For immediate release
Ovolab announces Phlink 2.1, with support for key Tiger technologies.
Torino, Italy (Europe) – April 12, 2005 – Ovolab(r) today announced that
version 2.1 of Ovolab Phlink, its innovative and award-winning telephony
software for the Mac, will be available on Friday, April 29, 2005.
Version 2.1 of Ovolab Phlink adds support for the three most exciting new
technologies found in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, Apple’s next generation
operating system: Spotlight, Dashboard and Automator.
When performing searches, Spotlight is now able to find information about
past phone calls: searching for a friend’s name will not only find
references to the friend within documents on the system, but it will also
reveal all calls received from that person. Spotlight can index and search
through call-related information, such as the time and duration of the
call, the name of the remote party, and any notes that the user attaches to
the call in Phlink.
Ovolab Phlink 2.1 includes two Dashboard widgets – mini-applications that
are a keypress away from your desktop. By pressing a function key, a
Dashboard widget zooms across your desktop and displays the last five
incoming, outgoing and missed calls. A second widget lets you dial phone
numbers directly from the Dashboard, either using a keypad or choosing a
contact from your Address Book. Phlink’s Dashboard widgets also allow you
to control Phlink running on another Mac on the network.
Phlink’s actions for Automator are building blocks that can be easily
inserted in your workflows. Tell Automator to call you on your cell phone
when it has finished resizing 5,000 images. Or to call a list of people,
automatically, inviting them to your next meeting.
Ovolab Phlink turns your Mac into a powerful answering machine and
telephone information center. Widely used in the home, home office and in
businesses, it greets callers with personalized greetings, plays
caller-specific ringtones, forwards voicemail messages by email, and much
more. Ovolab Phlink gives a professional touch to your telephone line: it’s
a perfect choice for shops, home offices and small businesses, while it
also allows families to make their telephone part of the digital hub.
