Telephone allows you to make phone calls over the Internet or your company’s network. If your phone line supports SIP protocol, you can use it on your Mac instead of a physical phone anywhere you have a decent network connection.
• Address Book contacts autocomplete
• Multiple accounts
• Sending tone signals (just press numbers on the keyboard when call window is active)
• Call history
• Call waiting
• Making calls by clicking sip: and tel: links
Telephone Pro is a subscription to unlock the full call history and to support ongoing app development. The subscription has a monthly and a yearly option. The prices are displayed in Telephone’s storefront at the time of purchase. Payment will be charged to your iTunes account and auto-renews unless disabled in your iTunes account settings at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. The subscription can be managed in your iTunes account settings.
To set up Telephone and make calls you need an account at a SIP provider or at your company’s phone server.
• Bug fixes.
• More compatibility with Deutsche Telekom.
Ratings and Reviews
Did work well.
No issues at all with function as VOIP client.
Took me less than a minite to hook up to my VOIP system.
One minor problem is the lack of a mute button sincd OS X doesn't provide any reasonable way of muting the microphone.
Revised rating: down to three stars.
This used to be close to perfect, minimal but all the functionality required of a basic VOIP phone app.
However, it has now moved to subscription model (I would gladly pay for the application, but subscription? Never!).
It still works without a subscription, but nags each time it is launched.
A new “feature” is a list of previous calls. I don’t want this. In particular, I don’t want a list of who I have been talking with displayed on my screen for all the world to see.
The number of previous calls made is limited in the non-subscription version, but neither version seems to have the ability to completely suppress this unwanted “feature”.
For over a year, there have been promises of new functionality (for subscribers). None seem to have materialized, it has just been left in this annoying state.
Actively looking for a replacement.
Simple and works great
It's really challenging to find a good SIP client with a good interface and where the developer is available to listen to your suggestions. Telephone surprised me.
Audio stops working eventually with Telephone while running Kodi.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
