    "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.

    "Great works very well"

    April 20, 2013  |   By jamessezhi

    Version: Phone Amego 1.4_8

    Pros

    Having the ability to use my laptop as a handsfree set-up for the iPhone via bluetooth rocks. Using an iPhone 5.

    Cons

    None really.

    Noticed there's also a google voice option but we don't have it in the UK.

    Summary

    I highly recommend this application.

    "Love it! Does what it says it does."

    February 6, 2012  |   By robbosir

    Version: Phone Amego 1.4c1

    Pros

    I'm replacing Parliant's PhoneValet which is discontinued and problematic to begin with. Phone Amego in combination with a Google Voice account is allowing me to finally get rid of my landline.

    Cons

    Fairly easy to use but took a while for me to get it all set up.

    Summary

    As an IT person, I've always been amazed at how lame phone/computer integration is. This app has changed my mind.

    "Crashes during setup."

    July 16, 2011  |   By wdr--2008

    Version: Phone Amego 1.3c2

    Pros

    No basis for saying.

    Cons

    Looks to be a good product, but it crashed three times when i tried to set it up, taking a couple of other applications with it. Maybe my Nokia N 97 is incompatible with it.

    Summary

    It's not worth the effort, much less the cost.

    "Now with VoIP ATA CID Integration - Awesome"

    January 23, 2010  |   By libertyforall1776

    Version: Phone Amego 1.1.9

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This little Phone Friend now has it all, works great with my SPA-2100 -- I can get CID for my iPhone and SIP VoIP without having to run to grab the phones to see who's calling. This is the kind of integration Apple should have built-in! Google Voice fits the dialing bill nicely, as well as BT dialing for iPhones. The developer is very responsive to feature suggestions and bug resolution.

    About the only things I can think of that would be additional features to add would be some iChat (maybe Yahoo IM too) contextual menus to allow dialing contacts who have numbers in the Address Book. Also Safari phone number dialing integration like there is on the iPhone, but that's probably something Apple needs to add... The Services menu just doesn't quite fit the bill.
