Would love to hear how this is an improvement over making the call directly through FaceTime.

@micah Good question! I always felt like FaceTime's UI isn't ideal if you just wanna make a call. It feels like it has not been specifically designed for the purpose of initiating calls (well of course not, FaceTime is video calling primarily). That's why I developed DockPhone to provide a dedicated app in your Dock just to make calls from your Mac. Nothing else. Next, the included Today widget, and the Dictation feature make it quite unique. Just dictate the name or the phone number you want to call. During development I quickly got used to making use of this!

@micah @raffael_me this could be particularly useful for those that make back to back calls in the office. FaceTime wouldn't be able to make calls to non-iOS devices.

@raffael_me @rrhoover hey guys - quick update. I use handoff primarily vs. Skype these days (great to grab my phone if I have to walk away from my computer). DockPhone is a really nice UI. Well done, added to my daily app use

@micah I'm happy the app eventually could convince you!

@raffael_me only thing that would make it better is for it to collapse into the menubar and autorun on login.
