First we found out that Sean Kovacs' Google Voice iPhone app GV Mobile was kicked out of the App Store. Then we learned that Google's own official Google Voice app was rejected entirely by Apple six weeks ago. We also learned that Google would be taking the app to the realm of the iPhone's Mobile Safari. Now, perhaps as a sort of weird happy ending to all of this, GV Mobile becomes a free app for jailbreakers via Safari.
In a blog post, Sean Kovacs, the creator of the app, writes:
Looks like Apple/AT&T pissed off a lot of people‚Ä¶lol
Anyway, I‚Äôll be releasing GV Mobile v1.2 on Cydia for free today or tomorrow, with an update coming in a couple weeks. Why free? People pirate it anyway, so why not. I do appreciate everyone that bought it – you are the ones that fueled this app to be what it is today. That doesn‚Äôt mean you have to go get a refund (because that would hurt me, not Apple).
Let‚Äôs put some pressure on Google to release the API for Google Voice! Then I can start doing some really cool
UPDATE: Complain to Apple @ http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html
To get the app, you'll need to jailbreak first. Follow this link for a simple guide.
