Google Voice On The iPhone Comes Full Circle As Apple Accepts GV Mobile
This is a post I've looked forward to writing for a long time — and I'm surprised that I'm even getting the chance. In July 2009, we broke the news that Apple had banned Google Voice from the iPhone. But it hadn't just blocked Google's official application — it had also removed two third-party applications that had already been live on the App Store for months: GV Mobile, which was created by Sean Kovacs; and VoiceCentral, developed by Riverturn . Of course, Kovacs and Riverturn hadn't done anything wrong — they'd simply gotten caught in the crossfire of the growing rivalry between Apple and Google. Fast forward to today: nearly fourteen months after it was unceremoniously removed from the App Store, Apple has finally reinstated one of the applications that started it all. You can download the new version of GV Mobile+ right here . The application has been available in Canada most of the day, but only hit the US store minutes ago.
