The best way to dial numbers on OS X!
Keypad, formerly Continuity Keypad, allows you to dial phone numbers on your Mac, and place the call via your iPhone utilizing the FaceTime App in Yosemite. With Keypad, you can either manually enter a number to dial, or search your contacts with just a keystroke. Additionally, Keypad has a Notification Center widget, which allows you to dial numbers from anywhere in OS X.
– Beautiful transparent design
– Dial numbers that aren't in your contacts
– Redial the last number
– Save a number to your contacts
– Search your contacts by starting to type a name (optional)
– Use letter keys to dial vanity numbers (optional)
– Dial tones (optional)

+ Fixed company contacts not appearing in search.
+ Fixed pasting numbers with spaces.
+ Fixed pasting numbers with letters.
+ Fixed number formatting when pasting.
Dialer doesn’t work in-call, big disappointment!
The dialer is fine and it’s nice that i can make personal calls, I guess, but I have personal people already stored into my contacts anyway. The number ONE reason I purchased this is for client conference calls through my computer and speak system, which is better than the quality from the phone. However, the dialer does not work once you are in-call. It only works to dial. This was such a big disappointment because it was the only reason I purchased the app. If the dialer doesn’t work to punch in conference pin numbers or anything, it’s virtually useless for me. I truly hope they will eventually upgrade this feature. If and when they do, I would certainly change my rating, but for now, it just doesn’t do what i need it to do. Such a bummer
Better than DockPhone, but could use some more development...
I got this after getting PhoneDock, which did not come with a dialer, so that went into the trash. This app does what is says, but is nothing fancy to look at or delightful to use. Really basic. Some things that would make it better: some preferences, such as start on login, a menu bar icon, sizable keypad, and message and perhaps even email options when you are in the contact list. One more thing, I know it some sort of wierd apple thing to make a 3rd party app click to confirm calling, but we don’t need that. when I click on dial, just do it! Well, that’s it. Good luck!
Love this App - In-Call Dialing Does Work!
In call dialing does work. Once you connect the call, just use the numbers / keypad on your computer’s keyboard. What’s happening is that once the call is made, the app seems to switch to Facetime. You won’t hear the tones when you press the keys on your keyboard, but the prompt or entry will be recognized. If you try using the app’s keypad interface on the screen instead, you’ll hear the tones, but nothing happens. A bit confusing, but it works using the keyboard nonetheless. IMHO the app is still very useable and a great productivity booster.
