Jonathan Nathan has announced the release of Jon’s Phone Tool 3.6, an updated version of his popular shareware phone dialer application for Mac OS X. A free update for registered users, Jon’s Phone Tool 3.6 costs $15 to register.
Jon’s Phone Tool can dial Bluetooth mobile phones or regular land lines using your Mac’s modem or even just its speakers. It can also initiate calls using Vonage, CallVantage, Skype, Ovolab Phlink, Parliant PhoneValet, an Asterisk PBX server, IP phones from Cisco and other companies’ products. It can integrate with “softphones” such as those offered by the Gizmo Project, CounterPath, JackenIAX and others.
Built-in search capabilities help you find numbers in Address Book, Microsoft Entourage, Now Contact and Palm Desktop, and contextual menu items let you select numbers from other text and dial them. The software also features AppleScript support, Bonjour notifications, Caller ID support and more.
The new update is a Universal binary that runs natively on Intel and PowerPC-based Mac. A new Insert Text action has been added; support for Daylite is new; lookup speeds have been improved with Entourage, Now Contact and Palm Desktop; and other enhancements have been made as well.
Jon’s Phone Tool requires Mac OS X v10.3 or later. A downloadable demo is available.
