It's a little hard for me to imagine a use for this app., unless you're living in a house without a landline phone and rely exclusively on your iPhone. For the rest of us, a phone dialer such as Dialectic which works with a USB modem is a lot more useful.

There are millions of people who have no landline. Here in Thailand where I live, I cannot have a landline as where is my house the maximal capacity has been reached many years ago. As every body in Thailand (even poor rice farmer) had at least 1 or 2 mobile phones in his pocket, no operator will built any more landline service. I use my iPhone all the time and link to my Mac is very convenient.

Used to use dialectic but this is much simpler if you are just making calls through iphone. I wish it could make calls without my having to push an approve button on my iphone, but still best implementation i have seen.

And the purpose of this utility is what exactly?

To use my computer to dial up my iPhone and ask it "Hey, iPhone, how are you doing?"

What's my iPhone going to say in response? "Peachy keen. Just fine. Thanks for calling."

If there is a point to this apparently useless, the burden, as always, is on the developer to spell it out. Marketing involves making a case for why people should buy something. Techies mistakenly think that all they have to do are cite a few specs, and people will automatically deduce the meaning of the specs. Hello, anybody home?

The tool transfers a phone number from your Mac's screen to your phone for dialing (phone will pop up "dial xyz yes/no" and connects you if you confirm). I frequently mistype a digit in long numbers when manually copying from one screen to the other. This little tool fixes that.

Aha! So, Push Dialer is an application which dials phone numbers from your Mac as if you were holding your iPhone. That could be useful! But here it is, three years later, and the developer has not yet taken the hint that the language they use in their marketing blurb needs revising, if it to more clearly describe what their software does. Pity. That’s the trouble when programmers write their own copy, instead of getting a marketing writer to do it for them. Atari’s game programers used to think the same thing about their games, too, until they were proven wrong by copywriters (like me) who could promote their games better than they ever dreamed.

This is great! I can't believe this has been around for a year and I only found it now.

On my system, the Safari extension didn't auto install, and I the online help and FAQ are minimal.

- "free" - Yes it is
- "allows you to dial your iPhone from your Mac" - No it does NOT (on it's own!)!

In order for this to function you need to purchase a $ 2.99 app from the appstore!

So yes it is free - to look at! Not to use!

False advertising, extension deleted...

Hi MACIEKMACAK,

We are sorry for the confusion. While the PushDialer Desktop Components are free to download and install, they do require the PushDialer iPhone app in order for your phone to receive the dialing requests. The iPhone app is currently $2.99 (USD).

We have updated the listing to make this more clear. If you still wish to give PushDialer a try, please e-mail me at justin at pushdialer dot com and I will send you a promo code to download the iPhone app.

Thanks,

Justin
