Icon ABDialer 2.3.1

With the Apple Address Book included with Mac OS X you have a system wide address book with sync ability and much more. But what if you need to place a phone call to a contact in your Address Book? You can have your computer autodial using some mobile phones, but you can't do this with your home phone line. One year ago ABDialer introduced the ability to use your desk phone to dial from Address Book and now, with ABDialer 2, you can do even more. New features, new look and even more integration.
