Easy to dial a number, and then call using your iPhone. (You have to set up FaceTime on your Mac beforehand.)
Enter phone number manually via Mac keyboard or on-screen virtual keyboard. Hold 0 button to enter “+”.
Numpad recognizes country calling codes, and shows a country name on top. It even recognizes an identical dialing code for US/Canada, and Russia/Kazakhstan phone numbers.
On launch, the app will try to paste a phone number from the pasteboard. If there is not a phone number there, the app ignore it.
Numpad doesn’t collect any user data, address book contacts, or anything else. It even makes 0 network requests. Everything is offline.
Welcome to the Dark Mode.
Thanks for your feedback! This version comes with:
• Auto-paste on window has become focused, if the field is empty.
Ratings and Reviews
Using on Mac Mini, Mojave. I installed Numpad, and made a test call - it worked. Waited a while and tried to make another call to the same phone number, and Facetime kept telling me the number was unavailable. So, unless the developer can tell me what's happening, I'll delete the app (and be glad it was only $.95).
No # or * buttons -really?
Purchased this for dialing to check balances on accounts, but was not able to do so because these buttons do not exist. Yoh developer person, how about adding these - Please?

Oh thanks. This is a good feedback. As a workaround these characters can be entered right from the Mac keyboard.
LOVE IT! I use it to fire off work calls as the tickets roll into my email all day.
Incredibly useful and intuitive app for making calls on the fly from your mac (with an iPhone on wifi somewhere in the vicinity).
First big plus: it completely eliminates having to use facetime for mac to make calls. EVER AGAIN! Personally, I never use facetime’s video chat feature on my mac, and it’s annoying having to activate my camera and deal with the clunky facetime UI every time I want to make a cellular call "from" the mac. This app bypasses facetime and gets you right from the number pad onto the call. If you have a pair of headphones connected to the mac, they entire process is suuuper slick.
Second big plus: I have to make out-of-country calls quite often and this app will display the country name that matches the number you’ve dialed. Useful when you just want a quick confirmation you’re calling who you think you’re calling…
Only downside: the auto-pasting of the clipboard phone number is really hit-or-miss. It seems to ignore a lot of common phone number syntaxes, e.g. (XXX)XXX-XXXX doesn’t work. I pretty much always end up having to paste it in myself, which is still convenient. I’d love that auto-paste to work though. I CTRL+C a lot of phone numbers throughout the day so removing the extra step of pasting would be icing on the cake.
All in all, excellent job by developer Marat Saytakov. Happily paid the buck for it. Looking forward to seeing what else he has in the works for Mac productivity apps.
