    Default 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 . . .

    Imagine the heat Apple would put on Google if they did... and news of the move got out to the media. Jailbreaking would increase exponentially.

    Thank God, the current mobile page of Google Voice sucks.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Bravo, perhaps this will open the door for more developers to get their cool/useful apps to us without the overbearing fingerpointing dictatorship of AT&T/Apple

    nice move google. smack those apple/at&t asshats. the smack would be much more painful if u just released it on cydia, but this is a start

    Yep, and it's great.

    The web app will allow Google to get their product out there, without Apple interfering...

    then google will just change the webpage. If its on the web, there's nothing apple can do about it

    maybe other companies will start doing this too, to bypass apple's approval process
