Back in September, Apple loosened up their app store acceptance policy to make way for apps coded with cross platform development tools and apps that were other wises persona-non-grata. One of those formerly forbidden apps was Google Voice which Apple had removed for further review for what might as well have been forever. Following Apple’s new laid back app store approach, a Google Voice app was finally accepted into iTunes, but it wasn’t until yesterday that Google’s official Google Voice app got the go-ahead from Apple.
The app is a free download for users and works just swimmingly for any Google Voice users. Some of the features touted by Google include cheap rates for international calls, free texting to US numbers, and voicemail transcription.
The app requires iOS 3.1 or later and can be downloaded herefrom iTunes.
And for all you international readers, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the app is for US customers only.
