A couple of items: Why someone listed Phone Amego as an alternative to this App I do not understand as I could not find any documentation that Phone Amego directly supports faxing, which is what iFax does. That being said doing faxing via the internet defeats the primary reason that financial institutions specify faxing for critical transactions as using a real fax machines for the transmission of information insures the safety and security of the transmission. When the option of sending the information via the internet to a fax server, as it is when adding this path to the front end of the transmission (no fax machine or fax modem), it then opens up the opportunity for the contents of the fax to be hacked or compromised in another fashion, thereby defeating one of the primary purpose of faxing. The risk could be reduced if the fax app on the users computer seriously encrypted the document before sending to the fax server, which would then decrepit it before actually faxing it, but I have never seen this documented as part of any of a fax application.. Based on the available informationI have so far, using a public fax server, in my opinion seriously compromises the security and confidently of the document being transmitted, which in turn defeats one of the primary reasons for faxing, given todays technology, in the first place. How unfortunate that Apple has chosen to eliminate the opportunity to incorporate fax modem support in the later versions of their operating systems. This is one arena that I will give high marks to Microsoft as Windows 10 still supports fax modems, which is one significant reason I still choose to run Windows on my Mac in emulation mode (Virtual Box, VMWare Fusion, Parallels).

I had to send a fax for the first time in many years. I found AT&T voip supports fax. Dusted off the old machine and plugged it into phone line. No problem.

When it works, it's great. The application for Mac deskstop is frozen, and customer service is "working on it." It forces you to buy a fax number (free for 7 days) in order to get the app to work, but there is no way to cancel the number. The web page forces you to sign up, but doesn't snyc with your desktop. So you end up having two accounts and both are frozen. Other than that, it works well.

Even assuming the bugs reported below have been fixed, Apple has killed faxing in macOS X 10.12 Sierra—fax modems are no longer supported. Solution? Don't upgrade to Sierra or get an inexpensive (or expensive) multifunction printer (chances are you already have one). Most still have fax capability. Among the businesses that still use faxing are pharmacies and doctors offices, though many use e-fax now.

Actually Apple killed faxing several versions before Sierra. Another solution I use is to use Windows which still has Fax capability, even Windows 10. You can use it on a cheap real machine or virtually, although I have not tried it with the free emulator, Virtual Box. Legitimate licenses of Windows without support are around $100.

We still live in a world that uses faxes. Many use it because faxes can't have imbedded viruses or malware. However I am of the belief that electronic fax services are a waste of money when you can buy a USB fax modem for under $25 that usually come with fax drivers for windows and Macs still have it built into the OS.

Screw faxing! Get with it people and email! Scan to email is a better version of Faxing.

Like it or not, Faxing right now, particularly when hardware is used for the task is still the most secure way to transmit a document. That is a substantial reason that Financial Institutions, and Healthcare Providers still use it. Shame on you Apple from dropping Fax Modem support!

What a joke to call this "free". Any use of this application costs money.
