  • Google Voice Coming via Webapp


    Google [and the FCC] wasn't too impressed by Apple's decision to block their Google Voice app from the App Store and has proceeded on another solution. Now they are working on a webapp (something that doesn't need Apple's approval) specifically designed for the iPhone with a appearance identical to the app that Apple rejected.
    Google says it is readying a replacement for the Google Voice app that will offer exactly the same features as the rejected app—except that it will take the form of a specialized, iPhone-shaped Web page. For all intents and purposes, it will behave exactly the same as the app would have; you can even install it as an icon on your Home screen.
    Nice move Google, not as cool as GV Mobile releasing on Cydia, but still . . .

      Well Google sure is determined not to let all that programming go to waste whether Apple wants them to or not. I say hell yeah Google why not.

      Reading threads here sometimes is like living in Groundhog Day.

      The same questions, the same comments, and the only thing that changes is how I want to kill myself after reading the same thing a fourth time in a TWO-page thread.

      ^OH MY GOD!!! can't you guys read??? GV Mobile is a 3RD PARTY App created for a 3RD PARTY Developer, it is on cydia and it IS a great appliction but we are talking about GOOGLE'S OFFICIAL WebApp here, it's been told the same thing about GV Mobile release like three times already for crying out loud.

      Returning to the topic, I hope the application saves the cookie and stay loged in at least for the whole day, I'm tired to log in every timr I use the current mobile page.

      GV Mobile rules, the only problem with it is no visual voicemail. I wouldn't even give out my mobile number anymore and just give out my Google Voice number if that was a part of it.

      And I know, I know, you get an immediately Gmail alert, but it's not the same!

      Google really wants there app on the iphone. I wonder if other companies will use a "webapp" as a workaround for not getting in the appstore...?

      wow - can web-based apps access the iPhone's address book?

      would seem like a security issue to me!

      this is definitely good news nonetheless!
