Jailbreak developers have seemingly been on a role over the last few weeks, producing top-notch tweaks like CallBar and Apptivator. Well the streak doesn’t seem to be over, as yet another quality utility has landed in Cydia.

GVIntegrated is an iPhone package that installs a Google Voice client into your native iPhone app. Once installed, users can initiate a Google Voice call from the iOS dial pad…

Frequent Google Voice users couldn’t ask for anything more convenient. GVIntegrated gives the popular VOIP service system-level access, so it can be used without the need of opening a 3rd party application. The developer Justin Williams explains:

“Unlike other Google Voice apps, GVIntegrated’s primary user interface is the same Phone application you already use. GVIntegrated allows you to specify which calling experience you prefer globally as well as per contact.”

There is no springboard icon for GVIntegrated, all of the options can be configured through the Settings app. You can setup each contact to default to either your wireless carrier or the Google Voice service, or you can just decide between the 2 upon dialing.

If you use Google Voice a lot, or would if you didn’t have to bother with a 3rd party application, you might want to check out GVIntegrated. Add this utility to something like SMS GV Extension, and you can use the VoIP service natively for both phone calls and text messages.

GVIntegrated will run you $2.00 and is available in Cydia via the BigBoss repo.

Have you tried GVIntegrated? Thoughts?

  • If they integrate Skype as well, I’d buy this in a second. Imagine having all three fully integrated; voicemail, contacts, calls, etc? Great work so far, I just hope they keep adding features. 🙂

  • Phone GV Extension already exists to do this, and have been in the repos for quite a long time now. How is this one better?

    Also, SMS GV Extension does the same thing but with your normal text messages.

    It looks like this is a bit simpler to use than Phone GV Extension. Simpler has it’s place, but it’s not always better.

    Fewer options using Google to make outbound calls and the Contacts-based manager instead of Phone GV’s separate Dial Rules app.

    I tried out the vm integration with youmail and i didnt like it. It def wasnt hassle free. Sometimes the 3rd party is better to keep your basic equipment running bug free. Things like vm and phone are so impt i realized I’d really rather not mess with it.

    I bought this app but it doesn’t work. When I try to use it, it tells me that my GV username and password is incorrect, even though the same pass&username allows me to enter into the normal GV app. I think this might need an update, considering I paid money for it.

  • Will it work if your on an ipod touch??

  • Jacksparrow

    Phone gv extension is better than this IMO because it has more call options especially a offline call option when 3G is not available.

    But competition is a good thing and hopefully having two similar apps will drive some innovation in both.

    This isn’t VOIP in the traditional sense as this still uses cellular minutes to call google then google forwards that call with your gVoice number. It is however handy for not having to switch to the Google Voice application to dial a number.

  • Shannon

    Phone GV Extension (and SMS GV Extension for texting) does this too. I’ve been using them quite a while and I’m very happy with it. I use biteSMS with SMS GV Extension, so I have free texting thru Wifi/3G and can use the native Messaging app. Then can use Phone GV Extension to make calls thru the Phone app, with my choice of using my GV number or carrier number. It’s nice saving $30 a month on texting.

    Soooo I’m guessing I can’t use this since I’m running iOS 4.3.4?.. can someone confirm this, i’m little confused -__-

  • Chazz

    If I have Talkatone installed for incoming GV calls, can I set my GV# as my callback number (since I am not in the U.S. and setting my carrier number would be very expensive)?

  • ccutrer

    Is this compatible with iOS 5? Phone GV Extension is not (or at least wasn’t last time I tried with beta 1)

  • George

    I noticed that it olnly works with 10 digit dialing. When I dial with only 7 digits, the phone just calls out like normal and never uses GV. Any fix for that ?
