  • GV Mobile 2.0 for iPhone Coming to Cydia


    This wouldn't be the first time we've seen a Google Voice Mobile app appear in Cydia. Less than a year ago, jailbroken users with GV accounts were able to download and use the original GV Mobile app. Boy Genius shared a sneak peak of a Google Voice, GV Mobile 2.0, which will be available soon via Cydia.

    For those of you that don't already know, GV Mobile is an application that allows your iPhone to use all of the features that Google Voice offers and was even available in the App Store for a short period of time before Apple decided to remove it along with rejection after rejection. After being removed, the developer brought GV Mobile to Cydia. It seems the cycle repeats itself yet again.

    Boy Genius is reporting that 2.0 is much more fine tuned and tweaked than the previous version.

    “We’re really excited to tell you about it, too. It has been polished and refined — it had an injection of features — and we love using it, even in its non-final and beta form. For starters, dialed calls connect almost instantly, your iPhone contacts and favorites are accessible right within the app, there’s voicemail transcription viewing, and even multiple Google Voice account support. Advanced features like call forwarding phones, do not disturb settings as well automatic syncing, and even Growl support are on the to-do list.”
    My guess would be that this is an attempt to make apple rethink their positon on rejecting the App, and Google's way of flipping the finger to Apple.

      Push will make this magical. There's no use for the text messaging feature if you have to keep opening the app to check for stuff like that.

      Does it have sip support, or do we have to wait for the Gizmo5 implementation on Googles side to get it?

      I signed up and found out that you can't cancel your google voice account at this time. What a crock! Also, whenever someone leaves a voicemail, it is transcibed to SMS and sent to you. I am not signed up for SMS so it costs me $.20 every time I send or receive SMS! It's total bull**** to not be able to cancel your account after trying it out. For me there are no advantages in using GV Mobile and several disadvantages!

      All you have to do is go under settings, then go to where your cell phone is listed. Then hit edit. Notice a checkmark next to "Receive SMS on this phone (mobile phones only)"???? Just uncheck it, and you will not receive texts anymore.

      Why didn't you look for a way to turn off text messages instead of bashing Google voice? I think that when you sign up with your cell there is even a option for receiving sms's.

      You guys know you have disable SMS fowarding the cellphones (already posted here) and have them fowarded to your EMAIL instead, right? Replying to the email instantly sends a text back to whoever emailed you and saving the email addy = unlimited texting trough email aka FREE.

      I mean, this is obvious if you spent a whole 30 seconds going through GV's settings and understanding how it works before using it.
