Google Voice App for iPhone – GV Connect Now Available On the App Store For $2.99

Written By Sam on 18 September 2010

Finally the wait is over and Apple has approved “GV Connect” that allows you to interact with your existing “Google Voice” account much faster than using the web interface from your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. GV Mobile was recently submitted to the App Store after Apple changing its App Store guidelines. GV Mobile was earlier removed from the App Store stating that it duplicates a functionality that was already present in iPhone. Currently GV Mobile is available from Cydia and the current acceptance from Apple made it available for those non-jailbreakers also.

GV Connect Features

  • Place calls using your Google Voice number rather than your mobile number – enter number directly, select a contact from your device’s contacts, or call back any number in your history.
  • Send and receive text messages (SMS) from your Google Voice number.
  • Listen to voicemails and recorded conversations right on your device (allowing you to pause, rewind, or fast forward to any point within the message) – voicemails will also show the transcription of the message when available.
  • Mark messages as starred, attach notes to conversations, block/unblock senders, or delete conversations.
  • Easily search in your history by contact, message, or note.
  • Messages are stored on your device for offline access.
  • Composing notes and text messages can be done in landscape mode.
  • Quickly change various Google Voice account settings (call forwarding, do-not-disturb, message notifications, …) directly from within the application.
  • Automatic checking for new messages while the application is active.
  • Direct access to your device’s contacts without needing to synchronize them with Google
  • All communication is done with the Google Voice website directly, no need to hand over your account information to a third-party.
  • Full support for fast app switching in iOS4 and high-resolution graphics for retina displays.
