  • GV Mobile Now on Cydia [ ModMyi Repo ]


    Maybe you've seen GV Mobile was tossed out of the AppStore. Apple's "hey, we have apps that do that too... you can't be in here!" attitude is well documented (remember Podcaster? which wound up on Cydia in the MMi repo as well?), and once again a great app has been pushed out of folks' hands so Apple can minimize the competition.

    Well don't you worry, all you folks who still wanted the app - we've got it up in Cydia now and you can download away - completely free. Although, if you're nice, you'll toss Sean a few bucks donation for his work.

    EDIT: If you were having any issues installing version 1.2, grab 1.2.1 which is up now on Cydia - it fixes the issue!

    And for those of you who don't know what GV Mobile is, its brings the power of Google Voice to your iPhone.

    Google Voice is NOT a VOIP service, you still need an actual phone plan.

    GV Mobile allows users of Google Voice to:
    • dial numbers via the iPhone address book or typing on the keypad
    • Full SMS support (view historic, reply, send new)
    • 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.



    Google Voice is currently in beta and invite only, but expect those floodgates to open soon enough when they remove the invite only restriction.

    (GV Mobile is not a product of Google).

      Hey for anyone not being able to launch the app, an update should be coming out within a few minutes to fix - the developer had some protection code in which is being removed, and affects some devices!

      Yep, the phone you're receiving calls on (your carrier's assigned phone number) is still using minutes to receive the call; the calls are just routed through Google Voice.
