    Would be awesome to incorporate the phone.app thats on the iPhone which includes a dialer, contacts, favorites, all in one.

    I love the continuity feature of using my mac to make and receive calls. But what if we make a call that requires the dial pad to access menus and stuff? There's no way to do that on OS X.

    Would love to somehow see iMessage/Facetime/Contacts/Phone being rolled up into one app for OS X.

    I'm on 10.10 and you can already do that via FaceTime. Just called my service provider, because I knew they have a menu and I simply typed the number on my keyboard and it worked just fine. Bildschirmfoto 2015-06-09 um 11.20.35.png Bildschirmfoto 2015-06-09 um 11.20.40.png
