  • GV Mobile+ Now Available in the AppStore


    GV Mobile, an incredibly popular Google Voice App that we once saw on Cydia, has made it's way back into the AppStore. Yesterday we discussed the return of Google Voice and GV Connect, one of the first GV apps to get approved, however, what I'm sure most of us were waiting for was GV Mobile+, by Sean Kovac.

    GV Mobile, the Cydia version, allowed for SMS support, voicemail, and a few other obvious features. However, now with GV Mobile+ being back in the AppStore, there are a ton of new features added to GV Mobile, including the ability to actually make phonecalls through GV directly on your iDevice.

    The Apps is available for $2.99 for the first week of sales, and there will be one night that Sean offers the App for free. So keep your eyes peeled! Remember, his blog can be found here and you can follow him on twitter, @seankovacs.

    After a long year and a half of being home sick, GV Mobile (+) makes an epic return to the App Store. The app is still propagating to all the servers, so it may take a bit before it shows up. Here is the direct link: GV Mobile +. I’ll be blowing away some promo codes via Twitter (@seankovacs) once I get them AND if #gvmobile trends on Twitter, I’ll set that bad boy to free for the night.
    Download GV Mobile+ today.

    UPDATE:
    Question: I bought this on Cydia, why am I having to buy it AGAIN!?!! >??
    You don’t. Next Saturday night, it will go FREE for the night for all my Cydia folks.

    GV Mobile+ allows users of Google Voice to do the following with ease:
    +dial numbers via the iPhone address book, entering on the keypad, or choosing from the internal favorites
    +send, retrieve, and delete SMS messages
    +retrieve and delete recent call history
    +playback and delete voicemails
    +take calls from different phones other than your iPhone
    +enable, disable, add, or delete the phones that Google Voice forwards calls to

      I don't like Devs who aren't consistent with what they tell us (the customer). I don't want to pay a third time for an app I already paid before, simple. You may want to look up the definition of what a troll is btw

      Does it have push notifications? GV Connect is great, except it doesn't have notifications when I exit the app. Might as well text in Safari.

      I hear you. I bought it in the App Store and then again in Cydia. Now it looks like I will buy it again in the App Store. Can't wait for it to get yanked again from the App Store and then rereleased as GV Mobile+ Pro on Cydia for my fourth payment.

      Cydia had both the regular version and + version. How do you pay for an app twice? lol sounds foolish to me. What is the difference between the free regular version and the + version?

      I bought the app store version and then the one in cydia because the app store one was yanked. So I had to get the cydia one for version updates.

      I would ALMOST (key word here) pirate this app due to this dev being a jerk.

      Hey if it's an open source that you can download as well why not get it for free, these apps are over priced anyway and my phone should do what I want it to do whether I pay for that app or not it's really up to the individual. Did you jb your phone before July? If so you broke rules that dealt with apple. Not a big deal anymore but it's still under your warranty void if you did. So yes I will tweak my phone with any app that has it and I'd eater not pay for it.

      He's site says push is planned so I don't think this release will have it.

      I'm well aware of the more modern definition.

      To my point: do you have the app? The free version is still on Cydia- no waiting necessary. If you've bought a paid version of it, just keep using it to call your troll friends.

      I highly doubt the reviews in the app store are negative, since it isn't available yet for most of us. It sucks for people like Stealth who have paid for it already, but the blame for this one lies with Apple, not the dev.
