Phoner is a simple to use application that enables you to make phone calls to landlines, cell phones and VOIP applications.
Connected to a subscriber line as a SIP client, it can easily play the role of a softphone for your PC or laptop. It supports VOIP/SIP, CAPI and TAPI modes.
This means that you can use the application to make phone calls over an IP connection and if your PC is connected to a private branch exchange or public switched telephone network then you can use all the CAPI services.
Phoner displays a more than comprehensive interface that makes it accessible to users of all levels of experience and ages. Being a phone, to dial the number you want to call, you enter it using a classic push button dialer. You also get to add numbers to a phone book that is provided by the application. This comes in handy when you are typing a number and you want the application to provide you with the rest of the number without having to go through the entire phone book.
The application is also well structured, granting you quick access to all its main functions from the main window. It’s from there that you can change the connection mode, playback voice messages, activate the answering machine and adjust the volumes for the microphone and speakers.
Just like with an actual phone, the application enables you to send text messages as well as emails and keep a logbook of all the incoming and outgoing calls. It is capable of displaying the dialed number, type of call and of course start and end times.
In closing, Phoner is a nice and reliable tool that can help you connect with just about anyone that has an internet connection or a phone line.
Phoner is a SoftPhone application that enables you to make phone calls using just an ISDN and sound card.
The connection to analogue (POTS) and digital receivers (ISDN) is built up by using CAPI. This driver interface comes with your ISDN equipment.
Phoner establishes for outgoing calls a (chargeable) connection over your normal phone line. You will be charged the same as if you were using your normal phone device.
