New In The App Store – GV Mobile

On April 25, 2009

I am super excited to see GV Mobile finally released. We’ve been looking forward to this release for a while and are excited to see how it takes Google Voice to the next level. Here’s the scoop…

GV Mobile brings the power of Google Voice to your iPhone. GV Mobile allows users of Google Voice to:

+dial numbers via the iPhone address book or typing on the keypad +send SMS +retrieve and delete recent call history +playback and delete voicemails +take calls from different phones other than your iPhone +enable or disable the phones that Google Voice forwards calls to +add or delete phones that Google Voice forwards call to GrandDialer users, this is your replacement app! You must already have a Google Voice account in order for this application to work. Grand Central users that have converted their account to Google Voice will also be able to use this.

How does GV Mobile work? GV Mobile initiates a secure connection with Google Voice and sends a command to do various tasks(call, send sms, etc). GV Mobile communicates only with Google Voice, no one else. Please note that GV Mobile relies heavily on the use of an internet connection (3G, EDGE, Wifi, etc).

If your internet connection is shady a best, this app may not function properly. A future update will include Offline Mode™ which will allow for dialing using your Google Voice number without the need of an internet connection. By using GV Mobile, you understand that I am not liable for data charges you may incur. Any drastic changes on Google’s end may make GV Mobile inoperable. With that said, I plan on fully supporting this app to ensure it functions if changes occur. (GV Mobile is not a product of Google)

We’ll have a first look some time tomorrow. For now… GV Mobile is $2.99 and is available HERE.
