It’s happened to everyone. You’re typing on your Mac, and you suddenly get a phone call on your iPhone. But you only have two hands. On a deadline, you grab your iPhone, and try to talk to whomever is calling by clenching your phone against your shoulder with your chin, but it suddenly slips, and slides down your tucked shirt and into your underpants. And now, here you are, screaming at your crotch to call you back while shaking an iPhone down your pants leg. How embarrassing.

What, that hasn’t happened to you? How strange. Must just be me. Either way, though, wouldn’t it be cool if you could just route incoming iPhone calls to your Mac? Now you can, thanks to Dialogue.

Dialogue is a new Mac app which uses Bluetooth to pair your iPhone with your Mac. Whenever a new call comes in, Dialogue will alert you on your desktop and ask you if you want to answer the call. You can also dial out in the same way.

And here’s the kicker: not only can you use your Mac’s built-in speakers and mic to talk to someone on your iPhone, you can actually record calls and save them for later. Pretty neat.

Dialogue is available now on the Mac App Store for just $6.99.

    Not according to the reviews! You have to use headphones with mic on your mac for any kind of quality.
    This would be a fantastic app if you didn’t!

    Really good review. A similar but significantly more feature rich app is Phone Amego by Sustworks (www.sustworks.com). Very mature, rock solid and loads of flexibility. I’ve been using Phone Amego for most of this year and love it. Worth a try if this is the type of Mac/iPhone integration you’re looking for.

    Phone Amego costs $30. Dialogue costs $7.

    I guess getting a call from John Smith just isn’t as cool.

  • OutThereLabs

    @robraden – True. Try them both side by side and you’ll see why. I have them both and the difference is obvious. $29 is a bargain if you want PA’s features, maturity and support. If not, Dialogue is the way to go.

    This seems pretty cool. I wish Mila Kunis was calling me :) BTW if anyone wants to record calls on their iPhone when they’re not sitting in front of their Mac I use RecordiaPro – sound is great and I can even spoof my caller ID. http://www.recordiapro.com
