Sean Kovacs’s Google Voice application for iPhone GV Mobile+ has finally been released in the App Store. After being removed from the App Store for replicating already existing features of the iPhone, Google Voice Mobile made its way to Cydia. Then when Apple loosened the app approval process a few days ago, they told Kovacs he could resubmit his application.

GV Mobile+ is probably the most popular Google Voice application, but it is not the first one to appear in the App Store. Yesterday, GV Connect was officially approved and became the first Google Voice application to return to the Store for download…

GV Mobile+ is available for download for $2.99. Developer Sean Kovacs said he will be giving away promo codes on Twitter and he will also make the application free for a short period of time. So if you don’t feel like paying 3 bucks now, hang on for a while until it’s free (I know I will).

    Will be great to see comparison between Cydia GV mobile+, app version and GV connect. I have Cydia version and got Connect yesterday. Waiting for free app store version. Now, is Apple still ‘reviewing’ google’s version? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Burge

    Seb what store is it in ?

    • akag9

      Not in US one at the moment. Right? @seankovacs just tweeted that it’s beeing ‘propagated’ right now…

  • It’s in your mama store ,,,,, WTF where you think it is , the app store daaaa!

    • Burge

      US app store, UK app store or the fucking app store for little wankers like you cunt. What’s in US store might not be in UK store or don’t you know this you little prick….

  • TattoozNTech

    still not available in the US Store yet!

  • iPhoNerd

    not yet available in US (4:35PM EST). I heard it is coming to app store today some time in the morning and was constantly checking app store. I have no idea how Sebastien claimed it is released :O

    • iPhoNerd

      Not appearing in App Store, if you click the link Sebastien provided, iTunes says the item you have selected not available in US stores :D. blogged a bit too early Sebastien? ๐Ÿ˜›

      • akag9

        I guess Seb just relayed the message from developer: @seankovacs tweeted it was released…

  • iPhoNerd

    I learned from twitter that it hit Canadian app store servers? any canadian out here to confirm? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • LuckyLuke

      Yes, it’s available in Canadian AppStore.

      • iPhoNerd

        Thanks, eager to hear the response from users ๐Ÿ™‚ GV Connect seems to be at a bad start, hope GV Mobile+ would rectify the issue. Ultimately we need native @google voice application in the Store. Wondering will google ever resubmit their native application to apple ๐Ÿ™

  • It rocks…

  • GV Mobile + FAIL!

    • iPhoNerd

      Any reason??? Or simply shouting??? Lol

  • I’ve checked but don’t see it yet?

    Kick Butt

  • Yeah sorry about that guys. The link is correct and the app has been approved but I guess it has to propagate through Apple’s servers. Try again a little later.

    • LuckyLuke

      Or create Canadian AppStore account. :o)

  • Mac

    Wow people are going banana
    about this app

  • Yeah it is available in Canada, and it is a pretty cool app to be honest. Glad it was finally approved by the App Store. We jailbreakers had to pay for it before, so it will be nice to get it for free! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jason masters

    Gv connect sucks gv mobile is much better and yes I have both.

  • iPhoNerd

    Alright guys it’s coming to US store pretty soon. It seems that Seankovacs selected Philippines instead of US by mistake it seams. He fixed it and waiting to pop in US stores anytime now. Source: @Seankovacs

  • Felix

    Maybe it’ll appear tomorrow. I’m not seeing it yet.

  • Mac

    It s there I got it but it keeps
    crashing because I got 3.1.3 firmware

  • iPhoNerd

    It is working perfect on iOS 4.1. Though I could not grab one of his promo code from twitter in time. I was less than a minute late. Though he is rolling out another 50 more codes in few minutes on twitter, go grab them and enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  • joseph

    its up now

  • Jason masters

    Ok which is better the cydia version or the new AppStore version??

  • appletiser

  • Jason masters

    For Tmobile prepaid there is one small setback but not a killer just a setback there’s no call forwarding so no native visual voicemail ala google voice
