Maybe this really is a day we’ll never forget after all! Even though the Google Voice web app was pretty good, I always wondered why Google didn’t release an official app, especially since Apple loosened up its App Store approval process. It’s something I will never wonder again as Apple gave the green light today to the official Google Voice app.

There are already a couple Google Voice apps (1, 2) selling in the App Store, but seeing how good the new official app looks like, and the fact that it comes at the unbeatable price of $0, the official Google Voice application will probably be a success…

I’ve played with it for a few minutes and I already know it will replace GV Mobile+, the unofficial Google Voice app I currently use on my iPhone. I really like how you can see your voicemail transcribes as well as listen to your voicemails at the same time. It’s a nice detail, especially since Google Voice handles all my voicemails.

Google Voice is available in the US only. If you have a Gmail address and a US phone number, setting up Google Voice is quick and easy.

You can download the Google Voice app from here.

  • Sweet. I do think this just replaced GV Mobile+ for me too. Looks good.

    Acting very buggy for me on a jailbroken iphone4. When 4.2 comes out, I may give up jailbreaking. My phone has just become a little too buggy to justify the JB anymore.

    Not seeing it from my phone. 4:15pm est. Must be phased rollout.

    i did just get the gv mobile+ yesterday. funny to see it up here, now i have to get this one. only thing I did not like is, you still are not able to make VoIP calls with this app. if you know of any set up that i don’t to get this to work please let me know.

    • Unfortunately there is no way around it 🙁

    I’m glad this was released. The developer of GV Mobile + was being a douche-bag lately. This even has Push Notifications.

    this app is only good for incoming calls if your trying to use your a-list. gv mobile + lets you dial out using your google number. which is on my a-list. this app dials out from a different number everytime you dial a different number. no good if your trying to get free calls with your a-list.

    GV Mobile much better for me. It allows me to have Google Voice call me back on the phone of my choice, if I don’t want to use my pay-per-use cell minutes. The official GV app only lets you use the iPhone to make calls.
