Editors' Review

Phone Amego is a clever little menu-bar app that integrates your iPhone--or other Bluetooth phone--with your Mac and with the Google Voice service. At its most basic, Phone Amego provides onscreen caller ID (a small window on your Mac displays incoming callers, and you close the window to send the call to voice mail, or you can program it with AppleScript to respond when you speak the name) and enables you to call contacts from your Address Book with just a couple of clicks. There are also basics like a call log, timer, and a hot key for answering calls. You can place calls from Phone Amego's Call window, or via Quicksilver or LaunchBar, and you can also dial almost any number on your screen using a contextual menu, although you have to activate this OS X service ability manually in System Preferences. Phone Amego supports Growl notifications, and you can receive SMS messages in iChat.

Phone Amego gets even more useful if you have a Google Voice account: you can make Google Voice calls, and you can send free Google Voice SMS messages to multiple recipients directly from Address Book. This app can also execute scripts based on your phone's status, including several useful ones that come built in, such as muting iTunes when you take a call or changing your iChat status when you get on or off a call. This app is still growing, but if you spend a lot of time simultaneously on your phone and your Mac, Phone Amego's useful features, good documentation, and responsive developer make it a worthwhile investment.

"Unreliable 2014"

May 26, 2014  |  By Tbanger9

 |  Version: Phone Amego 1.4.29

Pros

logging calls to calendar. On screen display of a incoming call when your phone is in your pocket.

Cons

totally unreliable. Laptop and phone 'fight' for control of the call and it often crashes. It's virtually unusable in it's current state.

Summary

It's now version 29 and the developer says it's an issue with Apple and the way they use Bluetooth. This app continually crashes. If I take a phone call and somebody asks me for a booking, I open the laptop.... and BAM!!! I lose the call as the laptop and phone 'fight' for control.... even though this is supposed to be sorted out as an option in preferences.... by choosing 'Handsfree Never' or 'Disconnect During Call'..... it doesn't work.... so more often than not, I don't run this app unless I'm sitting with the laptop open and expecting a call.... it's thoroughly disappointing that this app doesn't work the way it's designed. There have been instances, when it did work.... before Mavericks.... but now, it's useless. Don't waste your money, although, there isn't an alternative at the moment.... just be prepared, that you will perpetually be trying to sort out the issues, and quitting, restarting and generally chasing the app around to work properly.
