The mobile voice messaging service
now works with Apple’s Address Book. It’s free to download and use, as it’s presently in beta (though standard rates apply for making cell calls).
Pinger is described as “text messaging for your voice.” The software installs as a System Preference panel and works in conjunction with your cell phone. You call Pinger on your mobile, say the name of the contact and leave a voice message. Pinger then delivers the voice message to the intended recipient. You can also send groups messages using the same technique.
With Address Book support, Pinger now supports to the two most popular e-mail programs for Mac users, say the developers (the other is Microsoft Entourage). Pinger also imports contacts from Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, Thunderbird and Palm Desktop.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3 or later and a U.S. mobile phone.
