Yet, walk into any office supply store and you’ll still be able to buy a fax machine; the old fashioned kind. Even better, many all-in-one printers have a built-in fax send and receive option. So, why would you want to send or receive a fax on a Mac?
A Fax By Any Other Name…
For Mac users who prefer to save time and remain efficient, iFax might be the right way to manage faxes digitally. Right from the Mac’s screen, on a per fax document basis.
iFax is an app for the Mac and a faxing service so the app is free and you pay only for the number of faxes and pages you send, and the destination.
The iFax app on the Mac is about as skeuomorphic as you can get. It looks like a fax-phone on your Mac’s screen.
iFax can handle PDFs and other Mac documents, import files from Mail, upload or download to and from the web (and managed TIFF and JPG images, too). iFax comes with a customizable cover page template and it uses the private and secure HIPAA-compliant enterprise level fax technology.
How does it work? Simply and straighforwardly and with your iTunes account to pay as you go. However, there are options to obtain a dedicated fax phone number and unlimited inbound faxes. It’s also easy to add signatures to documents from within iFax.
iFax just works. That explains the many thousands of four and five star reviews from Mac App Store customers. That’s also how you pay for faxes– your iTunes account. Scan a document to your Mac, drag and drop onto iFax, add a cover page, enter the recipients number, and click– faxes just work.
