Macron software has released ABDialer, a phone dialer for Mac OS X’s Address Book. It can dial the numbers in your Address Book via any standard modem or mobile phone connected to your Mac.
Optionally, ABDialer can play touch-tones directly to the phone using the computer speaker. The application has a variety of customization options, including the ability to show the ABDialer Menu in the main menu bar. Enable this option, and ABDialer makes your full phonebook available in the main menu, letting you dial the phone without leaving the application you’re currently using.
ABDialer, which costs US$10, can rearrange phone numbers, de-prefixing them if necessary. It “knows” phone rules settings for all countries in the world and also lets you create custom settings. ABDialer includes online help, a configuration guide, and a Setup Assistant. A 30-day trial version can be downloaded from the Macron Web site.
