Google Voice apps returning to iPhone app store (update: they’re here!)
It’s been a long time coming — now native Google Voice apps have finally returned to the iTunes App Store. This, after a fourteen month hiatus in which we saw an FCC investigation into the matter that culminated in a loosening of App Store restrictions. So far, we’re only seeing the $3 GV Connect app in the store with GV Mobile + coming sometime Saturday morning according to its developer, Sean Kovacs. No word on when the official Google Voice iPhone app will make its appearance, but surely it can’t be long — Phil must have had a chance to study the app he personally rejected didn’t approve by now, right?
Update: We’d been checking our iPhones all day long to no avail, but it’s finally here. As of 1:30AM ET, GV Mobile + has been formally approved and is now available for $2.99 on the iTunes App Store.
