Ovolab announced the third major release of
Phlink, its telephony software for Mac OS X, which will ship in February 2006.
Phlink 3 introduces several new features, including call snooping, support for Elgato’s EyeTV and greater control over Phlink’s functionality.
When call snooping is active, Phlink records all conversations that take place on the phone line, regardless of whether Phlink has answered the phone or not. Call snooping works with any call that takes place on the phone line, including conference calls. Call recordings are stored as audio files on the user’s Mac, they can be labeled, annotated, browsed and sorted using Phlink and are indexed for Spotlight searches.
Users of Elgato’s EyeTV software for digital video recording (DVR) can use Phlink schedule recordings remotely over the phone by calling home and typing a secret code on the telephone keypad.
Also new in version 3.0 of Ovolab Phlink are an improved preferences window which allows greater customization of the software, group calling features, easier voice mailbox setup, and support for Intel-based Macs.
Ovolab Phlink 3.0 will be released in the second half of February 2006, at a suggested retail price of $150. Users of version 2 of Phlink will be able to upgrade to version 3 for $40. As a special offer to Macworld Expo visitors, Phlink is available for purchase on the show floor at the discounted price of $140, which also includes a free upgrade to version 3.
Expo attendees can preview version 3 of Phlink this week, by visiting Ovolab (booth #407) in the Special Interest Pavilion.
