Jon's Phone Tool Updated With Improved Code

Jonathan Nathan has released an update for Jonis Phone Tool, bringing it to version 1.2. Jonis Phone Tool is a utility designed for automated phone dialing. The update features improved code and a modified search feature. According to Jonathan Nathan:

Jonathan Nathan is pleased to announce that Jonis Phone Tool v1.2 has been released.

Jonis Phone Tool is a scriptable phone dialing application. JPT uses either your Macis built-in speakers or the modem to dial a phone number. You can enter a phone number manually or you can use the integrated search tools to find numbers in your Address Book, Microsoft Entourage, Now Contact, or Palm Desktop databases.


  • Added support for Mac OS 10.2. While supporting Mac OS 10.2, JPT is optimized for Mac OS 10.3+
  • Significant code improvements eliminated the need for the background only application “jpt_daemon” resulting in a host of benefits inclusing a significant decrease in RAM requirements, CPU usage, file size of the application itself, and real-time updating of the JPT Quick Dial menu items
  • Modified the search feature. If you are searching one of the supported PIM applications (Address Book, Entourage, Now Contact, or Palm Desktop) and start your search string with a “^” then the search will be executed on many more fields for each contact (such as email, phone, company, notes, etc.). In this way you can also do a reverse lookup by phone number or email address
  • Added a new script, “JPT Location Manager” to facilitate changing the dialing configuration in one step
