A working phone app
I am usually busy with computer work, and I do not want to be distracted from phone push alerts so I always lock my phone in a drawer. But doing so means I will also miss all the phone calls. I haven't found a solution until I find this app.
I read some previous not-so-positive reviews before I thought I would still give this app a try. And I do not regret it. I just made and received phone calls on my computer, without touching my phone, thanks to this app. The sound is clear, without any static. This app is amazing. Thanks to the developer!
i spend more time on my mac than outside. so if there is an app can help me anwsering my calls by my mac it will be awesome and i am always looking for such an app. now here it is. Phonebox is such a great app to meet my demand. i can get alerts or answer the calls by my mac without using my iPhone. Great!
this app can help you record some phone calls which is is a shortage of iPhone. but it would be better if it could be intergrated into iOS system and record automatically.
