DockPhone makes it easy to make calls from Macs

As most of you may know, one of the great new features of the OS X Yosemite + iOS 8 duo is the Continuity feature set, which includes the possibility of making and answering iPhone calls on the Mac.

The "doing" part, however, is not very practical. You have to use the Contacts app (Contacts) or FaceTime to find out who you want to call and then choose between a normal call made by iPhone or FaceTime audio.

But nothing that cannot be facilitated by other developers.

It came out a few days ago on the Mac App Store DockPhone, a simple application developed by my quasi-xar Raffael Hannemann that makes calls using Mac much simpler and more direct.

Through a floating window similar to Spotlight in OS X Yosemite, you can start typing the name of any of your contacts, a phone number that does not exist in your phonebook, or even use the microphone button to speak to whomever you want to call.

As an extra, the DockPhone also includes a widget for the OS X Yosemite Notification Center that lists the most recent contacts you have called.

Nice, huh?
