  • 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).

      1.2.1 ISSUE FOUND!

      It won't remember my login credentials. Anyone second this?

      Though it looks like it's not saving settings when you exit and enter the app.. but it lets me into my GV account!

      FIX for saving Login Credentials!

      SSH to /Applications/GV Mobile
      Select all files and right click, click properties
      Change to 0777

      Now GV Mobile should remember your login and password! Enjoy!

      For those having settings not saving issue run this from terminal or ssh as root and you will be fine.

      Code:
      chmod -R mobile:mobile /Applications/GV\ Mobile.app

      Or:
      su
      chown -R mobile:mobile /Applications/GV\ Mobile.app

      The above from a MobileTerminal window fixes the remembering-settings issue for me.

      perfect timing, just got my invite for Google Voice from Google

      FYI it only took me like 2 weeks to get my invite. Ironically, after I did I posted about it on my Facebook status and found out a girl I went to high school with is married to a guy on the Google Voice team and he gave me 5 more invites. They are already gone, but if he gives me some more I'll be sure to check here for anyone needing any.
