A quick alert to let you know that GV Mobile+, the Google Voice application by Sean Kovacs is free in the App Store for a few hours. According to Sean’s Twitter update, GV Mobile+ will go back to its normal price ($2.99) at around 10pm PST.

GV Mobile+ was released in the App Store last week after Apple loosened up the app approval process. It is the second Google Voice iPhone app to be approved in the App Store this since Apple changed the app approval process. GV Connect was the first one.

You can download GV Mobile+ from here. Hurry up!

UPDATE: The developer of GV Mobile+ is apparently pissed that we (and other sites) shared the news. As a result, the app is not free anymore.

UPDATE 2: The dev says on Twitter the app should be free again for just a few minutes. Hurry!

    Thanks, downloading now. Looked earlier and it was still 3 bucks. Not really sure what it’s for, but everyone is so excited about it thought I should pick it up.

    • Z

      Hahaha and I thought I was the only one! lol
      I think you need to have a google voice account. Seems like it is similar to skype. I don’t use google voice, nor do I know anyone who does. So I didn’t see the point of it, and 3 bucks is not a big deal for a good app.
      But I’m glad to see I wasn’t the only one. We are so cheap! lol

  • OS X User

  • Felix

  • jorn

    Seems to be over already 🙁

  • Justin

    Ok, if I understand this right, using google voice routes all my calls thru googles servers?

  • syssat

    still 2.99 for me.. 🙁 will keep checking…

  • Aks

    Says free when I search for it. But when to go to detail page to download it says 2.99.

  • Sue

    already over both in US and Canada, so much for “a few hours” looks like it lasted maybe 90 minutes

  • JB

    Free?? It’s 8:45pm pacific and it’s still $2.99… WTF is with this guy and his promises he keeps making and doesn’t keep. Give me a break!

  • Anonymous

    I emailed Sean Kovacs. He said Apple jumped the gun and put the price back up to $2.99 prematurely. He said that he was going to force it to be free again, and that we should check back in about 25 minutes from now.

    • JB

      Yeah, let’s all hold our breath…

  • Sue

    well things looked fine with both serch page and detail page saying free but then try downloading and it said item being modified, now both pages are back to 2.99 – what gives???

  • Sue

    WOW – its finally downloading (from US Store)!

  • Eseere

    Still shows 2.99 con Canadian store even thou it sas is free when I search it 🙁

  • Eseere

    When I searched for gv mobile was free and gv mobile plus showed as 2.99… Now they both show free but the app is still 2.99

  • Avi

    Now it says “Free” in search results, and then it changes to $2.99 on detail page. I guess it is some kind of replication delay.

    • Douglas

      Yes… Same here

      • Eseere

        ITunes shows 0$ but when clicked on buy it says that the item is being modified and to try it later… 🙁

  • Eseere

    Got it 🙂

  • Juan

  • Z

    Still free, got it. Maybe will start using it

  • Ian

    Yep, still free, just got it.

  • didnt found this application in indian store 🙁

  • Thisdood

    Got it earlier tonight! Thanks seb!

  • I love your website! did you create this yourself or did you outsource it? Im looking for a blog design thats similar so thats the only reason I’m asking. Either way keep up the nice work I was impressed

  • tom

    You’re the best!

  • Aaron!

    Just downloaded it from UK app store for free! Although I’m not sure what the use of it is?

  • tom

    i got it for free here from US store. 9am on sept 26th

  • Unfortunately, he basically hasn’t done any real work on updating it in like forever, so it’s kinda weak overall. The VoiceCentral Blackswan app is much better and being a true HTML 5 application, it doesn’t require going through the App Store at all.

    Go here for the free or paid version: http://voicecentral.riverturn.com/

  • Cojendo

    I love this website. Thanks Bas (I can call you Bas, right?)

    • Sure. I usually go by Seb or Seabass but Bas will do 😉

  • Poster

    To me this app seems pretty pointless. On droid devices you can get free txt over gv but this lacks such a feature. Maybe then it would be worth something.

  • hey

    Just saying hello while I read through the posts

    hopefully this is just what im looking for looks like i have a lot to read.

    P.s why are all the good usernames taken now a days ?
