Phone Plugins 2.1 released
Nova Media has released the latest version of its quick-dial/quick SMS cell phone-to-Mac integration application, Phone Plugins 2.1. The application allows users to easily link their Mac to their phone via Bluetooth, and with 'one-click', send a text message to that number from any application in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Phone Plugins 2.1 brings compatibility with over 165 cell phones, including the latest models from Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Samsung. Feature changes in 2.1 include the addition of visual confirmation of sent SMS messages within OS X, a unique 'one-touch' Bluetooth connection wizard (that does not require a Mac restart), and also the addition of 'dial number' and 'send text' options to the Mac OS X Services menu.
Requiring Mac OS X 10.5.2 or higher and a compatible cell phone, Phone Plugins 2.1 costs $10 for new users, or is free for current users of version 2.0. A free demo version is also available.
