Aliases in FaceTime for Mac
Authored by: corndoggyrob on Oct 24, '10 09:28:51AM
I have spent a few hours playing around with ideas to better automate facetime calling. Even though it's not currently scriptable, there are ways around it. Example AppleScript App:


property defaultCall : "facetimeuser@me.com"

set userInput to display dialog "QuickFaceCall version 0.9.8 Beta" & return & return & "Enter the iPhone number, email address, or AppleID of the person you want to Facetime:" default answer defaultCall buttons {"Cancel", "Call"} default button 2

set ft to text returned of userInput

if the button returned of userInput is "Call" then
	
	tell application "System Events"
		open location "facetime:" & ft
		-- start AUTO CALL
		-- comment the following lines out if you do NOT want AUTO CALL
		activate application "FaceTime"
		do shell script "sleep 1"
		activate application "FaceTime"
		keystroke return
		-- end AUTO CALL
	end tell
	
end if

end
