Remote Dialer adds dialing capabilities to any application. It can also be used as a standalone dialer. When the Dialer is loaded it appears in the system tray. Highlight a phone number in a document, in an html page or in a database or spreadsheet and copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl+C). The Dialer will pop up with the phone number ready to dial.
Phone numbers may also be typed.
