"great way to bring all your phones to your desktop"

December 17, 2009  |  By macsolutions

 |  Version: Dialectic 1.5

Pros

I use this to manage my google voice account, so I don't have to look up/dial the phone(s) by hand. I click and dial, my phones rings, all made simpler by Dialectic.

Cons

Some hidden features should be easier to access or documented. Emails to the developer are answered quickly, but it would be nice to know exactly everything this program can do.

"A terrific little application"

April 10, 2008  |  By JohnTWolff

 |  Version: Dialectic 1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As the title says, a terrific little application; one that has earned its place as one of my login items. No more dialing or misdialing; no programming of speed-dials, just a click in my OS X Address Book and in seconds I'm talking on either my cordless or landline.

Many many functions, but the ease of dialing via USB modem is well worth the price of admission.

A worthy successor to Jon's Phone Tool (the previous incarnation) that also comes with a friendly, responsive developer.

Go, buy, exalt.

definitly a 5-star app. Jons Phone Tool (JPT) was already great but this one is even more versatile than JPT and works great. The devoloper is very responsive and will help you in every way!
