start a call, type or speak any number or a name. DockPhone lets you search in your contacts, or dial arbitrary phone numbers. Hit the Dial button and enjoy your phone call.

NOTE: Make sure you meet the requirements listed below. Otherwise DockPhone won't work for you.

Oh, and check out the beautiful Today widget you'll get with this app!
Re-dial your most recent contacts with just one click!

Well that's good. I'm actually quite surprised that a lot of developers are not aware of voice over support as it has been intagrated with macs for almost 10 years now. I guess we'll see if this app can be made accessibal. it sounds like a handy tool to use.
