HandsFree 2 turns your Mac into a powerful handsfree device so you can use the built-in microphone and speakers (or use a USB headset) to make phone calls, manage text messages (SMS and receive MMS) or record important conversations.
It works with almost any Bluetooth enabled phone (including Android, Windows Phone and iOS*). HandsFree 2 guides you through the pairing and connecting, then provides you with an always available menu bar icon so you can quickly use your phone without having to get it. You can even leave it in another room or your pocket.
It’s like OS X Continuity except for everyone and with more features. Download it today and see how awesome it is to use your phone through your Mac.

What's New in Version 2.6:
[New] Contact phone numbers now have a text label for easier identification instead of an icon.
[Fixed] Potential crash when closing the outgoing call window.
[Fixed] Potential crash when the phone is disconnected suddenly (ex: out of range).
[Fixed] Issue where the option to send a text message would sometimes not appear after connecting to the phone.
[Fixed] Issue where connecting to an iPhone would sometimes fail, leaving the app in an unusable state.
[Fixed] Issue where the caller name would have garbage characters when using an iPhone.
[Fixed] Issue where the dial pad would quickly jump up then back down in height when a call was placed.
[Fixed] Attachment icon overlapping the text message subject in the menu item.
[Improved] Dial pad window now moves just below the outgoing call window for a better user experience.
[Improved] App stability across the board.
[Improved] Using a new and clearer icon for switching audio sources in the call dialog.
[Improved] Completely re-written engine that deals with getting the phonebooks (outgoing, incoming, missed and contacts), getting existing SMS, listening for new SMS and sending SMS. The reliabilty of these features should be quite a bit better now.
