Weld Your Phone to OSX

No effing kidding! It’s not often that an app gives me the creepy crawly shivers (QuickSilver was the last one).

BluePhoneElite

BluePhoneElite just did though. Bluetooth phone + Mac OS X… Dial, answer, hang up. Call timer and logging. Caller ID + alerts. SMS from your computer through your phone. Address Book integration. The ONLY things it’s missing are the ability to allow me to answer a call through my laptop, record it and yack at the same time and QuickSilver integration. THAT is the only reason I’d want version 2 to my knowledge. At $20… c’mon!? This is one of the easiest absolutely gonna purchase decisions I’ve had in many moons.

Now, if the iPhone doesn’t come with all of the above… well, Apple will have fallen short of my newfound expectations.

[EDIT: The more I tinker with BluePhoneElite the more I like it. Just found BluePhoneEdit beta 2! HOLY TOLEDO! I’m thinking about doing an interview with these guys on version 2.0. Also, noting that there’s a lot of traffic coming from non-referrals and gmail and yahoo mail accounts. If you’re one of these folks I’d kinda like to know what kind of an email was sent out and by whom. Thanks!]

  1. its a great app - v1 that is Says:

    i’ve been using v1 for a while now and think its a great app but dont find that 2 (although beta) lives up to the spirit and feel of the first one. also – the talkthru crackles and is buggy although when its working it works brilliantly.

    im sticking to v1 definitely until he comes out with a final 2 that i can test

    fyi – i’ve been using it for more than a year and a half i think.
