In a lot of ways this is a great app., I admire its simplicity compared to PhoneAmergo, Dialectic etc. and of course I love its low price. But there is one thing I don't like. For every new session I have to restore pairing with my iPhone manually. It is doubtless Apple's fault that its Bluetooth setup lacks the ability to remember devices, but there is a part of this process which is a lot more annoying and time-consuming than it needs to be. Part of what I have to do is use PhoneBox's connection routine, which is set up to guide newbies through the process. This means I have to go through a whole bunch of instruction windows before I get to the one window I need, where the pairing is actually made. Why can't the developer simplify the process for the benefit of experienced users so that we only have to deal with a single window? I tried contacting him directly about this issue, but the "contact" option on his webpage leads nowhere. I don't like it when developers play hard-to-get.

Why people pay to use an app from an unknown company when they have it for free from a reliable company like Apple. Some say it's because it goes through Apple servers which they don't trust but they trust a never heard of company. Strange reasoning.

It may be worth noting that at the moment, when so many of us are having difficulties in making Bluetooth perform well, if at all, on Yosemite, that Cobook allows you to dial phone numbers from your contacts on your iPhone without using Bluetooth. Even if you are interested in using this no doubt fine product, or such equivalents as Phone Amergo or Dialectic, you may want to use Cobook until Apple cleans up its act.

Except you need iCloud, and not everybody accept that their call *queries* go through Apple servers (just read the Apple tech note about their new yosemite/ios8 services if you want to know more about it). The kind of software as above is by far a better alternative, since everything work locally.

Easy to use amazing app. I have a very good experience with this app. The app that allows you to make and receive calls via your phone straight to a desktop is just a brilliant idea. Overall good and light weight app.

Cjred if you talk about iPhone then yes, almost: older Mac or older iPhone do not work together, or not really good. Then, not everybody has installed Yosemite or iOS 8. Then, there is people with a Mac and other smartphones.

Sorry, I now realize that it requires Bluetooth 4.0 so for old Mac is useless.

MarcoB001 Tell us about the apps operation not how it looks. If you are going to star rate something use it !!! or make just a comment. So tell us what does a Mac App look like and who cares if the app works and does what it says. Mac Update should crack down on these bogus star ratings that hurt developers when the review doesn't mention the apps operation.

Can't find the demo on your website (or here). Actually, for two bucks, I'll probably just grab it anyway.
