Continuity Keypad icon

Continuity Keypad iconContinuity Keypad is a dialer to easily make handoff iPhone calls on your Mac. Continuity Keypad requires Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite because it uses Apple’s new Continuity feature coming with the new iOS 8 and Yosemite. By using Continuity, you can make and receive phone calls on those devices as long as your iPhone running iOS 8 is on the same Wi-Fi network. Incoming calls show the caller’s name, number, and profile picture. However, a dialer keypad is missing in Yosemite. You need to tap or click a phone number in Contacts, Calendar, or Safari. Continuity Keypad fills this lack.
