Ratings and Reviews
Nope. Did not work
Did not connect with iPhone. Waste of money
poor sound quality
I use this app with Iphone4S. The sound quality is very inconsistent. Sometimes, it is ok, sometimes, it is unusable and I have to scramble to find my phone. I don’t have the echo issue mentioned by others since I use the headset. The interface can be improved. The reconnect wizard is very annoying, if the same phone reconnects successfully, close the wizard! Also, a single click should bring up the menu, not double. Be consistent with the UI behavior of the rest of the system! I cannot recommend this app to others at this point but hope it can address some of these issues in future releases.
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!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
