Cool new ways to use Skype on your Mac
I got sent these details on cool new ways you can use Skype for Mac, so I’m posting them in here for you all to see!
Integrate Skype in your FileMaker solutions
With the plug-in you can use Skype to call landlines, mobile phones or other Skype users directly from your FileMaker records. You can also control your Skype contact list, start conference calls, send and receive chat messages without leaving FileMaker.
Skype users get $40 off on Timbuktu Pro 8.6
Timbuktu, the popular desktop remote access and control software from Netopia is now fully integrated with Skype. Timbuktu Pro enables you to share desktops, enable remote access and exchange files with other users. I have been using Timbuktu the past three years to remotely connect to my parent’s computer when they get stuck using their Mac.
With the new version of Timbuktu you can initiate calls from inside Timbuktu to Skype users, but more importantly you can automatically set up a Skype tunnel to connect to other users desktops without worrying about IP addresses and configuring firewalls. The Skype tunnel allows all data to be sent over a completely secure encrypted Skype connection.
Netopia currently offer Skype users $40 off when you buy Timbuktu Pro 8.6. Find out more
Control Skype with your voice
With Speakables for Skype you can control Skype with your Voice. When a Skype call comes in, you can answer it by simply saying “Answer Call” and when you are done just say “Hang Up” to finish the call. You can also set Speakables to call a specific contact just by saying his or her name.
Speakables for Skype is a pretty neat application that uses the built-in voice recognition software in Mac OS X.
