Ever wonder how to make phone calls in your Mac?
CallPad is a very simple app to ease making phone calls without picking up your iPhone. CallPad requires an iPhone with iOS 8 or later and an activated carrier plan.
Phone calling works with any iOS device that supports iOS 8 or later and any Mac that supports Yosemite.
In order for CallPad to function, you MUST have FaceTime enabled and activated, iCloud enabled and the preference setting in FaceTime on iOS and Mac to allow "iPhone Cellular Calls".

Can’t close help screen
Perfect app except the annoying dialog box that pops everytime you use the app - can’t close it and it takes up about a quarter of the screen.
Today Widget Unusalbe on Light Theme
I bought this solely for the Today widget, the problem is they designed it so it only supports the black theme.
Somehow it’s setup so when using the light theme all of the buttons are white, and the numbers on the buttons is white as well, meaning you can only dial based off of rememberign what number is where.
It makes the Today widget so inconvient it’s unusable, leaving this ONLY a dialing app (which can be replicated by the built in FaceTime app).

Great little app
Yes, you can dial numbers directly from FaceTime, but how many clicks is that? Not fun. The CallPad app is very cool.
Also, in my experience, you don’t need to keep FaceTime running and soaking up resources to keep it ready for your occasional call. CallPad boots up FaceTime for you, then shuts it down nicely when the call is done.
It would be a great addition to have a mute button. Overall it's well worth the 99 cents.
I’d like to note that the developer created another fantastic app that hides all the junk that ends up on my desktop. That app is called HiddenMe and it’s free. That’s the one I got first. I was so happy with that app, the least I could do was try CallPad give the developer the 99 cents - two great apps for 99 cents!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
