Continuity Keypad is a new utility, currently in beta, for your Mac designed to help you place phone calls using OS X Yosemite's new ability to make calls through your iPhone. It's dead simple, just a giant keypad right on your Mac.
Continuity Keypad allows you to call and redial from the app. You enter a number, using either the software buttons or your keyboard's number row or pad. The either press the green button at the bottom of the app, or hit Return on your keyboard. You'll see a banner from your Mac with the contact or new number that you're about to call, and you can select to go ahead with the call or cancel. You can save new contacts from Keypad, as well as redial and return calls.
The developer has said that they don't store any of your private information, and nothing is ever sent to a server. While Continuity Keypad is currently in beta, it has already been submitted for approval in the Mac App Store (the beta version hasn't been signed, either, which means you may have to adjust your Mac's Gatekeeper setting in the Security & Privacy system preference before it can run). The release version will be available for $0.99, and will have more features, but exactly what those are is not yet clear.
