Ovolab Phlink 3 at MWSF
(booth 407) today announced the third major release of Phlink, its innovative telephony software for Mac OS X. Due next month, Phlink 3 introduces new features, including call snooping, support for Elgato's EyeTV and greater control over Phlink's functionality. Call snooping allows users to records all conversations that take place on the phone line--regardless of whether Phlink has been used to answer the phone--allowing users to track all conversations for later playback. The software now also allows users of Elgato's software for digital video recording to schedule recordings remotely over the phone. It also features an improved preferences window (for better customization), group calling features, easier voice mailbox setup, and support for Intel-based Macs. It is due in the second half of February for $150. Upgrades will be $40. Phlink is available for purchase on the showfloor for $140 ($10 off), which includes a free upgrade to version 3.
